A hard-scrabble package of folk, rock and bluegrass
The Dirty River Boys make music with the type of sound and texture that’s soaked in the realities of the hard-scrabble city they call home in the far west Texas desert. They’re known for their rousing live shows that feature winning four-part harmonies and stout acoustic instrumentation. Fans clamored for the release of the band’s first two EPs, Long Cold Fall and Train Station, and buzz for their self-titled first full-length recording was deafening. It takes determination and talent to make waves when you come from the dust and dirt of El Paso, but The Dirty River Boys prove they’re up to the challenge by fusing traditional folk instruments with rock and bluegrass arrangements to blaze a trail all their own. The Dirty River Boys’ style blows away any preconceived notions of what acoustic music can be. Harmonicas and fiddles cut melodies that blend with furious licks spilling from guitars and mandolins alongside explosive percussive rhythms all combined to create a whirling dervish of musicality.
