Other Johnny Rock Records news:
Fellow JRR band The Southern Tenant Folk Union are also touring in the UK and Ireland. Their new CD 'Pentcaitland,' released in the summer, has been doing really well.
‘The band knock up a fierce, raw and earthy music that is the stuff of Mumford & Sons' dreams…the results are as compelling as they are oppressively bleak’
Maddy Costa, The Guardian (Friday Film & Music)
‘Pencaitland is their most serious and ambitious album yet’
Andrew Mueller, UNCUT
‘Atmospheric, with sonorous rumbles of bowed double bass and melancholy harmonica against a stealthy ticking of strings’
Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman
