Pappy evokes images of preachers, ramblin’ gamblers and whiskey stills draped over Appalachian Mountains acoustic guitar and fiddles. His vocals are the perfect vessel for the storytelling-style of songwriting he is known for. Banjo figures largely into the music, and his picking prowess will come as no surprise to fans of Cabinet, the bluegrass/jam outfit he has helped propel to acclaim via lively and well-received shows on the touring and festival circuit. But Pappy is not all bluegrass. Not entirely. Drawing from the well of earthy rock, country, folk and gospel artists that have come before, like The Band, Grateful Dead, John Prine, his performances are low-key and understated, but the musicianship — not surprisingly — is of the highest order. Pappy is carrying on a tradition as old as the hills but, as new as each coming morning.
