IMPORTANT See Lamplighter post regarding these shows.
“Peter Mulvey is all substance, which is his style.”
When Randy Sabien picks up his violin- get ready. The consummate musician, he can play inside and outside the lines with musicians of all stripes or plaids. “Showing technical dexterity, sentient depth, pleasing tone and keen phrasing in courteous respect to Stephane Grappelli.” Downbeat
Count This Penny is from Madison (Wisconsin) by way of East Tennessee. They write songs born of doggedly traveling to and from the hills of home.
Since their first show at the Down Home’s Open Hoot in 2009, CTP has appeared on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion, Wisconsin Public Radio, Wisconsin Public Television’s 30-Minute Music Hour, and WDVX’s Blue Plate Special in Knoxville, Tennessee. Following their national radio debut in March, their EP hit the #6 spot on the iTunes singer-songwriter chart.
“If you like the Everybodyfields, the Civil Wars, or some old school Gram and Emmylou, you will dig Count This Penny.” –Muzzle of Bees
“Folks may have a faint idea of what to expect from a band that describes what it does as “Appalachian pop,” but they’ll likely be surprised by how instantly inviting Count This Penny sounds. It’s music steeped in old American traditions, but the concise form the songs adhere to and the pop structures the band employs make the songs modern and streamlined enough to thrive far from the mountains where their inspiration first saw the light of day.” –The Onion’s A.V. Club, Madison, WI
