This is a belated update, but I put out a new track as part of the 2010 Zunior Holiday Album called A Country Blues Christmas.
The track is called 'Snowfort' and it an original collaboration between Andrew Green and myself. I set out to create a true 'county blues' track in the pre-war country blues style. Stuff like Mississippi John Hurt is the real deal...and Egger ain't, but we tried anyway.
I made up the words and vocal melody and recorded it here in Toronto. The file went sight unseen to Andrew Green and he cut a crackin guitar part. The result is simple, clean and fun.
Stay tuned for a new Egger EP in the spring of 2011.
