A couple of weeks ago, I finally got to check out the muched-buzzed about band The Tillers, nominated for a Cincinnati Entertainment Award in the Folk/Americana category. Playing in the Southgate House's "lounge" room, the trio (playing stand-up bass, guitar, banjo and more) huddled around a single, vintage-looking, multi-directional mic and delivered their sweet, accomplished spin on traditional Folk, Country, Gospel and Blues.
The band's debut, Ludlow Street Rag (released by Bloomington, Ind.-based label, Chestnut Tree Records), is the next best thing to seeing the band live (their harmonies are especially resonating in a concert setting).
The next, next best thing to seeing them live? This cool music video, for the band's song "There Is a Road (Route 50)."
