With bands like Mumford & Sons and the Avett Brothers launching into mainstream success with the current folk revival, there are a lot of bands standing by, with banjo in hand and a glimmer in their eye that says, “Yeah, we do that. We’ve been doing that for years. We’re pretty damn good at it too.” Well, we’d like to introduce you to another one of these bands: The Giving Tree Band
The Giving Tree Band already have four albums under their belt (you can sample some of the music from these albums on their webpage), and their fifth, Vacilador, is on the way October 2nd. The past few years leading up to Vacilador, The Giving Tree Band has been amassing fans and praise from all the right places. This could well be the album to push them through to the next level.
