This Music is fronted and mostly written by by storyteller, historian and gentleman singer-guitar player Andrew Lee Modder aka Mud River Lee. Modder examines life through the eyes of Mud River Lee & with The Bluegrass Orchestra he ties it together. Around since the 1970's in the Midwest, he surrounds himself with no ordinary talent, showcasing a folk country spirit in sub zero temperatures, but belting out love tunes with some of the prettiest melodies written today. His band is diverse in that it features a combination of warm ballads, waltz's, and bluegrass stylings that bring a breeze of warmth that will make you wonder if they are indeed nestled in the cool midwest,and not on the Streets of Laredo, nor balmy Kentucky. This songwriter has cast many memorable tunes that should be catalogued and recognized for their music value from a strong music region as Wisconsin patriots cite. Listen as Mud River Lee depicts sewing, eating scrumptuous catfish, portray ships sinking, and absolve guilty raccoons...Enjoy a taste of the kind of country that you will enjoy--sprung from the dirt by the hands of those who not only kneed the soil, but bare the fruit for you to witness. Thank you.
