This Midwestern boy has been known to make a ruckus. Todd Day Wait's Pigpen offers fine acoustic music, the kind loved by people of all ages and backgrounds. Is it blues, bluegrass, country, folk? Pigpen's music harkens to the roots, to an era where all three of those genres fit together just right, before there was a difference. These boys have been known to conjure up crisp boogies and out-of-control barn-burners as wild as a late night hayride. To contrast to their upbeat tunes, they've got songs as lonesome as kicking down a dusty gravel road in the middle of nowhere with a guitar slung over your shoulder and a pocket full of nothing.
The group's leader, Missouri-born songster Todd Day Wait, is a seasoned road man whose homespun and heartfelt original tunes are the focus of the project. Wait's honest and approachable style is augmented by his choice of accompanists. Together, the unique voices in the Pigpen form a backwoods symphony of their own that defies easy description.
