It doesn’t matter that guitarist Rick McLean probably wasn’t born when the New York anti-folk movement started in the early 1980s or even understands its importance in American music history. What matters is that once an established artistic movement, like the wave of Twin Ports folk and bluegrass acts, begins to take itself too serious, it desperately needs a young acoustic/punk bohemian like McLean to come forth and toss salty grenades at the establishment. Along with bassist Joe Anderson and drummer Mike McClean, this singer/songwriter brings a fresh dose of earnest, heartfelt humor back into this area’s acoustic scene.
