The work week is all down hill from here folks. This is the best video you will see all week. Fuck it. It’s Monday, and we all need a bit of joy in our life. I give you Nashville, TN’s Hogslop String band. This 7-piece, traditional outfit began as an impromptu square dance band back in 2009. The seven members, who originate from all over the country, quickly gained a loyal regional following. They are currently on tour with Annie Williams, whose Live & Reel session was featured in a recent post. Watch below, as Hogslop gives new meaning to the term “driving music.” This is just entirely too much fun. I believe Williams is riding shotgun as the band offers a rollicking version of “Cumberland Gap” from their 2010 debut Hogslop String Band, Vol. 1. Visit their website where, for a limited time, their two albums are available for FREE. With inspiration like this, you’ll be ditching work for a road trip by lunch time.
