For decades, Muscle Shoals has been synonymous with great music, and Winston Ramble proves the Shoals isn’t just a hotbed of quality studio work. This group’s regular visits to Mobile have made it a favorite with locals.
Winston Ramble has crafted a backwoods, jam-filled style — a skillful mix of roots rock, folk and bluegrass — that’s a perfect reflection of the environment that nurtured and shaped this quintet.
Winston Ramble’s Brickyard audience will witness a live performance of cuts from the group’s self-titled full-length debut. This collection of tunes is a blast of organic rock mixed with eclectic progressive bluegrass in the style of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman. Winston Ramble delivers smooth, dirt-road acoustic grooves in “Don’t Go Away” and “Free State of Mind” and counters with rollicking trips such as “Left Behind” and “Cold, Cold Heart.”
