Hamilton (formerly of Kitchener) duo, The Vaudevillian continue with their fabulous, raw pre-war blues sound on Salty Dog, their current album. Banjos, kazoos and washboards revel with fiddles, accordions and ukes with great abandon.
The Hamilton Music Award Nominated recording is loaded with good time energy and you can't help but feel the ethereal spirit of punk in the mix. The six stunning originals and three marvelous covers take you to the ancient bayous!
Brendan J Stephens and Willow Walker are the two main revelers in the Vaudevillian. On this album, they're joined by Minnie Hart and Buck Thompson of Ever Lovin' Jug Band as well as Jojo Worthington.
So pick up your copy at their dynamic live shows or visit the Crash Landing Store in Hamilton. It can also be downloaded using Bandcamp Page.

Some albums escape our radar, so occasionally we'll be catching up with some mini-reviews!
Vaudevillian's 2013 release Bourbon and Basements is a more stripped down affair but the rawness of it works extremely well. Brendan's urgent vocals give everything such amazing power. The album can be loaded through Bandcamp as well.
