Dave McGrew: Fruit Tramp Ballads of the Great Northwest $12.00


"Dave McGrew stands in the circle of his acquaintance and entertains, in unity and connection. I have seen him do it in firelight by the ditches in the orchards." -Dan Duffy

"Fruit Tramp Ballads of the Great Northwest" preserves a testimony to those hardworking folks who may never experience the "American Dream". These stark compositions paint stories of a hard-ass life of fruit picking, poverty, and traveling told by a cobalt blue poet. "Tramp Ballads" sounds like a modern day musical chapter from "The Grapes of Wrath." McGrew sings from the salt of the earth. - James Calemine
