Maine Band To Release An Album Of Very Old Songs Written By Maine Woodsmen
The Mallett Brothers Band is set to release a new album next month. The new work was originally written in the 1800's!
'The Falling of the Pine: Songs from the Maine Woods' is the next album from The Mallett Brothers Band. It's a really neat concept. What they did was put their musical spin on songs that where written in the Maine lumber camps and fishing towns in the 1800's.
They found the lyrics in a 1920's book titled 'The Minstrelsy Of Maine' by Fannie Hardy Eckstorm of Brewer Maine.
One of the songs on the album was allegedly written by a young man waiting to die after he had been crushed by a load of logs.
The album is available for pre-order here.
