Batteau Rouge

Batteau Rouge is trade music...a vintage organic sound muddled with roots ingredients from New Orleans to New York City and distilled in the Shenandoah valley. It's rails and river music. Raw original tunes and crooked b-side covers roughed in with Appalachian rhythms and a touch of the high and lonesome. It's gritty but sweet and no matter where you play it, it's Virginia porch music.

Batteau Rouge is Amy Bowden (fiddle, ukulele, and vocals); David French (guitar, harmonica, and vocals); Lawton Smith (bass guitar, vocals); Tom Garstang (guitar, banjo, and vocals).
