Sweet Loam is mandolinist Joe Walsh's second solo record, and is the product of several years worth of composing, playing, gigging and traveling within the greater bluegrass and folk community. Featuring some of the finest acoustic musicians found anywhere, including the Gibson Brothers (with whom Joe plays mandolin full time) and Darol Anger, the record is an eleven course musical menu of tastefulness. Made up of new tunes composed for the session, songs reimagined for this setting, and all around inspired playing, Sweet Loam is an exceptionally listenable record.
