Synopsis

Album Description
Sons of the Never Wrong present a different view of three part harmony on top of witty, whimsical original songs that spring from a tradition you swear you've heard, but you just don't know where or when. Comprised of Bruce Roper (vocals, guitar, accordian, banjo & keyboards), Nancy Walker (vocals, guitar and mandolin), and Sue Demel (vocals, guitar and percussion), the Sons weave a lyric and musical fabric "asking for nothing but the joy of playing, fingers picking, hands drumming and voices calling out faithfully." (Sue Demel). Featuring cover art by Nicholas Africano, Three Good Reasons is their debut CD. Sitting in on this album are mandolinist Don Stiernberg, guitarist Robert Quine (known for his work with Matthew Sweet), Bassist Mark Edelstein, percussionists Michael and Mark Cameron, guitarists Kenny Schiff and Victor Sanders, and violinists Andrae Delousier and Andrew Bird. Yang Ying of the Beijing national orchestra plays a traditional 2-stringed bowed instrument called an ER-HU.

CD Reviews

My favorite folk group!
Katherine S. Brokaw | Ann Arbor, MI | 12/14/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"i have been in love with sons ever since i saw them perform a couple years ago. i wish they had more CDs, but if your cd collection is without 3 good reasons, And consequence of speech, it is incomplete. this CD is a brilliant blend of whimsical, somewhat silly songs like "dead on the highway" and heartbreakingly beautiful ballads, " alone in the wake being my favorite."you will be Hooked on sons, i promise!"
Great On Recordings, Better Still Live
C H Hall | Northern VA USA | 09/13/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Like the prior commentator, I first saw "Sons" in person, then got their recordings. The recordings are wonderful, but DO NOT miss a chance to see them live -- they're so engaging, exciting, uplifting, that you'll thank yourself for having gone.In terms of their songwriting, I think these people have been developing the most creative acoustic music since Steve Goodman left us. I don't know why more people haven't caught on yet, but I encourage all who like good folk/acoustic music to lend "Sons" an ear. And an eye!"
Happy Music

"This is by far my favorite group of all time. They are fun, uplifting, and I have listened to this CD about a thousand times (maybe more), and never tire of it--I've owned it since 1995 and still listen to it today. I agree with an earlier reviewer. If you even like folk a little bit--SEE THEM LIVE. You won't be sorry!"
