If I ever had a new aria to learn I would listen to Gedda first in order to make sure I was “doing it right.”

Like any good slumgullion stew, Plow borrows ingredients from Americana heritage music, adds its own spices, and puts the whole pot on a rolling boil. The result is a simmering musical concoction that wafts through the air and connects the listener to America’s musical past and present.
When acoustic musicians find synergy, it's special. When the result of that synergy is unexpected, with improvised twists and turns, the ride is exciting, amusing and ultimately satisfying. Plow is the result of three men finding common musical ground, then deciding to break new ground and bring their own personal and shared musical expressions to listeners.
