The Tillers – Hand on the Plow

  • August 26, 2013

Cincinnati based Americana trio The Tillers dwell near both Kentucky hill country and Appalachian coal country – an area rich with tradition, music and lore that proved influential on a band known for good spirited, driving old-time music featuring hollering, toe taps and boot stomps and bold delivery. The Tiller’s fifth and latest album, Hand on the Plow, is another rousing 11 track set of high-energy Americana that features a guest appearance from the Legendary Shack Shaker’s Col. JD Wilkes on harmonica. A few album highlights include: the murder ballad “I Gotta Move”; “Treehouse” with its playful fiddles; and opener “Old West Side.” Hand on the Plow is a solid album that’s a whole lot of fun while also paying tribute to its musical forefathers with a fresh twist. – Written by JFelton
