Luther Wright & the Wrongs - Guitar Pickin’ Martyrs
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Luther Wright & the Wrongs - Guitar Pickin’ MartyrsEx-members of Weeping Tile, the Kingston, Ont. band that spawned the wondrous Sarah Harmer, LW &TW defied the odds and made a damn good bluegrass version of Pink Floyd’s The Wall. Although Rebuilding the Wall was gimmick-free, the group’s latest is not without a little yodeling and a heap o’ hayseed besides, as evident on “Wish Me Well” and “Broken Heart,” a hurtin’ song punctuated heavily with expletives. And then there’s Wright’s duet with Harmer on “Milk & Honey,” a ballad of tender beauty.
