Stripmall Ballads and The Duhks

I am on my way to tonight's banjo-filled show at Iota, near the Clarendon Metro. I hope to be able to post something worthwhile about the show tomorrow. The Stripmall Ballads have two new releases coming out in July both of which I am eagerly awaiting. I have less info on The Duhks, but heard their version of the Camptown Races song something like 4 years ago on NPR's Song of the Day, and it has played every now and then in my head since.

I must admit that I was thoroughly impressed with The Duhks. I had seen Stripmall Ballads play a couple times before, so it wasn't really a gamble as I knew that one of the two would be good, if not great. The Duhks were really surprising. More on that later.

I remember the song from the same place, but had long since lost the name of the band.
