Folk Phenomena: Steamchicken always come across as a force of nature and there is something primal that is stirred by their sounds. We strongly recommend for folkies, non-folkies and for anyone who doubts that live music can get you moving in your heart and in your feet because these chickens sure can fly!
Hot Music Live: Steamchicken don't do straightforward... Ella Fitzgerald's hectic bebop When I Get Low I Get High gets a workover that brings in influences from electro-swing to Balkan street band, Oh Mary Don't You Weep gets a reggae beat complete with a gorgeous ethereal horn riff straight out of Kingston.
