    Shake That Little Foot String Band –
    Genre: Bluegrass, Folk, Country

    As far as I can tell, the artists on this album are out of Liverpool England and originally played under the name of Tom Joad. Eventually they lashed onto Shake That Little Foot as the name of both the album and this lively group of musicians. This Creative Commons licensed music fest consists of American folk tunes and Celtic songs, all of them played precisely and joyously. There is much to love here. If you are in a dancing mood, “Bill Cheatum” or “Mississippi Swayer” will get you going. “Flop Eared Mule” will make you laugh and “Sally Ann” has a rare vocal heralding a backwoods courtship. Definitely grab this one!

    The album is available in MP3, Ogg Vorbis, or FLAC format.
