Richard Gsottschneider – Somewhere in Baltimore

rgsotts_baltimore.jpgRichard Gsottschneider is a folk/Americana artist based in New Hampshire. The songs seem influenced by legends such as Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Johnny Cash. The lyrics tell stories — stories that are vivid and take you everywhere from the inner city to the bayous of Louisiana.

The CD is based on folk and has lots of acoustic guitar, but Gsottschneider brings in guests that contribute piano, accordion, harmonica, banjo and fiddle on select songs. The result in an exceptionally strong CD that would interest not only traditional folk music fans, but also Americana and old school country lovers as well. This might not be a CD that today’s major labels would embrace, but for fans of well written, well recorded songs in this genre, you will enjoy every moment you spend with Richard and his outstanding musical guests.
