Tennesseans, Kentuckians. Virginians. Some Tarheels. They seem to be the ones dominating national bluegrass charts. But one mighty Washington band — Spokane's Mighty Squirrel
— is holding down the 38th position on national roots music charts
with their new album, Sqworld
, according to RootsMusicReport.com. That same album holds the number three spot
on Washington's own roots music chart.
On a related note, Mighty Squirrel's master fiddler, Greg Spatz, weighed in on a bunch of local CDs this week in our Local Music Issue. Check out what he had to say about local pop, hip-hop, rock and folk acts here
