Hear Purgatory Hill on CBG.UK Radio...!
Thanks to Brian, Tony, and everyone who put together the Chicago CBG Fest, everyone who played (you were amazing!) and everyone who came!!! So glad Rev. Nix made the trip.. Just a great time. Already looking forward to 2013!
Thanks for the comments etc! (pat here) We haven't been on this page much lately - busy with too many things - but you'll probably see more of us starting now, because the new album is being duplicated as we speak and there's even a VINYL being pressed (10" - 4 songs), so we'll be coming up for air & hawking our wares as these shipments arrive, even touring a little.. Much looking forward to the Cigar Box guitar fest coming up in November, just north of Chicago, not too far away from home... Sending love and affection to all our fellow citizens of CigarBoxNation! Get down and dirty now. See you soon.. xo,p
@steven beck: don't know when we'll be down there again. Sorry :(
i miss Austin though.
The bass string is an E (one octave below a guitar low E)
The high strings are E-B-E.
so, three of the strings are 3 octaves of E
and there's a B in there.
Bonehead simple. :)
OK, a question, How is the Purgatory Hill Harp tuned?
When will you be back in Texas!? Just missed you at Dan Electro's Guitar Bar. I'm sick about it!
Purgatory Hill will be Headlining the first Chicago Cigar Box Guitar Festival on Nov 10 2012 go here for more info http://rootsriot.com/
AMAZING SOUND! please let us know when you'll be anywhere in Texas....
