Ledford - writes like he’s thrown his sack onto a fair number passenger cars. His land is the “Old Weird America” Griel Marcus wrote so emotively about. Ledford
stories seldom end with a hero on the proverbial mountaintop. His narratives are typically told by the losers, those close to the edge, in the grandest sense. This latest record puts him in front of a microphone, sans accompaniment, where he pours out live-sounding interpretations of his own music, which while not your Daddy’s folk, has one foot planted firmly either side of Cripple Creek. Adios King represents Ledford’s most accomplished work, which at its peak stands shoulder to shoulder with that of modern Americana luminaries as Gillian Welch, Patty Griffin, and the like. His time oughtta come. – 9X magazine, Richmond, VA
