about

"Rose Hill" was recorded in Bentonia, Mississippi at the famed Blue Front Cafe under the watchful eye of the establishment's owner, Jimmy "Duck" Holmes. The cinderblock building provides the perfect backdrop for this album of haunting and somber tunes and rhythmic and caterwauling stompers. From the driving fingerpicking of the instrumental title track to the swampy Rot Gut Devil and the reflective Good as Good May Be, Munson's original tracks establish his compelling and unmistakable voice. Munson also honors the music's roots with covers of Skip James' Illinois Blues and Fred McDowell's Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning. Jimmy "Duck" Holmes makes multiple guest appearances both on harmonica and vocals on Jack Ain't Had No Water and Broke and Hungry. Additionally, esteemed Mississippi Blueswoman Libby Rae Watson is featured on musical saw on Big Black and Broke and Hungry. "Rose Hill" follows the Mississippi River from Munson's Minnesota roots down to the birthplace of country blues.
