kory quinn's new album 'at the end of the bar' is classic portland, oregon roots music/folk rock. the impression begins with the cover, picturing the interior of the laurelthirst public house, a well known little bar in southeast portland where just about every day you can hear quality, live americana, bluegrass, blues and jazz from afternoon til late in a great atmosphere while slammin' a few beers and dancing.
the production for the solid, classicist tunes on 'at the end of the bar' varies from mounrful steel guitar tinged country weepers to up-tempo fiddle sawing, harmonizing boot-scooters. the cajun sound is represented by the joyful 'chaille-au-pied'. many of the players on the album are familiar faces in the scene of working portland musicians of the rootsy persuasion.
