"Where Were You"

Rootsy trio The Schomberg Fair mash up country, folk, blues, gospel and bluegrass in their sound, adding a fiery punkish intensity that has elicited comparisons to the late great Gun Club. Current local reference points would include Elliott Brood and Sunparlour Players. A new full-length, I Won't Be Afraid, comes out on July 8, and they prime the pump with a compelling and dynamic new single, "Where Were You". A previous full-length and EPs Providence and Mercy had the critics raving. The band has just announced they'll go on "indefinite hiatus" after the album, but they'll clearly go out with a bang.
