Tale in the Telling

Douglas Detrick’s Tale in the Telling is a new band that digs deeply into the soils of America’s musical past, looking for old roots that still grow new fruits. With a core trio of guitarist Mike Gamble and drummer Barra Brown, we reinvent songs from the most diverse of sources—fiddle tunes, sea chantys, gospel, blues, ballads, work and play songs—to see what meaning they have for today’s audience.
