LOUVAT Bros. « Sparkling tone that rocks! »
« First of all, these young men must have wonderful parents. They have obviously been guided in the right direction as both of them are real gentlemen. In addition, they are fantastic musicians. When I first met Steve and Jefferson, I was Impressed with their enthusiasm and eagerness to learn bluegrass music, they succeeded very well. It is not often we get to hear brothers play music together, and left – handed too !
Give a listen to these guys; you will not be disappointed ! »
« With this short but superb selection of instrumentals and vocals, the Louvat Brothers, Belgium ‘s best-kept bluegrass secret, make an impressive recording debut. Check out Steve’s original composition « Virginia Water », which showcases his complex and compelling banjo playing as well as his writing skills.
