Thunder’s Mouth Wins Best Blues Album 2008
Best Blues Album 2008: Scott Ainslie wins hands-down for his work on Thunder’s Mouth. He’s based in Brattleboro and hasn’t gotten much play in this part of the state, but he’s as good as it gets in the acoustic blues field. There’s a mix of songs from Son House to Robert Johnson, Tom Waits, and his own compositions. Ainslie shows that even in rural Vermont we can sing the blues and make it sound authentic.
