GYPSY CARAVAN is 11 new songs of rock, blues and acoustic blues. It’s full of rich harmonies and Jon’s acrobatic and soul-infused guitar work. Better still, it's the kind of storytelling that reaches hearts, touches souls.
“This is an excellent record—intense, soulful, and above all, it has its roots in the Blues reminiscent of my Barefoot Servant days. Making GYPSY was electric and so cool on multiple levels, and an opportunity to finally record with two of my best friends!”
“This record is a mix of styles that has its roots from the same tree. Allen and I share a love of storytelling in our acoustic performances, and the record is a natural and honest progression from where I started. Of course recording with Jon was like being at Woodstock in ‘69. Jon kept saying to me ‘You can leave if you want to, we’re just jamming.’ Then he played the Star Spangled Banner (laughs)! Working with these guys went down sweet and easy. Like a piece of cherry pie at an all-night truck stop diner.” Indeed
“What do you get when three Boston/New England veteran singer/ songwriter/musicians and performers get together and make a great big beautiful noise?” GYPSY CARAVAN, stories from the road and beyond. I’ve toured as a solo musician for many years since The Estes Boys. In that time you learn things, see things, experience people and life in ways that make you grow as a writer.”
Jon Butcher, Sal Baglio & Allen Estes. Three veteran musicians and familiar names from the Boston music scene. Their debut album, GYPSY CARAVAN is 11 new electric and acoustic stories steeped in the blues and Americana.
“We’re blue collar guys from working class families. We grew up on the sound of rock radio and the promise of an electric guitar. “
GYPSY CARAVAN covers a lot of ground, just as CS&N's debut album did back in the day.“ The album is the product of three long time friends who came together on a travelogue of blues, roots and more. And it rocks!”
Yes it does.
