The curator of the Alan Lomax archive wrote of this young Brooklyn old-timey folk trio: "Many string bands have the tunes but not the chops. Some have chops and tunes, but can't achieve lift-off, marching along politely like so many historical reenactors. But the Down Hill Strugglers hit the trifecta, pulling their bows deftly across the best numbers in the old-time songbook with more grit and style than just about any group fiddling away today." Long-time folk music fans will appreciate that they've been mentored by Peter Stampfel of the Holy Modal Rounders and John Cohen of the New Lost City Ramblers. Carrying the music of old, rural America forward with verve and creativity, they can be heard on the soundtrack of the Coen Brothers film about the Greenwich Village folk scene of the '60s "Inside Llewyn Davis" and their debut album was released by Smithsonian Folkways.
