Tennesseans, Kentuckians. Virginians. Some Tarheels. They seem to be the ones dominating national bluegrass charts. But one mighty Washington band — Spokane's Mighty Squirrel — is holding down the 38th position on national roots music charts with their new album, Sqworld, according to RootsMusicReport.com. That same album holds the number three spot on Washington's own roots music chart.
On a related note, Mighty Squirrel's master fiddler, Greg Spatz, weighed in on a bunch of local CDs this week in our Local Music Issue. Check out what he had to say about local pop, hip-hop, rock and folk acts here
