The Lonesome Stars actually keep fine company. Rosavelt bandleader Chris Allen sings and plays guitar in the down-home trio, heading up an all-star cast of Cleveland musicians gone cowboy, including bluesman Austin "Walkin' Cane" Charanghat and standup bassist Tom Prebish (Boys From County Hell). In backwoods ballads and bluegrass jams, the three pay homage to Billie Holiday, John Hardy, and the ghosts of lovers past.
