From the opening country fiddle, you are immersed in a contemporary country rock CD that is the debut of Co Waterford band, Mendocino. What a beautiful name, a sense of romance and a soulful journey and a memory of the 70’s with The McGarrigle sister and Talk This CD, all ten tracks, called The Steep Ravine is deeply rooted in American contemporary country rock, with touches of Neil Young, without the craziness of the autobiographical scope. Mendocino is the brainchild of Hugh O’Carroll who fiddled with Hank Halfhead and The Rambling Turkeys and The Glee Club.
