"Whiskey-soaked deep woods field holler for the modern age. Step up to the counter and get your Swamp Candy. It's raw & rockin'. It's dark & dirty. And you don't want it any other way. Delicious. Great record."

In addition to performing selected tracks from the new album, the duo will screen Sugar Farm Production's documentary of the making of the album, which captures the band recoding on the grounds of Fox Hill Farm and the sixth oldest estate house in Maryland, Holly Hill, with various contributing artists.
"The Holly Hill session ended with a huge garden party with every one dressed in 1920's style," says Ruben Dobbs, guitar and vocals. "We are trying to evolve American Music while keeping the roots intact."
Swampcandy is an internationally acclaimed, down-and-dirty duo known for producing foot-stomping blues roots music infused with gypsy and old country influences. Their cross-genre sets create an eclectic mix of honestly-crafted songs that take listeners on a journey of raw emotion and refined sensation —a stimulating blend of percussive finger-style resonator slide guitar and roaring vocals by Ruben Dobbs, along with the thumping kick drum and wild upright bass stylings of Joey Mitchell.
