Curtis Eller "Wirewalkers and Assassins" (2008)

In all honesty, I had totally forgotten about this record.  I can immediately tell why I have it -- history, banjos, a purported modern folk slant on songwriting.  Unfortunately,  the songs are more rock songs with some banjo (I see you Mr Mumford) than songs from the folk tradition.  While the subject matter is generally historical, it's more often true in a third hand post-Dylan sense of wandering jumble of historical figures.
