Original songs and instrumentals nestle up against blues, country, string band and Celtic classics in this eclectic but stripped down album. A genre-defying tightrope walk over Folk Music falls. "Then What's It For?" is influenced by blues, gospel, mountain music, Irish tunes and international acoustic sounds creating a sonic landscape for Chico's original music.
