The Nashville string band The Howlin’ Brothers ” Jared Green, Ian Craft and Ben Plasse ” got its name from a classical-guitar teacher in Ithaca, N.Y. There, the group was known for its lively performances of old-time and bluegrass music around campfires. Shortly thereafter, they headed to Music City to make a home playing clubs and honky tonks in the area.
Now in its ninth year, the band is out with a new album, ‘Trouble’ ” its second produced by The Raconteurs’ Brendan Benson. They stopped Folk Alley to play a few tunes from the album.
