"Greg Cahill – Special Consensus,"

„L.BOW GREASE is the Germany-based duo Dave Jackson and Guntmar Feuerstein. Their two recordings, “Pickin’ On The Porch” and “Greased Lightning,” combine their musical talents singing and playing numerous acoustic instruments with their very clever and amusing song writing. They do include a few more serious and tender selections in their sets to offer a well-balanced and very entertaining presentation. The obvious joy they find in sharing their music is quite contagious, evidenced by the smiling faces of their audiences throughout their performances“.

Rienk Janssen (Strictly Country Magazine, EWOB):

“With much pleasure I have been listening to L.Bow Grease's new album. They call their music 'transatlantic folk', and it has many elements that such a description implies, but more than anything, they make their own music. The fact that I did not know any of the songs before, is no guarantee that they have written them all by themselves, but I suspect they did, judging from the conviction that shines through the strong singing and very good melodic and rhythmic playing.

L.Bow Grease brings a great diversity in moods and styles, very lively and entertaining (just like their live shows...).”

transatlantic folk

After three CDs and five years of travelling around the stages of Germany and Europe, L.BOW GREASE has become a household name on the folk scene. Appropriately, they call their music “transatlantic folk”, as they wander lightly through the most different styles, while remaining firmly rooted in American and Celtic Roots. They are fresh, thoughtful and they play with virtuosity and a healthy dose of British humour, always looking for new limits.

Dave Jackson (vocals, guitar, mandolin) wrote, among other things, the world hit “Blame it on the Boogie“ for Michael Jackson. Guntmar Feuerstein wrote and sang his way into the German charts wit the 80’s pop band “Strandjungs“. Together with Alexandra Krings (bass, vocals) and George Kaye (fiddle, vocals) they produce a stage sound that is powerful and compact and really rocks!

Their first two CDs “Pickin’ on the porch“ (2005) and “Greased Lightning“ (2007) are packed full like a trunk ready for a long trip to a lonely island. Cracking bluegrass numbers, sentimental love songs, tongue-in-cheek music hall numbers, old time tunes and moving folk songs.

Their third CD, “Let’s call it Home“ (ruhrfolk 4005), has been released in 2009, on which, alongside the trusted regular line-up, numerous guest musicians can be heard such as Nils Tuxen (Texas Lightning), Andrew Cadie (Broom Bezzums), Chris Hall und Hartmut Hegewald (Cajun Roosters), as well Matthias Malcher and Ulli Sieker (Looping Brothers).

L.BOW GREASE are “back to the roots“, and they give each of their songs convincing authenticity with their seemingly effortless virtuosity and their fantastic voices.
