Discovery: The Foster Family Band

Clever Man is a new song from American folk group The Foster Family Band, featuring a traditional folk style that sounds almost European in essence.

By Jane Howkins

It’s an instrumental piece, with the group describing the genre as being ‘desert folk’ – there’s something of an eerie feel to the song, and we feel that this term is surprisingly apt here. The tempo of the song changes throughout, with the change in dynamics keeping listeners on their toes – this also makes it a great piece to dance to in the right setting.
