Guitarist Steve Haskin has lived near the Mississippi since moving to the Twin Cities in 1980. Steve has hiked the banks of the river from Minneapolis to Hastings and those walks inspired the music on his latest recording, Mississippi Goin' By. Steve's first CD Boundary Waters, inspired by the northern wilderness was soft and pastoral, but for a recording about the great river, Steve wanted a different sound.

"The Mississippi, for me, means history. I wanted to write music that sounded like it came from the past, so I chose my old friends Clint Hoover on the harmonica and Mark Briere on the mandolin. I think the music accomplishes my goal of honoring the river I so love."

Minnesota Monthly
 
Each song is a wonderful excursion into the inner space created by strings on fine wood and the soft wail of an old harp.
Blues Revue
 
Steve Haskin's guitar pieces really do evoke the sense of an afternoon on the banks of the Big Muddy, with subtle references to the many musics that that border the Mississippi.
Dirty Linen
 
Just one listen makes it easy to imagine the bright and breezy summer days that must have inspired it. Its an album that belongs on a summer vacation -- pack it with your fishing rod and your cooler full of cold ones.
