Hangtown Dancehall: A Tale of the California Gold Rush

By Eric Brace and Karl Straub, featuring performances by Kelly Willis, Tim O'Brien, Darrell Scott, Jason Ringenberg, John Wesley Harding, and Andrea Zonn.

Hangtown Dancehall is the story of two young lovers, Betsy and Ike, who leave their Missouri home for California during the Gold Rush. Eric first met the two characters in a folk song that he heard in his childhood in Placerville, California, the epicenter of the Gold Rush, known in the 1850s as Hangtown. That song, "Sweet Betsy From Pike,"  tells the story of Betsy and Ike's trek by wagon train across the continent. The song's final verses tell of their arrival in Hangtown but Eric decided that though that's the end of the song, it wasn't the end of the tale. With Hangtown Dancehall, Eric and Karl tell the rest of Betsy and Ike's story.

CD packaging includes lyrics and narrative in a 24-page booklet, featuring the art of Julie Sola.

Last Train Home: True North


A mounful, country-tinged aching pervades much of Last Train Home's second album. You can hear it even when the band kicks things into high gear, as it does on such tracks as Eric Brace's own "Louisiana" and Buck Owens' "Heartbreak Mountain". Most of the album, though, unfolds unhurriedly, highlighting the richly layered texture of the band's country-rock and the soulful melancholy at the heart of their songs and in the voice of singer-guitarist Eric Brace.

"Last Train Home shows it has the goods to stick around for a good long while..." -The Journal Newspapers

Last Train Home: Last Train Home


"Last Train Home's eponymous debut album resonates with love songs, more often than not the sad, haunting and unresolved kind. It's the stuff of great country music, of course, but [the band is] careful not to let unruly honky-tonk romps get in the way of tortured or torchy heartache." -Washington Post


Last Train Home: Tributaries EP


"You can tell a lot about a group you haven't heard sometimes by the songs they cover.  This is one of those instances because their studio albums are all first-rate." - Village Records

This modest offering is a collection of songs that we've contributed over the years to various tribute and compilation CDs. These are songs that have gotten under our skins one way or another, and we're happy to have this chance to share them with you.
