Maddy-O 03:46


Recorded on the Maine coast in a tiny cottage, Warm Prickly consists of favorite country classics, Benny's weird interpretations of old-time fiddle tunes, and several new original pieces focusing on compassion towards those facing homelessness, addiction, and loneliness. A warm embrace for folks who are too often perceived as prickly people.
