"Demonstrating a respect for tradition, Last Fair Deal presents a creative
mix of enlightened acoustic music drawn from tried-and-true catalogs
complemented by well-crafted original songs." ---Stephanie P. Ledgin, author, Homegrown Music
Last Fair Deal redraws the map of American roots music with fluid energy and creativity. Their latest CD, True Tales, serves up twelve original and three re-grooved, traditional tunes. LFD's live performances, with stellar vocals and unique acoustic synergy, will captivate any audience.
Last Fair Deal has an eclectic repertoire drawing on old-time string-band, bluegrass, swing, and popular music. The band's live performances feature originals from True Tales and their previous three albums. They also put their own spin on John Hartford, Hank Williams, Dan Hicks, Lennon/McCartney, John Hiatt, Nat King Cole, and Bob Dylan.
"...instrumental prowess, impressive vocals...a blend of genres
bringing something truly unique to the acoustic roots scene." - Farmington Valley Post
The trio's current lineup features Paul Howard on vocals and guitar; Tom Hagymasi on vocals, fiddle, bouzouki and accordian; and Phil Zimmerman on vocals, mandolin, and banjo and autoharp.
"The playing is first rate, the vocals strong and clear, and the
original material is every bit as good as anything on the radio." - Litchfield County Times
