RIP Boogie Brown

Boogie by WJAYGypsy Farm mourns the passing of it’s executive producer on July 15th due to a hit and run on the Nancy Hart parkway.  Known far and wide by many for 10+ years, we are honored to have been blessed with the good fortune of crossing paths with one BOOGIE BROWN, aka ‘The Boog” and hold hope that our spirits be tangled again.

“When ole Boog died, he died so hard he shook the ground in my backyard”

Our friendly fellow stringer stranger, Grandpa Egg  (Jeb Morris) has been busy relocating from Nashville to Philadelphia and some how, has still managed to track a sophomore release titled “Praying Mantis”

Grandpa released the following statement : “These recordings focus on a cast of characters who live in a meadow across the road from the house where I grew up.  They include, but are not limited to: a girl named Sally, a bluebird named Hank, a daisy called Daisy, an Earthworm Wally, a Christopher Cricket, and a praying mantis named Pellapetisimo.”

Produced by Morris’ brother, Bart.

We highly encourage that you visit EGG’s website to keep updated and buy/stream the album from start to finish via the link below:
