The alter-ego of Albany songsmith John Pipino, Henry’s Rifle is pure fire ‘n’ brimstone country-blues. With a battered six-string banjo, a scorched holler and a pair of boots stomping on an old suitcase, Henry’s Rifle conjures up heaven, hell and all the American ghosts haunting the barrooms and plowfields in between. This is real roots music in all its raucous, heartbreaking glory. The man also makes a mean plate of pulled pork. For fans of Hank Williams, Possessed by Paul James, Chuck Ragan and the Buffalo Bills.
