The newest tune by the Atlanta folk/pop outfit Seven Handle Circus, "And We Danced", perfectly balances pop harmony with bluegrass melancholy.

The Atlanta folk-poppers that call themselves Seven Handle Circus are yet another piece of evidence that reveals just how versatile the bluegrass instrumental lineup can be. With a guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, bass, and drums, the group creates harmony-centric pop that grabs the ear right upon first listen, all the while maintaining a rustic quality inherent to the instruments being played.
