Reviews - Uncouth Pilgrims

Having a stable of superb pickers in the studio makes it easy for these musical stories to hit home with listeners. Roger Ray’s pedal steel cries here, Gary Grammer’s harmonica soars there, and Ginny Mac’s accordion, Darrin Kobetich’s mandolin, and Austin Smith’s fiddle conjure up a marriage of down-home country and blues with Old World flavor....But this is McInroe’s show, and the worldly, philosophical wanderer and songsmith delivers one of his best efforts.”

Fort Worth Weekly

Uncouth Pilgrims is a sophisticated concept album filtered through experiences and musical influences. Country, folk and dirty old blues are all used to express love, fear and loathing.”

Dallas Observer

McInroe wears the late nights and long drives in every note he plays - the harmonica fluttering through Tonight feels like the ache of a hangover, or perhaps the violent glare of lights flicked on at last call - and that lived-in quality elevates these songs above straightforward country or folk sides.”

Fort Worth Star-Telegram

McInroe has a voice not unlike a young Kristofferson and he can write a quality song just like the bearded one did back in his Glory Days; have a listen to Give Me The Rain and/or Verona to hear timeless and beautiful songs that could come from Kris’s pen; but didn’t.”
