New Release: Slim Forsythe’s “The Ballad of Punxsutawney Phil” · Out Now on 7″ Single & Digi

Just in time for Groundhog Day, Get Hip Folk Series presents a double helping of Allegheny Co. Americana, courtesy of inimitable Steel City storyteller, Slim Forsythe–with a little help from Pittsburgh country crooner Molly Alphabet!

A-side, “The Ballad of Punxsutawney Phil,” is an energetic ode to Central Pennsylvania’s favorite prognosticating rodent. On the flipside, you’ll find “Down on My Knees at Nied’s Hotel Again,” a twangy, soulful plea to one of Slim’s favorite Pittsburgh haunts, featuring the vocal talents of one Miss Molly Alphabet. Wanna know more? We’ll let ol’ Slim tell you about it in his own words!

“Punxsy Phil” is available now on Groundhog Grey 7-inch color vinyl (limited to 500 copies) and digital download.
