Huzzah! touches all the folk music bases, sounding Ragtimey on “Tear It Down Rag,” Jug Bandy on “Volvo Girl,” Bluegrassy on “Hard Times at My Door,” and Woody Guthrie on “Talkin’ F-Word Blues.” The field full of musicians on Huzzah! (including local Bluegrass all stars, Katie Laur and Ed Cunningham) gives the album a chance to cheer in so many different voices. One minute, it’ll round third and head for home with “Old Man Joe,” while the next minute it’ll serenely sail along the banks with “Ohio River Waltz.” It’ll poke fun at politics on “First Street Fell,” and then pray peacefully on “Fare Thee Well.” Typewriters, Watering Cans, and Washboards strike up with the rest of the band’s fiddles, guitars, banjos, basses, and harmonicas, making Huzzah! the most tossed around sound Jake Speed & the Freddies have struck so far.
