Galyean was born & raised in the heart of Bluegrass country --actually not very far from the fine old time fiddler and banjo picker Fred Cockerham in Low Gap, North Carolina, But it was from his dad that Mickey eventually learned his Bluegrass skills, and started his own band. A neat song from a fine Bluegrass writer Rick Pardue puts it all down nicely in the album's lead song, MY DADDY'S GRASS. Galyean's dad was in fact the late Cullen Galyean, one of the best of the first and second wave of top-notch 5-string banjo pickers who followed closely in the pursuit of all things Scruggs at a time when the banjo was just getting popular again (thanks to Scruggs). On this new and very nicely done CD, Mickey and his band have a good selection of songs including BROTHER PAUL, HOME WITH THE BLUES, ONE LOAF OF BREAD, IT'S A COLD, COLD WORLD, CHARMING BETSY and WE'LL BE SWEETHEARTS IN HEAVEN. This is good solid traditional Bluegrass !
