This duo, from the state of Idaho, has produced some good CDs in the past, and some excellent songs that have been recorded by other leading artists (Valerie Smith does a great job on John Lowell's fine song SARAH HOGAN on her latest CD—see review). While they can’t be categorized as old-time, country or Bluegrass, they show influences from all of those genres as they present tasteful, relaxed performances of a nice mixture of old songs and their new originals. They use primarily mandolin & guitar or two guitars on particularly nice versions of PEG & AWL, RUDE & RAMBLING BLADE, EAST VIRGINIA BLUES, HOBO’S LULLABY and the Delmores’ WEARY DAY. Their own LAST HILL BEFORE HOME, OLD BLACK COAT and ROAD AGENT’S LAMENT are pleasant additions to a solid and enjoyable disc.
