  • $13.50


Michael Cleveland has established himself as one of the premier fiddlers on the Bluegrass scene—now he has assembled a very fine band that justifiably has garnered some coveted IBMA awards recently. The group includes Jesse Brock (mandolin), Marshall Wilborn (bass), John Batchelor (banjo), and Todd Rakestraw, who plays guitar and whose lead singing bon this disc is excellent. Mr. Cleveland has picked out a really nice selection of appropriate songs & tunes, such as IN MY MIND TO RAMBLE, TROUBLES ROUND MY DOOR, SOLD DOWN THE RIVER, COME SPRING, NORTHERN WHITE CLOUDS and JERUSALEM RIDGE (the latter featuring just Cleveland’s fiddle and Brock’s mandolin). It all adds up to a very enjoyable album of tough, hard-edged traditional Bluegrass. More power to this fine band!
