Unless you live on the West Coast, you may not be familiar with this band, but we will repeat what we have said in the past: this is an excellent group that plays a wonderful brand of contemporary Bluegrass. As on previous records, most of the material is penned by Stuart and banjoist Janet Beazley: they provide thoughtful, well written songs that still feature a good amount of variety (it’s one of the few bands we’ve heard that can sustain a full album’s worth of their own material). Ms. Beasley plays a solid banjo and Eric Uglum provides nice mandolin and lead guitar work—the two of them share the production and engineering credits on this attractively packaged 13 track disc. We would strongly suggest looking into the band’s earlier releases as well. SILVERTON, WHEN WE COME HOME, LANTERN BAY INN, THE CRIME AT QUIET DELL, THESE TEARS, I SEE GOD COMING DOWN, etc.
