We continue to be amazed by the high quality level of many of the Old-Time bands that are springing up all over the country these days. This 5-member group is from Madison County in central Virginia, and they have a terrific recording here that we’ve already played numerous times. There are 17 fine tunes—about an hour’s worth of music—played with an infectious high energy, and with consummate good taste. With two fiddles, guitar, bass, fretless banjo and banjo uke, the band at times reminds one of the playing of the Highwoods String Band, but perhaps a bit smoother. The group starts out with a great Jim Childress tune that we’ve not heard before, ROAD TO MALVERN, then presents one after another superb rendition of wonderful tunes like ROCKY MOUNTAIN GOAT, FOUR CENT COTTON, CIDER, JOSIO, RYESTRAW, OLD MOTHER LOGO, RATS GONE TO REST, CHEROKEE SHUFFLE and CHARLESTON # 2. This is excellent music that should delight any old time fan (as well as others, too)
