RON BLOCK 'Walking Song'

Add To Wishlist

Block, longtime sideman with Alison Krauss' Union Station band, has a very nice record here that shows off his various talents as banjo picker, guitarist, song writer and singer. There's a nice variety of material here on this well-paced disc on which Block gets help from a number of top musicians including Dan Tyminski, Stuart Duncan, Barry Bales, Mike Compton, Jeff Taylor, Alison Krauss and others. While much of the album is gentle and introspective, there are rousing instrumental versions of DEVIL IN THE STRAWSTACK and SHORTNIN' BREAD, and an interesting treatment of WHAT WONDROUS LOVE IS THIS --done instrumentally as a duet with Jeff Taylor on accordion & pipe organ. Block shows well here as a singer on this fine album of acoustic music (with touches of contemporary Bluegrass).
