Although we wouldn't expect to find them all in one place, we know all of these artists from previous records, and they have combined their talents here on this very enjoyable and well put-together new album. Mr. Bright is a good old time fiddler from Lookout Mountain, Tenn., and Bill Evans is an excellent 5-string banjo picker who is as much at home with old-time music as with Bluegrass. The two are joined here by Norman and Nancy Blake on guitar and cello, respectively. Here is a fact we didn't know: Norman Blake and Fletcher Bright played together in a Bluegrass band some 60 years ago (!) The group was the Dixieland Drifters and Norman played the dobro (!) The current CD contains an impressive bunch of great tunes, all played with skill and good taste; there are 16 old tunes that include KENNEDY RAG, GLORY IN THE MEETING HOUSE, BRILLIANCY, CLUCK OLD HEN, SNOWBIRD IN THE ASHBANK, OLD EBENEZER SCROOGE, SUGAR TREE STOMP, HANNAH IN THE SPRINGHOUSE, and ELZIC'S FAREWELL. A fine disc.
