BIG COUNTRY BLUEGRASS 'Let Them Know I'm From Virginia' REB-1862-CD

Add To Wishlist

Led by the husband & wife team of Tommy and Teresa Sells, this excellent band is another product of the rich musical tradition found in Southwestern Virginia. While they do not travel extensively (in order to hold down other jobs and professions), they are this year celebrating 30 years as a band. They have a history of finding good songs from the past, and perform them in a dynamic manner, taking advantage of Teresa's distinctive high voice. A nice feature here is a listing of many of the other artists who have been members of this band over the years --these include Udell McPeak, Jeff Michael, Jimmy Trivette, Don Rigsby, Billy Hawks, Johnny Williams, Lynwood Lunsford and the late James King. Currently the lead singer with the group is Eddie Gill, who does an excellent job on the vocals. Two of the dozen songs here were penned by Tom T. Hall and the late Dixie Hall --their songs always seem like naturals for the Big Country style and sound. And the group has revitalized YOUR SWEET LOVING MAN --a song from the 1950s that was popularized by the regional duet Bill and Mary Reid. IF I EVER GET HOME, DETROIT BLUES, THE OLD CROOKED TRAIL, FLOWERS ON DADDY'S GRAVE, ME AND BECKY, YES I SEE GOD, BURN THE BARN, etc.
