“Bluegrass Unlimited:” “The View From McPeake” by Curtis McPeake

Curtis McPeake‘s name is spoken with something very much like reverence in the nationwide banjo community. …He is …an expert picker, as this fine instrumental album makes plain…. He is joined on this record by guitarist Charlie Cushman, fiddler Aubrey Haynie, mandolinist Dave Harvey and bassist Dennis Crouch, all together they play a winning assortment traditional and original banjo showcase tunes.

McPeake’s original compositions are some of the best things on this album-the aptly titled “Fire In The Furnace” and “Leap Frog” are both classic pieces of 1950s-style instrumental bluegrass, while “Long Way Home” is a slightly more complex and slightly less zippy composition.

Highly recommended.   –RA, Bluegrass Unlimited

Blackberry Jam - CD cover

Andy May – Blackberry Jam

Americana pioneer Andy May combines acoustic/alternative country, bluegrass, folk, blues and rock influences with his trademark optimism touched with humor. Blackberry Jam also features Andy’s clean, lively production and some of Nashville’s best players.

…I thoroughly enjoyed this fine CD.  The music is all original, well written, and fresh. Andy’s vocals are clear and clean and he is an excellent guitar player as well. One cut, “Little Bird,” I especially enjoyed features Andy playing some fine finger-style guitar with a banjo-like roll. — JP, Bluegrass Now [more]
