Bluegrass Unlimited on McPeake & May – “The Good Things”

“McPeake logged seventy-plus years in the music business…. His credentials are certainly well-established and his love for the music is evident on this recording. May has played with McPeake over twenty years and is a veteran singer/songwriter and champion guitarist. Together, McPeake and May have collaborated to present their versions of songs and arrangements they both love. The tracks were recorded …just two months before McPeake’s 90th birthday. (Well done fellows!) …Included here are “Reuben’s Train,” “My Home’s Across The Blue Ridge Mountains,” and “Leather Britches,” among others…. “Grandpa’s Mule” is the only selection that isn’t an old chestnut. Written by Andy’s wife, Lauren, the song is about her Alabama grandfather’s infamous mule, Betsy… You’ll hear a little of “Flop-Eared Mule” in this one, which should probably bring a smile to your face. Aubrey Haynie adds fiddle work and Tim Dishman is on bass and harmony vocals. As the CD jacket indicates: ‘Heckuva good time!'”- BW, Bluegrass Unlimited

The Good Things-McPeake & May

Bob Piekiel on McPeake & May, “The Good Things”

The CD is done entirely with a four-piece band–Curtis on banjo, Andy May on guitar & vocals, Aubrey Haynie on fiddle, and Tim Dishman​ on bass.The result is a performance with lots of refreshing “breathing space” in each song, with each instrument tastefully placed in the context of the whole selection…. It’s one of those albums you can listen to over and over and hear something a little different each time. Old or young, veteran or novice, all will enjoy this treasure. –Bob Piekiel, in Banjo Newsletter
