Curtis McPeake “The View From McPeake” (Swift River Music, 2000)

(Produced by Andy May)

A swell set of bluegrass instrumentals, featuring lead banjo by veteran picker Curtis McPeake, known for his ’60s session work with the likes of George Jones, Melba Montgomery, Wilma Lee & Stoney Cooper, Bill Monroe and for his years as a member of Danny Davis’s Nashville Brass. Joining him are fiddler Aubrey Haynie, David Harvey on mandolin, Dennis Crouch on bass and Charlie Cushman guitar. …Plenty of fine work from McPeake on the 5-string banjo… A nice showcase for his work! – Slipcue
