“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
