Dave Freeman in “County Sales Newsletter”: “The View From McPeake” by Curtis McPeake

It’s been quite a while since we have heard from McPeake, the Nashville-based banjo player who was good enough to have filled in for Earl Scruggs on more than one occasion. It is a real pleasure to hear him here “playing it straight” and backed up by excellent Bluegrass musicians. Those include Aubrey Haynie on fiddle, Dave Harvey on mandolin & Charlie Cushman on guitar, and the 13 good tunes feature a fine mix of standards and several neat originals. Thanks to producer Andy May for doing this up right-it should bring McPeake some of the credit he deserves as one of the top Scruggs-style banjo pickers for over 40 years now. —  Dave Freeman, County Sales Newsletter  (2000)
