The Old Fashioned #75

Darrell Scott
Michael Weintrob
Darrell Scott

Darrell Scott is a hugely important Americana artist who’s been on the bill at many a bluegrass festival without being a bluegrass artist himself per se. Now though, a bit like Robbie Fulks recently, the Nashville-based songwriter and picker has made his first self-proclaimed “string band” album, called Old Cane Back Rocker. The group, with whom he’s been touring for some time, contains Shadd Cobb on fiddle, Matt Flinner on banjo, and Bryn Davies on bass. This show we lead off with the most driving tune, “Banjo In The Holler” featuring Shadd on a fine lead vocal. We’ll feature Darrell’s leads in coming weeks. Also this week, new tracks from Tray Wellington, Balsam Range and Full Cord.
