The Old Fashioned #83

Asheville, NC is one of the most important hubs for bluegrass and mountain music in the country, and Songs From The Road Band are among the favorite bands hailing from the area. Seems like only yesterday they were fiddling with early lineups and a bold new sound. But now they’ve released eight albums! Where did the time go? The lifers in the band include mandolinist Mark Schimick and bass player Charles Humprhries III, who is a two-time IBMA songwriter of the year nominee. They released the album Pay Your Dues earlier this year, but we’ve got their new single “Where Lonely Lives.” Also new this week, Carly Arrowood’s lovely “Moondancer,” and a cool one from Wilson Banjo Co. called “Nightbird.” Our throwback tracks include music from Bill Harrell and the Virginians, plus a stone classic by Norman Blake and Tony Rice.
