More Timeless Bluegrass

Through The Window of a Train (Rounder Records)
Blue Highway

One of the most influential groups in bluegrass, fuses tradition with progress to create a timeless style. The project is an enjoyable showcase for instrumental virtuosity, top notch vocals and songwriting talent.

Members include Tim Stafford (guitar, vocals), Wayne Taylor (lead vocals, bass), Shawn Lane (tenor vocals, guitar, mandolin, fiddle), Rob Ickes (Dobro, Scheerhorn acoustic slide guitar) and Jason Burleson (banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass vocals). According to Ricky Skaggs, "Blue Highway is writing their own history in bluegrass: fresh, but as old as the hills."

The band's eighth release was self-produced and features 12 songs, all written or co-written by members. Some of my favorite selections are "The Life of a Traveling Man," Blues on Blues," "V-Bottom Boat" and Just Another Gravel in the Road."
