IIIrd Tyme Out
One of the best bands in bluegrass, IIIrd Tyme Out, delivers again. With material from a variety of writers, including three songs by Russell Moore and an instrumental by band-mate and ace mandolist Wayne Benson, they offer a variety of songs. Edgar Loudermilk now plays bass while Justin Haynes continues on fiddle and long-time member Steve Dilling is on banjo.

Footprints: A IIIrd Tyme Out Collection
Arguably one of the premier bluegrass bands from 1991 to the present, IIIrd Tyme Out has a huge fan base and they consistently put out great recordings and great performances. The recent departure of founding member Ray Deaton makes this retrospective release even more interesting.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile takes her chances on feeling "Blue"
During a rare moment sitting at the piano and appropriately dressed in blue, Brandi Carlile paraphrased a memorable Joni Mitchell quote.

Concert Review: The Head and the Heart go beyond the nah nahs
"Nah nah," "la la" and "Wee oh" populated a number of songs from The Head and the Heart.
Yes, the Seattle-based band does pen a good amount of sing-along songs that were clearly designed that way. And while that style can certainly engage and energize a crowd, there was more to that from the sextet.... »»»
