Live at the Down Home 20th Anniversary Concert CD review - Live at the Down Home 20th Anniversary Concert
Lou Reid knows bluegrass. His professional career began with Doyle Lawson, then he played with Ricky Skaggs and later the Seldom Scene, went to the country side with Vince Gill and Vern Gosdin (both with bluegrass in their resumes). He started Carolina with friend Terry Baucom (who later went out on his own) and, with the passing of John Duffey, he went back to the Scene while keeping Carolina alive and well.

Concert Review: Lovett could not have scripted it any better – Cerritos is a fair distance from Hollywood, but Lyle Lovett, who has accumulated a long list of acting credits, sometimes seemed like he was giving a company town performance this night.

Washburn, Fleck create "Echoes" Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn have powerhouse individual talents; each has followed an estimable career path to where they find themselves today: making complex, but spare, records, writing music together and touring with their son Juno.
