Old & In The Gray

Old & In The Gray has probably received more coverage by orcasound then any other media source within 100 miles of Montreal.  I hope some of you have had a chance to listen to this beautiful art form.  o­n the other hand, musical sub-cultures and unpopular forms of music have always been a lot more agreeable for their fans.  Bluegrass music is quite often hidden or even unavailable o­n several metropolitan radio dials.  The impromptu jams, lofty vocals and high degree of musicianship are overtly noticeable even by the most uninitiated ears.  As some of you may have noticed, I interviewed the founder of Old & In The Gray a week before their performance in Burlington, Vermont.  Catching these five "bluegrassers" live was an epic moment for me. The musicians in the band include: David Grisman (mandolin, vocals), Peter Rowan (guitar, vocals), Vassar Clements (fiddle, bass vocals), Herb Pedersen (banjo, guitar, vocals) and Bryn Bright (upright bass). The CD has been such a pleasure to listen to and brings me back to the "Green Mountains" of Vermont whenever I close my eyes.  The 14 tracks o­n the album flow effortlessly into each other.  This disc is available from acousticdisc.com if you can't find it in your local record store
