Bluegrass Rox 2020 Part 2 Traditional songs.

Bluegrass Rox releases part two of his 2020 album this time featuring a selection of traditional songs.

Bluegrass Rox

'Bluegrass Rox' has been very busy using lockdown as an opportunity to record new material.

Departing from instrumentals, he has recorded a selection of fifteen traditional songs carefully chosen from the Folk, Bluegrass and Country roots genre'.

Bluegrass Rox has 'reinvented' these songs for today's audience with high quality arrangements and high quality recordings and also enlisted the help of a small group of friends, Andy Heaseman (of Caution horses fame) providing support vocals and beautifully engineering the vocal recordings, Anni Meehan (of the golden voice fame) providing the best harmony vocals and excellent mental health support, and Brenda Cavanagh (of the golden penny whistle fame) providing some beautiful penny whistle accompaniment, all from Ipswich UK.

The end result is an album of very high quality, and given there are 15 songs, extremely good value.

This album also introduces one of Bluegrass Rox' newest instruments, the very rare East Anglian hammered dulcimer hand made by Con Rendell.

The album is available on all the usual platforms as well as the 'Bluegrass Rox' official website. CD's with lovely artwork, sleeve notes, track list and even signed if you ask nicely, can be ordered via the website.
