ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Who is Blue Ridge Grass?

The truth is that we are middle-aged men (except for Jamie, that young whipper-snapper) with regular jobs in rural Appalachia who have played Blue Grass music all of our lives, just for the love of it.

Ray and Greg first founded Blue Ridge Grass while in their teens. At that time Bluegrass Unlimited, upon reviewing the first (out of copy) recording project called them “a force to be reckoned with” primarily on account of their instrumental virtuosity. Life on the road as a Bluegrass musician has never been an easy row to hoe, and family responsibilities caused them to decline those opportunities.

The present incarnation of the band has been together since 2003. While excellence in performance and arrangement is the passion, the objectives have been solely regional. On that score we are proud to receive write ups like the following from North Georgia’s largest Bluegrass event (http://www.georgiamountainfairgrounds.com/rootsAndMusic.php)

“As one of the most popular bluegrass music groups in the Southeast, these seasoned musicians have developed a unique sound that is instantly recognizable. All five members have been playing instruments since their childhood years and have entertained fans for over two decades.”

Thunder Road is reviewed by Bluegrass Unlimited (available at http://www.georgiamountainfairgrounds.com/rootsAndMusic.php). In conclusion, the reviewer says: “While "Thunder Road" is primarily a regional production, the contents suggest that Blue Ridge Grass certainly has the potential of reaching out to a more diverse listening audience.”

We obviously hope that is so, and consequently have made this release available on CDBaby. Give the clips a listen and if you like us, the CD is the easiest way to take us home with you.
