Album Notes
For more than three decades, Chris Brashear has been a sought-after performer and versatile sideman, singing and playing fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo and bass. Since his co-founding in 1988 of the bluegrass band, Kentucky Rose, Chris has also earned a well deserved reputation as a creative and visceral songwriter. He has traveled, lived, performed and recorded all over the United States and in Europe. His first solo recording, Wanderlust, set a high standard:

“Wanderlust is one of the best bluegrass recordings I have heard in years, which is something I do not say lightly. From the first song, Mason’s Lament, which is already a modern classic, Brashear offers up crystal perfect original gems such as Lost Soldier Son and Wanderlust, which could become classics in their own right.”

–Steve Goldfield, Fiddler Magazine

Chris has two recordings with duet partner Peter McLaughlin, Canyoneers and So Long Arizona. He is also a co-founder of the bluegrass band Perfect Strangers. Their self-titled recording was released on Rebel Records.

Chris’s most recent recording, Heart Of The Country, was produced by Grammy Award winning producer Jim Rooney.
