Karl Cooler of Mountain Roads Recordings says, “As soon as the original Close Kin project was
completed, I knew that we had created something very special. Johnny Williams and I immediately
started planning this album. Most all of the artists from the original recording are teachers and we
looked first to their students. As with the artists from the Close Kin project, where better to showcase
the youth artists who will carry the sounds of our region forward? We quickly found all of the talent
needed for the perfect combination to create this recording. Following in the model of the original
project, it was especially important to us to pick songs that were both familiar and not overly
recorded then team up the artists into combinations that are unlike anything out there today”.
Johnny Williams adds, ”This follow-up youth project to Close Kin is something Karl and I have
wanted to do for a while. The performers we have recruited to play are representative of the great
musical talent from Southwest Virginia and North Carolina, regardless of their young ages. These
players have collectively played this region’s music for most of their lives at a very high level of
musicianship. Most of them will be playing together for the first time as well as embarking on tunes
and styles of music they have not been accustomed to. But I'm sure as you will hear they will pull it
