Album Notes
Creating a sound that holds on to the foundation of bluegrass music, but that also incorporates new ideas isn't easy. On Cold Hard Winter, Mike and Dan have written a group of songs that does just that! Mike's songs keep to many of the themes expressed in traditional bluegrass. The closing down of a steel mill, a tale of a corrupt sheriff and the punishment of an innocent man, the perils of mining coal. Mike combines these themes with interesting chord progressions and complex arrangements. Dan writes and sings with the passion of a young man. Stopped late at night on a country road by a man wandering alone, beside himself because his wife has gone, the protagonist drives on, thinking about his future and his own relationship. These are the musical ideas that make Sycamore Bend.

The combination of original material written and performed by Mike and Dan along with the instrumental backup of Steve Hall on Banjo, Doug Carlton on resonator guitar and Mike's son Travis on bass make for an interesting and lively group. Cold Hard Winter is an outstanding piece of Americana music.
