ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
In 1995 critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Kevin McKrell met Winfield banjo champion Chris Leske and nationally renowned flatpick guitarist Craig Vance. Kevin McKrell, , Chris Leske and Craig Vance began performing what Tim Farrel of Bluegrass in Review calls " a unique style of music that makes it hard to determine where the Celtic stops and the Bluegrass begins".

The McKrells went on to play Carnegie Hall "... The McKrells Carnegie Hall performance was golden and triumphant. Every solo was met with applause, and every song punctuated with a roar..." Paul Rapp, Metroland Magazine. They won the prestigious Winterhawk Bluegrass Festival Band Contest, and have shared stages with the top Bluegrass and Celtic performers in the world today, Solas, Altan, Mary Black, Maura O'Connell, The Furey Brothers, Allison Krause, Sam Bush, Francis Black, Allison Brown.

John O'Regan of the European music magazine Rock and Reel Magazine writes" The McKrells combine the high lonesome Bluegrass heart with the poignancy of Irish music. Top dollar roots music ". Of The McKrells Bluegrass Unlimited says "... The McKrells sound is refreshing and unique. At times they remind me of Seldom Scene, Irish folk singer Robbie O'Connell with a touch of Southern Rail... ". Bluegrass Now writes "... The songwriting talent in this band is mindboggling..." The McKrells have added to the original trio lineup with world music percussionist Brian Melick and fiddle sensation Sara Milonovich .

The McKrells have been voted Bluegrass Band of the Year in 2000 and 2001 by The Northeast Country Music Association as well as Acoustic Band of the Year 3 years running by Metroland magazine. The McKrells were given their own day by their home city of Saratoga Springs and have been honored with the Spirit of Saratoga Award for contributing to the growth of the arts and to the quality of life in Saratoga Springs ,as well as being inducted into the Capitol District Music Hall of Fame.

Great stuff, lads!
Heard "All of the Hard Times.." on St. Patrick's Day at The Parting Glass. LOVED IT! Bought the CD.
While I expected more of a traditional celtic sound, the blend of bluegrass and Irish is natural and a wonderful sound!

3rd CD
Can't even begin to say how amazing this CD is as I purchase this CD for the third time in 15 years. Really miss the McKrells but still see Kevin here and there. The music was written by Kevin and performed by an extremly talented group of musicians. I listen to this music and it always seems like its the first time I heard it. Thanks Kevin , Craig and Chris for some great times and great music. Miss you guys.

Can't type, busy singing...
I first heard this cd in a friend's car and I immediately scampered to cdbaby to get my own to wear out. Alas! there were none to be had. I waited; I paced.
I finally have my own copy and adore it. Can't type anymore, busy singing.

Dick Zerrahn

another great CD by an outstanding band
This is a great blend of Celtic and Blue Grass Music, the accent Kevin uses in the Celtic songs makes you feel you are in Ireland. As always there is not a better Banjo sound than the picking you hear on this CD, simply outstanding.
