ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Album Notes:
The story of New Augusta Bluegrass Band begins in May of 2008 when bluegrass pals David Schroeder (guitar), Lisa Wagoner Schroeder (upright bass), John Gates (mandolin), and Rich Walter (banjo) came together for a pick-up gig – and never looked back! Multi-instrumentalist Roger Banister and banjoist Brian Lappin now round out this five piece ensemble of talented pickers and singers. This recording represents a cross-section of our expansive set list – one built around a solid core Bluegrass repertoire and augmented by selections from several other genres.

Thanks -
To our families, friends, and fans, and to our pickin’ buddies and mentors. We are the people we are, and the musicians we are, because of your gifts of love and support.
Special thanks -
To Brandt and Donnie: for jumping in, adding so much, and helping us turn it up to 11.
To Ryan Freeman: for giving us priority access to The Launch Pad for this recording, and for his exceptional ears, ideas, and guidance during both the recording and mixing process.
To Rich Walter: for helping us find the NABB sound and vibe as our original banjoist.
Dedication -
We dedicate this album to Bill Monroe, with fierce thanks for the music he created.
