ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Siamese Cousins consists of Edwin Lacy on clawhammer banjo and vocals; and Scott Freeman on mandolin, fiddle, and vocals. Both have more than twenty years of shared musical collaboration with the popular “break-out” group, Skeeter and the Skidmarks. The two have also appeared (together and separately) as guests in various venues and on many recordings through the years. Their musical rapport is intricate yet playful, harmonizing so tightly that, at times, it sounds as if their two instruments blend into one. Whether Siamese Cousins are rollicking through an old-time fiddle tune, interpreting a newer alternative acoustic offering, or painting tonal canvases with one of their original songs, it doesn’t take long to realize the magic of their combined musicianship. Both Edwin and Scott were featured artists for the highly acclaimed Mountain Roads
Recordings project, Close Kin, A Reunion of Bluegrass & Old-Time Music. Their music blends so well that they consider themselves ‘joined at the frets’, hence Siamese Cousins.

Scott and Edwin are the heart of Siamese Cousins and are joined on their first recording, 2 Chairs, No Waiting, by a veritable Who’s Who of regional super-pickers: guitar virtuoso, Brandon Davis; two-time National Bluegrass Banjo Champion and guitar wiz, Steve Lewis; master of the five-string banjo; former Bill Monroe Blue Grass Boy, Butch Robins; premiere multi-instrumentalist and studio artist, David Johnson; and debuting on this album with a tremendous rendition of Gordon Lightfoot’s ‘The Way I Feel’ is Scott’s daughter, Dori Freeman, who is gaining a strong musical following of her own;
and Willard Gayheart & Sandy Mason, bandmates from Skeeter & The Skidmarks.

This CD features a mix of original songs by both Edwin & Scott along with covers of Gordon Lightfoot’s, The Way I Feel; John Hartford’s, Gentle On My Mind; Paul Simon’s, Homeward Bound; and Butch Robins’, Rural Retreat. The range of songs covers the gamut from old time traditional to pop to strong bluegrass but you’ll hear Edwin’s truly unique Clawhammer banjo style mixed in with all these creating a sound like you’ve never heard before.
