ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hello and welcome to the "Home Grown Hymns (Locally-Picked)" CD Baby page. On this page, you'll find traditional hymns arranged and played in a bluegrass/acoustic style. So what makes this site different from other bluegrass/acoustic hymn sites?

Well, for starters, every attempt has been made to retain and emphasize the melody as written by the original authors. Even on the faster songs (yes, some are quite upbeat) one should always be able to hear the melody (oh yes, and harmony too).

Also, a considerable amount of thought was given to creating some "space-between-the-notes". Although the genre is bluegrass, one or more of the verses, for each song, features a simple "as-written" melody or melody/harmony combination.

The final fact is that many of these hymns cannot be found in the bluegrass/acoustic style elsewhere. Several of the songs were purposely chosen from hymnals that (to the author's knowledge) have never been tried in this style before. My hope is that you, the listening audience, will find (like me) that hymns work well and have beauty in the bluegrass/acoustic genre!
