Some Bluegrass to kick start your week courtesy of Jim & Jenny and the Pinetops from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
One More In Cabin from 2002 is their third album (on Overcoat in the US and Loose in the UK) and the title track is an absolute belter.
They write their own songs rather than resort to the old standards.
None of the others are in the same league as One More but I have gone for their hillbilly version of the Greyfriars Bobby story proving as the sleevenotes highlight that in Country music you can sing a sad song in a joyous way.
I'm contemplating a series.
