New Album – Pickin’ Friends
In short, Red Wine are, in every important way, masters of bluegrass. Their voices are strong, their instincts for material and arrangements impeccable, their playing both judicious and joyous, and their respect for the music’s vital traditions undeniable. So, too, is their creativity.
Pickin’ Friends isn’t an impressive, enduring piece of work for an international band, it’s an impressive, enduring piece of work, period. Congratulations, my friends, you’ve delivered an unqualied winner.
