Overview

Long before the bluegrass revival hit big, Rounder Records was diligently capturing the sounds of pure Americana. Practically all the major names in modern bluegrass have recorded for Rounder, a fact well attested to in this polished collection. If your interest has already been piqued, then this is place to hear the real deal. The variety of artists and personal interpretations on the genre will give you an invaluable musical overview. The religious aspect of bluegrass has been one of the prime foundations of the music itself. This collection brings together many of the major names in present-day bluegrass, each performing a spiritually minded song. There are veterans -- Del McCoury, Jim and Jesse McReynolds with Mac Weisman -- and more contemporary figures, such as Ricky Skaggs, Laurie Lewis, Tony Trischka, and James King, yet all are linked by musical vivacity and integrity. If bluegrass speaks to you at all, this set will find its way into your heart.
