Del, along with sons Ronnie and Rob, take on Ola Belle Reed's "High on the Mountain," Bill Monroe's "Bluest Man in Town," Wilbur Jones' "White House Blues," Red Lane's "Black Jack County Chains," David Olney's "Queen Anne's Lace," and a handful of originals with the usual mix of rugged charm and impeccable musicianship, resulting in a delicious appetizer for those unwilling to dive into or drop money on the 50-song buffet from which it's derived.
