All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
Bill Evans is a master banjo player, one intent on showing that the instrument can tackle music that stands outside the usual country and bluegrass canons. That's not to say he ignores that side of things, by any means, and with some powerhouse guests, he plays some mean country music and bluegrass.
