Winding Through Life

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
It almost doesn't seem fair -- not only is Doyle Lawson's band arguably the finest in traditional bluegrass, but he seems to be determined to lead the best gospel group as well. Several things set his ensemble apart from the pack. It's not just the consistently high quality of his singers though that alone would be enough to put Quicksilver in the top rank of gospel groups -- it's also the group's surprising stylistic variety.
