Biography

Creating compelling contemporary bluegrass is a delicate balancing act. Artists must retain the music’s time-honored elements while imparting their own fresh take on the music to arrive at a sound that is both timeless and timely. It is a balance that Blue Highway executes with an acrobat’s sense of grace and daring, expanding
the expressive boundaries of bluegrass through an ... Read more in Amazon's Blue Highway Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There's a powerful new force in the bluegrass world, and its name is Blue Highway. On Wind to the West, Blue Highway again resists the temptation to show off their fast and flashy picking and instead sells each song with a strong vocal framed by sturdy rhythms and mood-heightening embellishments. If this emphasis on emotional songwriting and uncluttered arrangements brings to mind Alison Krauss, it's no coincidence. Blue Highway's founder and guitarist Tim Stafford is an alumnus of Krauss's Union Station band; dobroist Rob Ickes has recorded with her in the studio; and fiddler/mandolinist Shawn Lane has played with Ricky Skaggs, Krauss's most obvious model. Lane's high, handsome tenor yields the best vocal moments as on his aching version of the old Ralph Stanley hymn, "Two Coats." Bluegrass doesn't get more lonesome than this. --Geoffrey Himes

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic From The Band May 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This CD showed that Blue Highway's initial success was not a fluke. Carrying on the tradition that they started with their debut CD (It's A Long Long Road) they have once again created music with great harmonies, great instrumentation and great messages.
With a mix of originals, covers and traditional songs this CD soars. My personal favorites include Shawn Lane's (the mandolin/fiddle player & vocalist) "Between The Rows". A song remembering his life as a boy on the family farm. Tim Stafford's (guitar & vocals) "Clear Cut" about the practice of ruining the mountain in this way of harvesting lumber. Another highlight is their cover of Merle Haggard's "Huntsville". The list goes on and one with many exceptional cuts on this 13 track project.
One of the best contemporary bluegrass bands around that pays homage to the tradition. With luck Blue Highway will be around for a long long time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the best of the 5 (to date) Blue Highway projects December 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There are no duds from Blue Highway - only varying degrees of "good" - but this CD is a personal favorite. The instrumental work is tasteful and the vocals are hauntingly beautiful. "Clear Cut", about the exploitation by a company of a family's ancestral land, cuts to the soul, and the other tracks are equally good. Bravo, Blue Highway! If you have ANY interest in contemporary Bluegrass I would consider Blue Highway an essential part of a collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-notch pickin' May 4, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge fan of Blue Highway and all their CDs, but this is probably my favorite. The guys are at their best on these 13 tracks, both vocally and instrumentally. To this day anytime I hear "Horseshoe Bend" I think of that very place on Boone Lake in east Tennessee.

5.0 out of 5 stars great bluegrass June 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Good mix of upbeat grass combined with slower stuff. One of those discs you just put in and let it play. I recommend anything by Blue Highway with this album being in the top three (Midnight Storm will always be my favorite). I think I will make a list of bluegrass necessities...
