By J. Ross on November 5, 2011
Format: Audio CD
Singer/songwriter Scott Holstein lined up some of my favorite Nashville-based bluegrass session musicians to bring his original songs to life on an evocative album with a sharp edge. One can hardly go wrong with the likes of Randy Kohrs (Dobro, harmony vocals), Scott Vestal (banjo), Tim Crouch (fiddle), Aaron Ramsey (mandolin), Clay Hess (guitar), and Jay Weaver (bass). Special guest Don Rigsby adds vocal tracks to a cappella "Black Water" and "Clinch Mountain Hills." The latter pays a respectful tribute to the Stanley Brothers. Holstein follows that track with another in ¾-time, "The Holstein Waltz," a particularly elegant showcase for champion fiddler Crouch and mandolinist Ramsey. Originally from West Virginia, Holstein's self-penned title cut has an impressionistic message that evolves melodically into an expanded jazzy improvisation. Mournful themes are similarly revisited in the "Boone County Blues" and "Roll Coal Roll." Another stellar song is "Montani Semper Liberi" (West Virginia's state motto meaning mountaineers are always free) that tells of a young West Virginia in 1863 who chooses neutrality during the Civil War rather than to allow the gray or blue to take his mountain. The bouncy instrumental "Leavin' Charleston" could become a bluegrass standard. Holstein's album has grit, largely as a result of his expressive baritone vocals and formidable rhythmically-enticing bluegrass accompaniment. Both are similar to Jim Lauderdale's approach to bluegrass. Holstein's direct, creative approach to writing and singing impart plenty of attitude, as well as a few honky tonk, country and rock & roll influences into a thoughtful bluegrass project. (Joe Ross

Sounds a more than a lot like the Steel Drivers...which is high praise from me, considering I consider them about the best modern bluegrass group.

So...this is just a wonderful album, on its own. I enjoyed every song...and I love the tension in Holstein's songs. The lyrics mean something, and the playing is commensurate...

Very, very good modern bluegrass...and very, very good modern Americana.

Am awaiting, with anticipation, his next...

Scott Holstein's song Montani Semper Liberi is thrilling. It is a rare gift to discover this song. The gravely voice of Scott Holstein makes it.

Scott's writing and music are wonderful. I am from Boone County WV, like Scott is, the songs remind me so much of home and bring back a lot of memories. Black Water is about a disaster that occurred in 1972 and you feel the pain of that disaster in his words and music. I also loved the Holstein Waltz. If you love Bluegrass or the old style country music this is the CD to get.
