Format: Audio CD
Playing Time - 49:14 -- Tim O'Brien is not afraid to arrange an old traditional number like "Hold On" with electric guitar (Kenny Vaughan) and conga and shaker (Kenny Malone). He recognizes that traditional music is timeless, but he also welcomes the opportunity to incorporate modern sounds right alongside the old. While a bit lengthy, take the 6-minute rendition of "Moses," for example. Kenny Malone's drum kit imparts a solid rhythmic foundation as banjo, fiddle, guitar and four vocalists get spiritual. Tim shows a very adventurous side with the title cut that could have the same significant impact on this century's music as "Hot Corn, Cold Corn" did when Flatt & Scruggs first presented that in the last one. For folks who want to discover how to embody saxophone into traditional music, then they need look no further than Sam Levine's playing on songs like "Cornbread Nation" and "The Foggy, Foggy Dew."

That gives a clue as to why I appreciate O'Brien's releases. Besides his own zestful singing and picking, he also hears accordion, drums, percussion, electric guitar, steel guitar and other instruments right alongside the traditional string sounds of banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and bouzouki. He also branches into various genres such as Cajun with "Let's Go Huntin'," that the supporting musicians also clearly enjoyed too. The blues are best captured on this album when Tim O'Brien and Dan Tyminiski sing "House of the Risin' Sun." Well, Jimmie Rodgers' "California Blues" is full of old-time country moxie and yodeling but also some slightly distorted electric guitar with reverb and driving snare drum. On "Boat Up the River," I would've preferred hearing some banjo and less electric guitar. Bluegrassers will perk up at the original "Runnin' Out of Memory" (with Del McCoury's tenor).

I have been a huge fan of Tim for at least a decade. Each release of his is so wonderful, that I keep wondering how a current one can be as good or better. Somehow he manages to exceed expectations with each one. Cornbread nation falls perfectly into this pattern. It may be his best yet--excellent song selection, evocative and exciting presentation, and seamless collaborations with guest artists who are the cream of the current folk/bluegrass/americana crop. Esp. his amazing sibling Mollie, with the voice of gold. I see little point in describing the individual tracks--just sample them and you will see.

Never heard of Tim O'Brien until I sampled "Fiddler's Green" album in stores but bought both and do not regret it. Cornbread Nation is humorous, soulful with catchy rhythms and vocals. It's a mix of original and old tyme songs. Tim O'Brien is my new fave.

I love Tim O'Brien's music--period. Am not a music critic but the joyfulness of the music and instrumentation, Tim's voice, & rhythm have me listening over and over
without tiring of the "repetition." Makes me feel better about my self-destructing country, human foibles,, and the whole works! Thank you, Tim!
