They're not just dusting off old Dylan tunes either. To find songs like Little Sadie, Hop High, and Aint No Grave, they dug deep into the gold mine of tunes floating around the lexicon of American and European folk music. These are songs you might encounter in one form or another if you play the banjo or the fiddle, but you'd be very unlikely to hear if you're just an average music aficionado.
We all form associations between where we are in life and the music we're listening to at that time (whenever I hear Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, it zaps me right back to my high school graduation!), so when I learned that Crooked Still had a new album out, I figured I'd save it for a special occasion: a family trip we had planned over the summer.Read more ›
To current fans: Some Strange Country is another album that will need a permanent residence in your album queue.
To newcomers: Take a listen to a few of the tracks and I'm sure it won't be long before you, too, are a fan.

I normally listen to metal and classic rock, and if someone had told me I'd fall in love with a (neo)bluegrass band I'd have said they were insane. Read morePublished on August 23, 2013 by Zabdorff
Some Strange Country is up to Crooked Still's usual standard. I found it creative and enjoyable to listen to, with passages of really creative and virtuosic muscianship. Read morePublished on July 26, 2013 by Rev. A. Trethowan
