Being an acoustic guitarist for over 45 years myself, I'm always looking for inspiring bluegrass music with purity and originality. After listening to the trial tracks I had to download this group BALSAM RIDGE which I had never heard before. I'm a hugh fan of Alison Krauss & Union Station and have almost everything that they have done as well as most of Jerry Douglas',Ron Block's,and Dan Tyminski's solo albums. This album "Trains I Missed" is a breath of fresh air and truly lights up my heart through the top notch performances of the groups players.The vocal harmonies are very surprisingly pleasant and their lead vocals addictively catchy. I truly enjoy the depth of their lyrics,their originality and was singing along with almost each track on first play thru of the album.If you're looking for fresh bluegrass,with some country leanings,with excellent balance of instrumental intricacy intwined within each song,this is a excellent album.

"Trains I Missed" is just one of the best songs ever written and Balsam Range performs it to perfection (both on the CD and live, if you're lucky enough to catch one of their incredible shows!), so even if you don't buy the whole CD, get that song! I love the whole CD, though, and have listened to it repeatedly. It's one of those that gets into your blood, and if you're listening to the CD in your car the music does your driving for you! :) More songs:

"Callin' Caroline" -- great showcase of Darren Nicholson's vocals
"East Virginia Blues" -- I never get tired of this song; it seems always to show up in the best jam sessions, and Balsam Range makes you feel like you're right in the middle of a Class A jam here.
"The Touch" --Caleb Smith sings this song he wrote about Jesus; another keeper!
"Runnin' Through My Mind" --great one for listening to on the road.

I listed my favorites, but the recording really needs to be taken as a whole to get the full effect!

Balsam Range is a great group, they bring to the table great talent with an appreciation for the artistry of Bluegrass music. The music that they select is tasteful and heartfelt. I am waiting for them to bring out an all Gospel cd, their gospel songs have a sense of reverance and dedication that does uplift the spirit. This is their third album and a welcomed addition to my collection.

This was an excellent acquisition to my music collection. Great energy; great vocals and harmonies! If you're a fan of new-grass/ jam-grass, you'll love this band too.

This is my least favorite of the Balsam Range CD's but these are still good musicians and vocalists. This CD contains the GREAT song "Trains I Missed" which won the 2011 IBMA 'Best Song' award. This song alone is worth the purchase.
