Live In ConcertWashington, DC -- Stoney Creek Bluegrass Band will appear on Tuesday's (7/26) Tom "Cat" Reeder Show on WAMU's Bluegrass Country. Stoney Creek will be in the studio at 2:00 p.m. (EDT) to premiere their new album, Live In Concert.

Live In Concert is officially available today. Country Music DJ Hall of Famer Tom "Cat" Reeder will premiere the live album and discuss the project with band members from the studios of WAMU's Bluegrass Country in Washington, DC.

Live In Concert visits banjo and dobro player Darrell Sanders' back catalog from his days with Charlie Moore and Bill Harrell & the Virginians. Stoney Creek turns in a rendition of Moore's "I'm Leaving Detroit", as well as "Kickin' Mule (Whoa Mule Whoa)", which Darrell originally recorded with the Virginians on his 1983 solo album, "West Virginia Style".

Mandolin player Brett Smeltzer handles lead vocal duties on the classic "Sitting On Top of the World". Brett also sings a duet with Libby Files on a powerful version of the Osborne Brothers' "Midnight Angel". Libby sings several often-requested favorites here, including numbers from the Osborne Brothers, the Stanley Brothers, and Rhonda Vincent.

Guitarist Ed Barney handles most of the M.C. duties throughout the set (with some memorable lines from the rest of the band). Ed kicks off several guitar tunes and sings lead on many of the tracks, including a striking version of Jimmy Martin's classic "Freeborn Man". Ed also pays homage to the Osborne Brothers, as well as Flatt and Scruggs, and Red Allen.

WAMU's Bluegrass Country is on air at 105.5 FM in northern Virginia, on HD Radio at 88.5-2, and online at
