Kevin Richardson and Cuttin' Edge Releases Debut CD

Kevin Richardson & Cuttin' EdgeWillis, VA -- Known to their fans as KRACE, Kevin Richardson & Cuttin' Edge is a relatively new band on the bluegrass circuit. But don't mistake that "newness" for inexperience. Their front man, Kevin Richardson, may well be one of the most underrated guitarists and vocalists in bluegrass music, due in no small part because he's been quite comfortable taking on a more supportive roll as a sideman to some of the most popular male vocalists in the genre. After a stint helping noted tenor vocalist Lou Reid form his first solo band, Carolina, and then spending the last four years on stage in support of bluegrass legend Larry Stephenson, Richardson has learned more than a thing or two about bluegrass and what it takes to form a successful band in today's world of music. Joined by Boyd Hulin on mandolin and vocals; Scott Burgess on bass and vocals; and Chris Ward on banjo, KRACE is officially making their mark with original songs and a firm foundation built on friendship and great taste in music. The band has already been performing regularly at festivals across the country and just completed taping the popular "Song Of The Mountains" show that airs nationwide on PBS television.

It's All Rotten Taters with Mike Compton

 Rotten TatersRotten Taters is a snapshot of some of the material Mike has begun to do in his solo endeavors. It’s a project which for the first time lets us see something that we’ve only glimpsed in the past Compton playing by himself, unaccompanied and undirected. And it’s simply stellar. For Compton, it’s all about rhythm, with the mandolin serving principally as a rhythmic instrument rather than a melodic one. These days, for this style of playing, he is the player that all others are compared to; if you play old-time or traditional bluegrass mandolin, you want to play like Mike Compton. The New York Times calls Compton a “new bluegrass instrumental hero.”
