New Let’s Go to the Fair Review from Hearth Music!
Here is the latest review of our debut album Let’s Go to the Fair. Thanks very much to Devon Leger for the kind review. Here’s what Devon had to say about our album:
“I’m always on the look out for the new bluegrass music that harkens back to the classic days of the genre’s formation. The sound that Bill Monroe, the Stanley Brothers, and Flatt & Scruggs birthed in the American South in the late 1940s and early 1950s. I’m not looking for a stale recreation, but that kind of red-hot, fire-in-the-belly picking and keening harmonies that made the old classics so perfect.
Impossibly young bluegrass band Windy Hill have this in spades on their new album, Let’s Go to the Fair. Their music fairly crackles with hot picking and burning fiddling, and their harmonies are deadly accurate. Somehow they manage to make the music sound entirely new without compromising the smallest smidgeon of respect for the true tradition. This isn’t bluegrass handled with delicacy, it’s a blazing brand of bluegrass pulled forth from the fire with cool iron tongs.”
