'The River Road CD' brings together all the diverse elements of the music that has sustained the group through 38 years of performances and recordings. There are sweet flowing ballads recounting memories from their past. Humor pointed toward a few lifetime moments and activities 'seeming to need' further recognition. A historical relection on the treaties that disinheirited many Native Americans. And honest songs of love for people, this country, and the endless wish for a blessing to come in time. Here is a snapshot of the music... 'The River Road' tells a story of growing up in rural America, centered on family values, and the joy of a simple life. 'Twenty-four Hours' brings into focus the absolutes of time and the brevity it imposes on our lives. 'Heartland' is a picture of America displaying her amazing kindness, honest emotions, and patriotic pride. 'Reach' is a fresh adaptation of the 70's Orleans tune delivered with a progressive bluegrass flavor. 'I Met My Baby In The Porta Jon Line' is a true-life love story staged at an outdoor music festival. 'Hideaway Girl' is terrific song written by one of our favorite songwriters Jimmy LaFave. 'Redman' is the historical perspective of many of the treaties that uprooted and relocated Native Americans. 'The Yuppie Song' recognizes those amazing qualities that create the persona of the ultimate Yuppie. 'Family Memories' are the lingering thoughts of times past and the joys of family reunions. 'Still Gotta Mow The Grass' is a bluegrass love story from a bull's point of view on the location of the greener grass. 'Homemade Fiddle and a Tambourine' is a traditional foot-stompin' Saturday night anywhere country music is played. 'Shine On You' begs for an understanding of what brings us together or separates us, and asks for blessings to come. As you listen, relive your own memories; retrace your own history; remember your own love stories; enjoy your own laughter; and form your own pictures of this music. Thanks for lending us your ear!
