Burnside Album Details
Evans, Bill & Fletcher Bright, Songs That Are Mostly Older Than Us
Songs That Are Mostly Older Than Us is 84-year old fiddler Fletcher Bright and banjo ace Bill Evans’ follow-up to their 2013 release Fine Times At Fletcher’s House. This time around, they add Norman & Nancy Blake on guitar and cello for ten of this project’s sixteen tunes. Recorded live in Fletcher’s living room atop Lookout Mountain, TN over three days in July 2015, selections include both well-known and more obscure traditional fiddle tunes along with more recent compositions from Norman Blake (“Blake’s March), Bill Evans (“Berkeley Shanghai”), Sam Bush (“Norman and Nancy”), Bill Monroe (“Old Ebenezer Scrooge”) and Peter Ostrousko (“Heart of the Heartland”). This is a gem of an album played by true American masters of their craft!
