Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Ricky Skaggs (vocals, guitar, claw hammer banjo, mandolin); Cody Kilby, Bryan Sutton (guitar); Johnny Hyland (electric guitar); Jim Mills (banjo); Mike Snyder (claw hammer banjo); Molly Skaggs (dulcimer); Andy Leftwich (mandolin); Stuart Duncan (fiddle); Jeff Taylor, Tim Laure (accordion); Mark Fain (bass instrument); Sam Bacco (spoons, percussion, bells); Keith Sewell, Paul Brewster, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Sharon White (background vocals).
  • Given his instrumental virtuosity, superb taste in personnel and songs, and his consistently excellent discography, it seems almost impossible for Ricky Skaggs to make a bad album. BRAND NEW STRINGS does nothing to shake that standard. With Kentucky Thunder, Skaggs's fiery, spot-on backing band, the singer/composer/multi-instrumentalist mixes traditional and progressive tendencies on this album, reeling off dizzying musical feats, while keeping the whole as cool and down-home as a glass of lemonade in the summer.
  • Skaggs's easy tenor singing leads the way on most tunes, but it is his blistering mandolin playing and Kentucky Thunder's fiddle-and-guitar work that really take the spotlight. The opener, "Sally Jo," has a classic blues-drenched bluegrass quality, and the slower-tempoed "Lonesome and Dry as a Bone" is infused with a plaintive, yearning feel. Skaggs has a soft spot for reflective songs with positive messages, as on the narrative ballad "Love Does It Every Time," but he never fails to bring back a propulsive energy, as with the breathless title track. BRAND NEW STRINGS is another impressive notch in the belt of contemporary bluegrass's leading light.
Professional Reviews
