Scarlet Banjo (2001)

Jeremy Stephens

Scarlet Banjo is Jeremy Stephens debut release on the Rebel label. It was recorded when he was just sixteen years old in 2001. He is backed by a talented group. Troy Brammer, who recorded some classic sides with Wade Mainer in the early 1950s, plays guitar on twelve of the fourteen tracks along with writing "Double Banjo Roll" and "The Scarlet Banjo". Kirk Sutphin swaps leads with Jeremy on two guitar duets. Ronnie Stewart who has been an IBMA "Fiddle Player of the Year" and a veteran of the Lynn Morris Band along with Andy Martin, who is steeped in old-time and bluegrass, provide the fiddle backing. Darren Moore, a dedicated disciple of the Carter Family, rounds out the sound on the bass.  The Washington Post noted about Jeremy and the album upon its release: "He may be the new kid on the block, but on "Scarlet Banjo" he often sounds like an old soul with still nimble hands." Jeremy is a founding member of "High Fidelity".
