Authentic (2019)

Band of Ruhks

Comprised of all former members of The Lonesome River Band (whose landmark album Carrying The Tradition was released on Rebel Records nearly thirty years ago), the Band of Ruhks re-unite Ronnie Bowman, Don Rigsby and Kenny Smith, while adding former LRB banjoman Brian Fesler, to a band that straddles the line between bluegrass favorite and roots music trailblazer with ease. Appropriately entitled Authentic, the band’s sophomore album (produced by Ben Isaacs), and first for Rebel Records, is filled with nearly all originals, with all members contributing at least one song. The harmonies between Bowman, Rigsby and Smith are nothing short of remarkable. Just listen to new songs like “Julie,” “Cold Heart of Steel” and the album’s closing masterpiece, “Good Spirit Here” (featuring The Isaacs).
