This Old Town (1999)

Auldridge, Bennett & Gaudreau

Auldridge, Bennett & Gaudreau. A superb album of beautifully.played contemporary Bluegrass by this band of veterans who have combined forces to create a neat new combination. Auldridge, after a most impressive run as master dobro player with the Seldom Scene, then Chesapeake, brings a smooth & tasteful quality to all the material here, and Jimmy Gaudreau, veteran of many years with the Country Gentlemen and the Tony Rice Unit, among other groups, lends a distinct and mature flavor both vocally and instrumentally to the overall sound. Both these artists work well with the younger but stellar guitarist/vocalist Bennett. The songs & tunes they have selected all work well: some of the best are Silence & Tears, Billy Gray, "Southern Son, Come & Sit By The River, the title song and Kirn Fox's new Love Remains. Along with the more traditional.We Live In Two Different Worlds and You Didn't Say Goodbye. There's also a really lovely instrumental version of Just A Closer Walk With Thee, A warm & polished, highly enjoyable album, well recommended.
