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.
