SKU: AIX 85058 Categories: , , , , , ,

This is the follow up project in our Brand New Opry series, which brings together a west coast contingent of fine musicians from the Ojai and Ventura areas to sing and play “coastal country” as one participant calls it. Imagine a group of great singers and pickers gathering together to make some terrific music except you’re included! There are traditional tunes like “Hop High” and original compositions like the late Jimmy Adams’ “Big Ol’ Red Guitar”, which he delivers with an authenticity that only Jimmy could muster. It is after all his tune.

It features:

Jimmy Adams, vocals & guitar
Albert Lee, acoustic guitar
Phil Salazar, fiddle
Jonathan McEuen, vocals & guitar
Nathna McEuen, vocals & guitar
Dan Wilson, vocals & mandolin
Rikka Zimmerman, vocals

The project is very diverse. There’s a great tune called “My Guitar, Myself and I” by fiddle virtuoso Phil Salazar and veteran Jonathan McEuen playing his Fender Telecaster electric guitar and singing a highly affected vocal and another native American selection called “Warrier of Love”. If you’re a fan of acoustic, heartfelt and fun country/folk music, then this AIX Records release is for you. This disc was shot using HD video equipment and is presented in 16:9 HD-Video.
