“Too Lonely, Way Too Long”
RECORD LABEL:Dark Shadow Recordings
Rick Faris has found that rare, fine, bouncy, mid-tempo bluegrass groove in this self-penned tune. It’s equal parts infectious and elusive in the standard bluegrass cannon. Faris and this band of super-pickers have knocked it out of the park. It includes stellar performances from notables like GRAMMY award winning Jerry Douglas. “Mr. Bluegrass” Del McCoury lends a blistering tenor vocal.
