Who needs a brother when we have Alison? Despite the mainstream acceptance of O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Alison stands stoically as bluegrassís most visible practitioner. A fiddle prodigy, Alison began her career while still a teenager. While these early recordings were rooted in traditional bluegrass, her sonic palette soon expanded to include contemporary material. Her warm performances and beautiful voice justly crossed into the mainstream, earning well-deserved acclaim.
Bluegrass was created on the influences of old-timey music, which itself is rooted in the ancient musical traditions of the British Isles. Therefore, this album isnít simply a loving look at the music of Alison Krauss; it is a history lesson of popular music in America. Fiddle, banjo, and pennywhistle create an authentic atmosphere of yesteryear when folk songs were cheerfully passed between musicians. This album is packed with lively interpretations of Alisonís best-loved songs.
