Eight Miles High: A Bluegrass Tribute to the Byrds is a new turn on the unique sounds of one of the most influential rock bands of the sixties and seventies, an instrumental exploration of their greatest folk tunes. The Byrds’ innovative “jangly” sound and ethereal harmonies were driven by eclectic guitarist Roger McGuinn, who pioneered the use of twelve-string and steel guitars in rock music, and anchored by the bluegrass-tinged bass of Chris Hillman, a former mandolin player whose traditional style further complemented the diverse blend that was the recipe for The Byrds’ success.
