In every lick and harmony, these guys take the long view of the music they love, from its traditional roots in the southern mountains, to the first classic ensembles of Bill Monroe, Jim & Jesse, and the Stanley Brothers, to the newgrass revolution ignited by Crowe's band, The New South.' - from the liner notes by Scott Alarik
Six years have passed since the last recording from bluegrass supergroup Longview, and Deep in the Mountains marks their much-anticipated return. Original members James King, Don Rigsby, and Marshall Wilborn are now joined by J.D. Crowe, Ron Stewart, and Lou Reid, resulting in a potent new lineup with the chops, discipline, and heart required to make the bluegrass tradition come alive. From the first note to the last, Deep in the Mountains is a striking update of the band's long-held goal: soulful old-school bluegrass with soaring lead singing and riveting three-part harmonies.
