Trail Mix August 2011

A bit over three decades ago, Sugar Hill released it’s first recording, Boone Creek’s One Way Track, and the rest is history. Since then, the little label that could has been pumping out the best in roots and Americana music. Sugar Hill’s roster has featured some of the best and finest names in bluegrass, folk, and country music: Doc Watson, Ricky Skaggs, Tony Rice, Donna The Buffalo, Railroad Earth, Willie Nelson, and many others have all released records on the label. This month, Sugar Hill provides us with ten choice cuts for our Trail Mix. Included are new tracks from Grammy winner Jim Lauderdale, Australian songbird Kasey Chambers, Nick 13, Connie Smith, and Tara Nevins, along with five tracks pulled from their extensive catalog, featuring guitar giants Bryan Sutton and David Grier, and masters like Jerry Douglas, Ricky Skaggs, and John Starling. This is a mix that will please any lover of fine Americana. Take a listen. If you like what you hear, check out – or an independent record store near you – and grab a disc or two from these great artists.
