One of the Best CDs This Year
Pure brilliance. Scott is a mighty fine slide guitar player and songwriter and has one of the most soulful voices heard any side of Vermont. He is ably supported by cellist, Eugene Friesen, guitarist, Sam Broussard and multi-instrumentalist T-Bone Wolk. This is one of the best CDs you will hear this year and any year.
