Red Henry Helton Creek

The nineteen tracks on Helton Creek display the breadth of Red Henry's musical prowess. Accompanied by his son Chris, daughter Casey and wife Murphy, Red tears it up on mandolin, mandola, mandocello, and lead vocals. His four original compositions have an authentic old-time bluegrass sound. While not as slick as most mainstream commercial releases, Helton Creek trades polishfora level of commitment to Bill Monroe's legacy that would make him smile.

Tom Paxton Comedians & Angels

At 70, Tom Paxton's voice is as unique and unmistakable now as when he burst upon the folk scene in the early 60's. The fifteen new songs on Comedians & Angels cover a wide range of subjects from modern sea chanties, celebrations of friendship, to contemporary social commentaries. Sensitively produced by veteran producer Jim Rooney, this disc elegantly demonstrates that Paxton still has a special gift for creating poignant contemporary folk music.

Honeydripper Soundtrack

John Sayles' latest film "Honeydripper" soundtrack features a heady mix of rural blues, urban 50's R&B, roots country, and rock and roll. First generation artists Memphis Slim, Ruth Brown, and Hank Williams join contemporary revivalists including New Beginnings Ministry, Keb Mo', Gary Clark Jr., and Barrence Whitfield to create a cohesive picture of American music in the early 1950's. The newly recorded cuts by Gary Clark Jr. 's capture the very essence of the rustic pre-rock and roll style.

Tim Hensley Long Monday

Backed by a bluegrass band that's so hot they could make a frog sound like an American Idol winner, Tim Hensley's first solo effort is as solid as the rock of Gibraltar. Hensley has served time in the journeyman trenches with Patty Loveless, Ricky Skaggs, and most recently Kenny Chesney. His heartfelt lead vocals and well-honed musical taste prove he's ready to move up to the front of the stage.
