Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver – Lonely Street

get more from BRO

Some 40-plus years into his career, Doyle Lawson has certainly gained entrance into the council of bluegrass elders. With Lonely Street, the 34th record with his band Quicksilver, Lawson continues to provide the purest of traditional bluegrass and the sweetest harmonies this side of an angel band. Those harmonies are the trademark of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver – the band garnered seven straight IBMA Best Vocal Group awards between 2001 and 2007. Lawson and fellow vocalists Darren Beachley and Carl White hit the stratosphere on tunes like “Monroe’s Mandolin,” an homage to the Grandfather of Bluegrass, and “Big Wind,” originally recorded by Porter Wagoner. The band repeatedly shows off its pickin’ prowess throughout Lonely Street, but the instrumental “Down Around Bear Cove” is simply jaw dropping. The hallmark of longevity is consistency, and Lonely Street is yet another edition of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver’s consistently excellent contribution to the bluegrass world.
