Kathy Kallick, Annie Staninec, Cary Black, Greg Booth, and Tom Bekeny celebrate the release of Horrible World, which promises to follow in the tradition of the previous five Kathy Kallick Band albums; all received widespread critical acclaim, and all spent a year in the upper echelons of the national charts.
This one contains a half-dozen new Kathy compositions, an original instrumental from KKB member Tom Bekeny, distinctive covers of numbers learned from Bill Monroe, the Carter Family, and Bob Wills, plus a couple of unique interpretations of traditional songs.
Also featured: music from Foxhounds — the 2016 #1 album on the Roots Music Report Contemporary Bluegrass charts(!) and in the National Bluegrass Survey (Bluegrass Unlimited charts) 2016 Top 10 — and from IBMA’s 2015 Momentum Award winner (Instrumentalist Of the Year) Annie Staninec’s first solo album. Plus: favorites from two earlier KKB hit albums (Time and Between the Hollow & the High-Rise), classics from the Good Ol’ Persons, gems from the bluegrass/old time/country music repertoire, and more than a few surprises. And: NEW STUFF!
