Darol Anger
"E-and'a"
Adventure Music

Darol Anger is one of the most skilled fiddlers working today. He is interested in taking the instrument into new places, though he's not interested in developing an entirely new vocabulary for the instrument, and I think that's an important distinction.

When you dare to combine genres of music, you dare to combine more than simply sound and style. An audacious blend of music can bring together diverse cultures, and in the realm of American society there are few backgrounds more disparate than that of small-town bluegrass and the deep urban flavor of hip-hop. On Thursday night, the 2720 Cherokee Performing Arts Center made easy work of the task, lead by the prototypical alchemist of the genres, Gangstagrass.

Tony Trischka
"Great Big World"
Rounder

I wanted to love this album, and I'm having a hard time with it even now, because saying something negative about a new album from Tony Trischka is akin to sacrilege.

The Freight Hoppers 2/22/14

"Are you trying to get a master's degree in musicology," the Freight Hoppers' David Bass was asked during an interview, "or are you out there really raising hell and having fun with the music?"

This has felt like the official year of "Well, it's about time!" recordings. There seemed to be so many albums from top-flight players who haven't released anything in, literally, years. In all cases, it was worth the wait.

Bluegrass isn't known as the most flexible of genres, but in the capable hands of the Infamous Stringdusters and the trilling accordion of Bruce Hornsby, a song like "Road to Boulder" can both live up to the high standards of bluegrass tradition and realize wholly new sounds at the same time.

The DJs of 88.1 KDHX have picked their "Songs of the Year," and the resulting list -- spanning all manner of sounds and styles, ranging from radio hitmakers to local heroes -- forms a pretty comprehensive (and thoroughly enjoyable) look back at the year in music that was 2013.
