Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge
"Avalon"
+180 Records

The cover photo of this disc is a composite of Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge, one image overlaid on the other.

It's unreal.

Putting a contemporary, jazzy spin on the driving bluegrass sound, Blue Canyon Boys will appeal to fans of dyed-in-the-wool old-time country and lovers of acoustic music in general. The honky-tonkin' "Heartaches Welcome" is the Colorado band at its pickin' and harmonizin' best.
