Dan Tyminski seems to be having a highly deserved success
with his band to judge by some of the posts i've read on the 'Cafe. Is this band just something to do until AKUS reforms,or is it going to be a permanent band line up & an aside to Dan's role in AKUS ?.IMHO,Dan Tyminski is one of the finest singers in Bluegrass music today.not to mention the fact that he's also an incredible musician. Again,IMHO,
AKUS as a band have run out of steam as far as 'Bluegrass' music goes. The last CD i bought of theirs 'Lonely Runs Both Ways' only had 3 tunes on it that could be called Bluegrass,the rest of it was the sort of stuff that Alison Krauss seems to prefer. I've no problem with that at all,she has to make a living,& if her music sells - which it does - fine,just don't give it a Bluegrass label.
I truly wish that AKUS would get back to their roots in Bluegrass.They have a sensational line up & if Adam Steffey re-joined,i'd buy every CD they made,
