Sam Bush - Circles Around Me

Sam Bush - Circles Around Me

Sugar Hill has announced an October 20 release for the new Sam Bush recording Circles Around Me, a mix of bluegrass and newgrass.

Supporting musicians include guest appearances by Del McCoury, Jerry Douglas, Edgar Meyer, and New Grass Revival co-founder Courtney Johnson, the latter reunited as the result of a previously unreleased recording with Bush and Johnson's fiddle and banjo recording of "Apple Blossom" from 1976. Sam's superb touring group including Scott Vestal on banjo, Stephen Mougin on guitar, Byron House on bass, and Chris Brown on percussion round out the ensemble.

Selections are a mix of new versions of previously released recordings and original compositions including a Monroe-like waltz entitled Old North Woods.
