David Grisman Bluegrass Experience - Muddy Roads

San Rafael, Calif. — Acoustic Oasis has announced the release of Muddy Roads, a new studio recording from the David Grisman Bluegrass Experience.

Commenting on the recording David Grisman said, "When I was about 15 years old, I first heard the newly-recorded tapes that my neighbor, friend and mentor Ralph Rinzler had made in Shouns, Tennessee of the legendary old-time country musician Clarence "Tom" Ashley and his neighbors - Clint Howard, "Fiddlin'" Fred Price, Gaither Carlton and Arthel "Doc" Watson.

"The music I experienced that day in Ralph's kitchen made an indelible imprint on my musical psyche which remains to this day.

"This collection is my personal remembrance of Doc, Clarence and Ralph (all gone now) and my homage to them and the timeless tunes and songs that they played so long ago."

The David Grisman Bluegrass Experience includes David Grisman on vocals, mandolin and mandola; Samson Grisman on vocals and bass; Keith Little on vocals, banjo, mandolin and mandola; Chad Manning on fiddle; Jim Nunally on vocals and guitar; and Tracy Bigelow Grisman on vocals.
