This “incredibly hot” banjo project must have been filled with jet fuel the way it took off after I started playing it …
Ross’s new album is on fire!!! I listened on my car CD player and forgot which road I was traveling …
The disc IS incredible …
Every inch of Let’s Kick It is exactly what its title implies, true heel-kickin’ Appalachian joy, unrestrained delight in zesty melodies
i was amazed at how hard driving this Album is. It is a pure joy to listen too
There are two Nickerson originals featured and he proves to be as good a composer as he is a picker.
Here is is the latest release from Ross Nickerson. Accompanying Ross’ hard-driving, blue- grass banjo are four members of the critically acclaimed bluegrass band, Blue Highway, Rob Ickes on dobro, Tim Stafford, guitar and vocal, Shawn Lane mandolin and fiddle and Wayne Taylor, bass and vocals.
This album full of well-known material, highlighted with unique originals that any fan of bluegrass music will enjoy. Keeping true to his forte, Ross has assembled a fantastic set of straight-ahead bluegrass classics featuring his creative, hard driving banjo playing as well as featuring four members of one of the best ensembles in bluegrass music today.
