Album Review

The title of this foursome's fine debut for the Rounder label comes from a lyric of the disc's second song — the old-timey warhorse "Cotton Eyed Joe." Nearly all of the songs here will be just as familiar to fans of traditional old-timey music and bluegrass, but that's OK. These relative youngsters pay homage to tradition by performing with a joy that all but leaps at the listener from the speakers. Their love for the music of Gid Tanner, Tommy Jarrell, and Uncle Dave Macon is apparent in every note the Freight Hoppers play. The CD's booklet includes fiddle and banjo tunings to help out listeners interested in playing along.

The Freighthoppers - Ride the Train

This is one of the best old time groups that have come down the dusty road in many a day. Dave Bass' fiddling is rooted in the traditions of the Surry/Carroll County region but developed to an extent that he is a true original. Frank Lee is an expert accompanist on the banjo and the rhythm section is rock solid. I can't say enough about this band. It doesn't matter what tune Dave Bass puts his mind to it's going to come out of his fiddle on fire. Masterly music that will stand the test of time. Hear a legend in the making.

The group's roots lie in the early '90s, when banjo player and Atlanta native Frank Lee was playing for the Great Smokey Mountain Railway in Bryson City, NC. He called upon his friend, fiddler David Bass, a Cleveland native who had been busking in N.Y.C. and New Orleans, to come to Bryson City to help him entertain disembarking...
