Live in the Sierras

This album is foot-tapping fabulous. All of the energy of a great live show with the precise audio of a studio album. Love it! HBR just keeps getting better.


Hot Buttered Rum is a great folk/bluegrass/americana band that has really found its stride in this album .

There are a few great covers too, including the beautiful, evocative Loretta, and the high energy, traditional Irish fiddle tune medley, Banished Set. I can't stop listenting to it!

The opening of Squall is demonstrative of the whole album. That banjo is rocking fast and beautifully. Live in the Sierra will not disappoint! Do you like mandolin, fiddle, banjo and the occasional washboard thrown in? Then you'll love this album. HBR in their element.
