Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder

Honoring the Fathers of Bluegrass : Tribute to 1946 and 1947

2008-05-11

Bluegrass mogul Ricky Skaggs and his band of musical cohorts Kentucky Thunder pay tribute to the likes of Bill Monroe & His BG Boys and Flatt & Scruggs on this homage to the veritable kings of pickin’. Although the variation in sound isn’t much to shout about, those familiar with bluegrass and the wizardry of Skaggs will tap their toes as Ricky & Co. burn through these cuts with the speed of lightning. Kentucky thunder is right! All tracks suitable for airplay Reviewed by Trevor Edmonds : May 2008
