Cadillac Sky - Blind Man Walking

Blind Man Walking, Cadillac Sky's first album on Skaggs Family Records, hits stores tomorrow. Cadillac Sky could primarily be classified as a newgrass band, but the influence of country, traditional bluegrass, and Celtic music can be heard. Banjo player Matt Menefee and fiddler Ross Homes have both placed at Walnut Valley and singer and mandolin player Bryan Simpson has had several songs recorded by mainstream country artists.

Singer Bryan Simpson's baritone splits the difference between recent hat act Josh Turner (with whom they're played) and John Cowan of New Grass Revival and highlights an ambivalence running through this CD toward the divisions between traditional, progressive, and popular.
