Thanks to Lluís Antonio Gómez Martinez for news of the new self-titled album by the Barcelona Bluegrass Band. The musicians taking part are Ricky Araiza (guitar), Albert Bello (guitar), Lluís Gómez (5-string banjo), Joan Pau Cumellas (harmonica), Robbie K. Jones (cajón), Oriol Saña (violín), Maribel Sánchez (upright bass), and Miguel Talavera (guitar), plus two special American guests: Alison Brown (5-string banjo) and Tim Carter (5- string banjo). Tony Trischka comments:
Though the band is stretching the boundaries of bluegrass, they’ve obviously listened to their elders and have a deep love and respect for the music that’s gone before them. At the same time, they’re making their own mark in the burgeoning new-acoustic music world. Hearty congratulations to Lluis and Joan Pau and the band for creating this lovely music.
The CD can be bought at Cd Baby and will soon be available through iTunes.
