Fiddlefreak is drowning under a deluge of bluegrass music. My desk is overflowing with CDs and press releases! So let’s get started on this pile of good old hillbilly mayhem with a record that was released earlier this month from the Colorado-based band Spring Creek. “Way Up on a Mountain” (Rebel Records) is their third release and it’s mighty fine. A great choice of mainstream material, smooth harmonies, and impeccable picking make this one a lovely listen. Fiddlefreak keeps skipping back to the songs that are sung by bassist Jessica Smith. And we can’t help but dig a band that has two members that are fly fishing guides—how cool is that? (A spring creek is a spring-fed waterway that often holds lots of large trout.) Thumbs up from Fiddlefreak!
