Rapid Transit


(October 1, 2008) The binding theme of this all-instrumental project was to keep it traditional sounding, but with added twists and hooks to augment interest. “More Blues For Carter” expands a theme from A.P. Carter’s “Carter’s Blues.” “Haystack Rag” is a polka in a bluegrass groove, whereas “Big E’s Polka” is as oom-pah as it gets. Eddie plays banjo, guitar, mandolin and bass. Mike Montgomery helps out on fiddle and Billy Bright adds some hot mandolin. Amy Collins plays flute on “Angeline The Baker.” An ideal rapid transit system should provide you with quick travel when needed, but also interesting out-of-the-way destinations. Hop on board and enjoy the ride!
