"Borrowed Time" is Bob Amos's first bluegrass outing since the last Front Range CD in 2003, and we must say he's hit a home run. We love this CD!

From 1988-2003 Bob Amos was lead vocalist, guitarist, songwriter and frontman for SUGAR HILL recording artists FRONT RANGE, one of the world's top bluegrass bands. Front Range toured throughout North America and Europe, and their songs, mostly penned by Amos, were mainstays of the bluegrass radio charts. In 1995 Amos's song "One Beautiful Day" was the title cut of Front Range's 1995 gospel bluegrass project, which was awarded "Bluegrass Gospel Recording of the Year" by the International Bluegrass Music Association. Bluegrass Unlimited magazine has called Bob "top of the Bluegrass songwriting class" and SingOut! magazine reviewer John Lupton labeled Bob as "one of the most consistently intelligent and interesting songwriters in
American music." After pursuing other musical endeavors Amos has now returned to the fold with his ﬁrst all-Bluegrass project in nearly eight years. The new CD, "Borrowed Time" includes eleven songs written by Amos, plus a new Bluegrass arrangement of a Robert Johnson blues classic. An impressive group of Bluegrass notables joined Bob for this recording project, including IBMA mandolinist of the year Jesse Brock, former Front
Range bassist Bob Dick, and Vermont favorites Patti Casey, Colin McCafFreeman Corey.
