ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bluegrass music with its characteristic fusion of country, acoustic instruments and high energy, has wound its way through contemporary Rock, Jazz, R&B and Gospel. This series is designed to come full circle. Following the folk process and its evolution, we return to the roots of those influences and pay tribute to one of the most heartfelt and free form styles of American musical expression. This hand-picked group of extraordinary players has professional ties with Bill Monroe, The Everly Brothers, James Taylor and many others including regular appearances on the Grand Ol' Opry stage. These interpretations bring home the essence of what makes music in life such a gratifying experience. Here's one for the Beatles! Featuring Charlie Chadwick, Pete Huttlinger, Jerry Cortez, Tommy White, Tammy Rogers, Hank Singer & Bob Mater.

If you are one of those die-hard Beatles fans who also happens to perk up at the mentioning of bluegrass, you have found a little piece of heaven with Grassmasters' album, "Beatles Grass." Just as the name suggests, these are bluegrass arrangments thumping and lilting through some of the best tunes by the Beatles. With sweet, singing fiddle, ringing mandolin and the usual country folk get-up, this group gives a fresh, danceable, especially earthy context to some of the greatest songs ever written. Without too much flair or flash, these interpretations are true, simple and shoot straight for the heart.

Richard Astley-Clemas

Not really a new idea
In 1965 a group called the Charles River Valley Boys did an album of Beatles in bluegrass for the Elektra label.As the songs of Lennon & McCartney were inspired in the first place by American music they were perfect to interpret as country music and I've just seen a face is ascloseasthis to the genuine article.
Liverpool had a strong tradition of country music in any case and the Beatles always used what was there on their own doorstep.
Today its pretty common to find bluegrass versions of the most unlikely songs even heavy metal ones which is rather flogging the idea.(A recent one of metal done bluegrass style is called Weapons of Grass Destruction!)
The Beatles are the prime movers in this department having actually inspired many American groups such as the Byrds or even Bob Dylan
The Grassmasters are actually session musicians who may be the same ones who do all the bluegrass interpretations.
But this one sounds authentic
