THE SIEKERS—TEXAS – A-Team Records ATR 502 [Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine, March 2007 Issue] - The Siekers are a husband and wife team originally from Germany who now reside in Texas. Rolf is a dynamic banjo picker whose style closely resembles that of the late Bobby Thompson while Beate plays guitar and does most of the lead vocals. For this recording, they are joined by noted pickers, including guitarist Tony Rice and fiddler Stuart Duncan. The 14 selections are a well-balanced array of melodies both original and borrowed that reflect their adopted Texas roots. Rolf's banjo especially stands out on such pieces as "White Freightliner Blues" and the instrumentals "Galveston Rain" and "Saradora's." Beate shines vocally on "Grapes On The Vine," "You Can See Texas From The Moon," and "Bluebonnet Girl." In all, "Texas" is a vibrant collection of contemporary bluegrass that oozes with excitement from start to finish.
