“The Famous Lefty Flynn’s” by The Grascals
In a short six years, The Grascals have become one of the hottest tradition-leaning groups in bluegrass music. Their new album, “The Famous Lefty Flynn’s,” shows why.
Hot picking, solid vocals and a knack for expertly placing non-traditional material into an authentic bluegrass setting, without the whole thing sounding like an awkward, silly mess, is a hallmark of the band, and songs such as “Out Comes The Sun,” “Satan And Grandma,” “Last Train To Clarksville” and the title track showcase that knack once again.
It’s a definite keeper.
