The Gentlemen of Bluegrass
With the addition of Bluegrass Hall of Famers, banjoist Eddie Adcock and bassist Tom Gray, legendary strains of history, nostalgia and a bit of old "newgrass" lifts the Gentlemen of Bluegrass' persona to new heights. Their instrumentation blends perfectly with the Waller/Duffey influenced vocals of Stanley, Rowland, and Langdon.
Eddie, a three time Grammy nominee, composed over two hundred songs and instrumentals. His distinctive and innovative banjo playing led to stints with Mac Wiseman and Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys, before he joined the Country Gentlemen in early 1958.
Tom, a member of the classic edition of the Country Gentlemen and a founding member of the Seldom Scene, was perhaps the most influential bluegrass basses of the 70's and 80's. He was voted Best Bluegrass Player eight times while a member of the Seldom Scene and in 1966 was the first bassist to be inducted into the Bluegrass Hall of Fame.
The Gentlemen of Bluegrass, consisting of lead vocalist/guitarist Danny Stanley, tenor vocalist/mandolin JC Rowland, and dobro/baritone vocalist Tom Langdon, have recently released their new project on Blue Circle Records called "Lester's Flatt." The title cut, written by Tom T. & Dixie Hall, "The Part of Lester Flatt," is currently getting radio play throughout the United States.
Audiences find The Gentlemen of Bluegrass with Adcock and Gray to be a combination of unique but familiar sounds and stage presence. The refreshing new deliveries by The Gentlemen of Bluegrass with the solid gold sounds of Adcock and Gray provide the audience with an experience filled with memories.
