The SteelDrivers - Grey Fox 2011

Gotta say up front...I Love This Band!  I was a little worried when Chris Stapleton left and Gary Nichols took over on guitar and vocals but those fears have long since subsided.  The SteelDrivers performed two sets at Grey Fox this year (dance tent and main stage) and both were killers.  I have found a copy of the main stage set that you can find here.  I am still looking for the other if anyone comes across it.

A couple of years back I was not a big time bluegrass fan, you might say I was a fringe fan.  Some newgrass and some jamgrass but that was about it.  Sam Bush and Railroad Earth.  I saw the SteelDrivers on the Opry and was hooked.

This may not be Bill Monroe bluegrass, but the sound is just fantastic.  How about we call it "Soul Grass"?  I for one can't wait for the next album and hope they'll be back on the bill next summer.  Just another great set among many at this year's festival.
