Doyle Lawson slates new CD

Tuesday, March 24, 2009 – Doyle Lawson celebrates 30 years of recording with Quicksilver with his 34th release - "Lonely Street" (Rounder) on May 5. The album, produced by Lawson, features 12 bluegrass and gospel tracks.

Lawson co-wrote one of the songs, Down Around Bear Cove, with Josh Swift. "Swift started this instrumental," said Lawson. "He wrote the first part, and I wrote the bridge. It's a catchy tune with some elements of swing, as well as bluegrass. We had fun jamming on this one...It's a little harder to play than it sounds, and we love the challenge."

The disc is Lawson's third for Rounder. Songs are:
1. Monroe's Mandolin
2. Lonely Street
3. Ain't A Woman Somebody When She's Gone
4. Big Wind
5. Oh Heart, Look What You've Done
6. The Human Race
7. Call Me Up and I'll Come Callin' On You
8. Yesterday's Songs
9. Down Around Bear Cove
10. Johnny and Sally
11. My Real World of Make Believe
12. When the Last of Our Days Shall Come

CD reviews for Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver

CD review - Live In Prague, Czech Republic Imagine a full auditorium in mid-January- not in Bean Blossom, Ky., but Prague. The local Czech emcee approaches the microphone; his anticipation is matched by the audience: Doyle Lawson is in town! This unlikely scenario rolls out in real time (more or less) on Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver's release "Live In Prague, Czech Republic."

CD review - Life is a Story Life really is just a story, a collection of memories we share to remember moments, circumstances, life lessons, heartache, friends and family, the good times and the bad. Over 40 years in the music business has certainly given Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver plenty of stories to share, remember and pass on, making "Life Is A Story" essentially a book on tape, albeit set to Lawson's high standard of powerful and polished instrumentation. "Life Is A Story" kicks off with a ...
CD review - Burden Bearer Bluegrass Gospel and A Cappella Favorites Mandolinist and bandleader Doyle Lawson is one of the giants of bluegrass music with a long list of honors and awards, but he and his rotating group Quicksilver may be at their best on Lawson's many gospel music albums. Over the last 30 years, he has alternated secular and sacred releases on a regular basis, with the gospel albums leaning toward a capella quartet sounds and much of the fast-paced picking on the secular sides. This new gospel release from Lawson and Quicksilver takes the ...
