When an audience gives a group of performers a standing ovation before they've even played a single note you know you're in for a very special evening. Such was the case this past Monday (July 20, 2015) at The Sheldon Concert Hall, as Ricky Skaggs, Sharon White, Ry Cooder and company took to the stage to perform a memorable and moving collection of classic gospel, country, and bluegrass tunes. It really doesn't get any better than this if you're a fan of the roots of country music. Not too far removed in execution from the terrific performance earlier this year by Marty Stuart and His Fabulous Superlatives, this is a group of musicians who seek to keep the fire burning for tunes that seem to have a life all their own, even if a lot of them have been overlooked, underplayed, and overshadowed by the pop sensibilities that have overtaken a great deal of modern country music. If you missed it, then you should be kicking yourself - this was pure bliss from start to finish.
