Show Notes

CHICKEN ON A ROCKETSHIP is the third CD by Chad Manning (The David Grisman Bluegrass Experience, Laurie Lewis and the Right Hands). Recorded live in Chad's home with many of his favorite musicians, Chad fiddles his own twist into thirteen tunes drawn from the old-time, bluegrass and texas-fiddle canons.  Sometimes haunting, other times ecstatic, this album captures the energy of live and improvised string-band music. David Grisman, Jody Stecher, Jim Nunally, Laurie Lewis, Suzy and Eric Thompson, Catherine Manning, Alan Senauke and Patrick Sauber all bring something very special to this project.
