Show Notes
Get Ready to Go Retro! Traditional music masters David Grisman, John Hartford, and Mike Seeger have joined forces to create Retrograss (ACD-37), a unique musical exploration of popular songs recreated in classic American folk styles. Imagine Otis Redding's "Dock of the Bay" in Jimmie Rodgers style, Bob Dylan's "Maggie's Farm" ala Dock Boggs, Elvis Presley's "Hound Dawg" in the style of Charlie Poole and the North Carolina Ramblers or Chuck Berry's "Memphis" with John Hartford's bouncy backwoods fiddle playing and vocals. Even the Beatles can't escape Retrograss, as "When I'm Sixty-Four" is transplanted from the Isle of Wight to the hills of Tennessee as an old ragtime string band number. Retrograss, with 17 memorable tracks produced and performed by David, John and Mike, is a musical delight -- thought-provoking and just plain old good fun.
