Dreamcatcher Blazes Its Own Path to Tradition

Ted,

     Good intro to this great young band. I like their style. They have a traditional, but unique sound.  It took me a minute to figure out what was different, no fiddle!!!  I like a fiddle in a bluegrass band, but I like this sound without fiddle. These guys enjoy what they are doing, I don't see how they can miss. I like these bluegrass players that take time to work with kids. This genre is popular, just not a moneymaker. People that want real popularity outside of the bluegrass scene usually move on into popular country, like Vince Gill and Alison Krauss.   There are still plenty of great bluegrass bands.
