"I've been hosting shows featuring bluegrass, old-timey and folk music for over 25 years now. A dozen or more CDs do their best to clutter my desktop each week... some by established artists, that are usually good, others that are, well, just basically clutter. It doesn't happen often, but it's happened here with this recording by Colorado based "Hard Pressed". To paraphrase the Hot Rize song they take their name from, they were hard-pressed, and they found a way. A way to meld the ringing clawhammer banjo stylings of Andrea Lecos and fiddle playing of Cory Obert on some wonderful instrumentals. But you don't want to pass up the old timey, yet contemporary vocals or Ms. Lecos, some in tunes she wrote herself. A nice duet on an old Dylan tune, a lovely country waltz, a straight ahead folk tune or two, a pinch of Cajun flavor here and there, it's a great variety and just plain fine music in a new-timey old-timey way. A pleasure to listen to, from start to finish."
