Blue Grass Style
Pickers of traditional-styled blue grass music are always paying tribute to their musical heroes. Whether it’s “here’s a lick I learned from so and so,” or just that they stay “within the rules.” Matt & George have tried to take this idea just a step further, in order to make this recording special. They have chosen songs learned from their (mostly early, local) blue grass heroes. It is, after all, the band’s 10th anniversary—with all original members, at that!

Heavy Traffic Ahead/I Hear a Sweet Voice Calling
Matt & George and their Pleasant Valley Boys perform “Heavy Traffic Ahead” (backed with “I Hear a Sweet Voice Calling”). The songs were recorded the old fashioned way, with the entire band performing simultaneously in one room (no overdubs or fixes) into a 1939 RCA-44 ribbon microphone.
