Ron Block and Jeff Taylor: Trouble Go Down

Newgrass whizzes Block (banjo, guitar) and Taylor (piano, accordion) step away from their work with the likes of Alison Krauss and Elvis Costello to present this homespun collection of hymns and original tunes. And they don’t come alone; guest singers include Suzanne Cox, Ellie Holcomb, Skye Peterson, and several Square Pegs (Andrew Peterson, his daughter Skye, Jill Phillips, Andy Gullahorn, and Randall Goodgame) while Buddy Greene, Stuart Duncan, and Barry Bales offer their well-respected skills. It’s part-instrumental, part vocal, and all immaculate.
