True Bluegrass, great album
By M. Gray on July 13, 2016 Format: MP3 Music
This album has quickly become my favorite. I absolutely love it. Their music is like comfort food for the soul. This is true Bluegrass that will have your toes tapping. It is easy to understand how they won the Telluride Bluegrass Festival band competition. I am looking forward to the next album.
Fireball Mail - Winners of the 2016 Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest – started performing as a band in 2014. The group embodies a unique combination of instrumental virtuosity and prolific songwriting talent impressing audiences with not only their cutting edge delivery, but also with an impressive catalog of fresh and original material. Collectively, Fireball Mail has an extensive resume of touring, and recording experience including appearances with such notable artists as Buddy Greene, Claire Lynch, Curtis Burch, and Ricky Skaggs.
Regular sold-out shows at The World Famous Station Inn, house concerts, private events, theaters, festivals, and more round out Fireball Mail's diverse touring schedule.
“Fireball Mail's performance was the highlight of the evening! Each of the musicians is fabulous in his own right, but together they are magical. They blend into a cohesive whole that brings additional nuance to their sound. Their obvious joy in playing music is directly translated to their audience. ”
