Dancin' On The Fingerboard


Critics' Reviews

amg review
Dancing on the Fingerboard is excellent modern bluegrass fiddling with some vocal support from Tony Rice. Seven of the 12 tracks here are instrumental. As an oft-recorded bluegrass sideman, Rickie Simpkins is a prevalent, talented, and well-known contemporary bluegrass fiddle and mandolin player. Simpkins chose a collection of his own favorite material for his debut solo album on Pinecastle Records. Of course, he recorded much of this classic material at different times, and had a well-conceived idea about how to present it best. Along with the Tony Rice Unit, the McPeak Brothers are on hand to get each song just as Simpkins wants it. Others in the stellar array of American and bluegrass journeymen on hand to create this dazzling record are Dan Tyminski, Sam Shelor, Don Rigsby, Bill Lux, Tim Austin, Roy Huskey, Mark Newton, Wyatt Rice, and Ronnie Simpkins. ~ Tom Schulte, Rovi
