Starting with the notion that the banjo is not 'just' a bluegrass instrument anymore, banjoist Mike Stahlman has woven together a tapestry of tunes that demonstrate the instrument's range and versatility. From Irving Berlin and Erroll Garner, to Bill Monroe, Don Reno, and traditional fiddle tunes, Mike uses a smooth, flowing style and an ear for nuance to produce a musical collection that is a 'must have' for lovers of acoustic, instrumental music. Mike's original tunes 'Old Jack' and the title tune 'Bluebonnet' have the sound and feel of tunes destined to become bluegrass standards. Mike is joined by Dawn Watson, whose tasteful mandolin style is a highlight of the recording. Fiddler Mike Eisler, guitarists Dan Wetzel and Dave Hardy, and bassist Tom Lee, round out this all star cast.
