Richard Bennett “In The Wind Somewhere”

Set for release May 27th, Richard Bennett’s latest project “In The Wind Somewhere” should prove to be his best yet. Richard’s musical path has included his own bands along with stints with Lou Reid and Carolina, J.D. Crowe and the Richard Bennett In The Wind SomewhereNew South, and part of the trio with Jimmy Gaudreau and Mike Aldridge. And if you’re familiar with Richard, you can understand how he would be the perfect fill in for Tony Rice back in the 90s with the Tony Rice Unit and the Bluegrass Album Band. In fact, one of the highlights on this collection of tunes is that Tony Rice sits in on “The Last Thing On My Mind” and “Wayfaring Stranger”. Others joining Richard is an all-star cast of Mark Shatz, Adam Steffey, Ron Stewart and Sean Lane. Check this one out from one of the best vocalist and guitarist in Bluegrass today, Richard Bennett and “In the Wind Somewhere” on Lonesome Day Records. www.lonesomeday.com
