Alice Gerrard Follow The Music on LP
Simply put, Alice Gerrard is a talent of legendary status. In a career spanning almost 50 years, she has known, learned from, and performed with many of the old-time and bluegrass greats and has in turn earned worldwide respect for her own important contributions to the music.
Alice is particularly known for her groundbreaking collaboration with Appalachian singer Hazel Dickens during the 1960s and ’70s. The duo produced four classic LPs and influenced scores of young women singers - even The Judds acknowledge Hazel and Alice as an important early inspiration.
Produced by Hiss Golden Messenger’s M.C. Taylor, Gerrard's fourth solo effort, Follow The Music, is comprised of traditional tunes and original songs and finds Alice accompanied by members of Hiss Golden Messenger and Megafaun. These superb recordings showcase Alice’s many talents: her compelling, eclectic songwriting; her powerful, hard-edged vocals; and her instrumental mastery.
"Alice Gerrard has one of those voices that harkens back to the likes of Sara and Maybelle. She is the real deal with the right stuff and hasn’t forgotten where country music came from.” - Emmylou Harris
