It was produced by Stephen Mougin, label-owner and guitarist for the Sam Bush Band."The adjectives used to describe The Rigneys include 'phenomenal' and 'blown away.' They're all true! This family gets it done." Terri Holloway, Prescription Bluegrass Blog.
Opening for the Rigneys will be Chattanoogan Lon Eldridge.

Lon has toured the USA and Europe, taking his unique blend of traditional blues, ragtime, and jazz to whole new audiences. He will be joined by Ed Huey playing harmonica.

Ed has performed at festivals and clubs from Quannah, TX to Elkins, WVA. Lon and Ed also collaborated to produce the well received bluesy CD entitled Play Dat Thang.
