Mandolin master Danny Roberts is no stranger to hard work and well-deserved accolades. The founding member of the award-winning Grascals has won several awards both on his own and as a member of that 3-time Grammy®-nominated group.
Recognition, however, has never been Roberts' goal. He is a true artist who continually strives for excellence and seeks new discoveries. His second solo project, Nighthawk: (Mountain Home), spotlights a seasoned and innovative player in his prime.
The recording is a eclectic mix of sophisticated acoustic stylings from Bluegrass to Swing to New Grass and includes some of Danny's Grascals bandmates as well as "musical idols, friends and family."
"It was so much recording tunes that I have written accompanied by such outstanding musicians. I'm very excited about the special guests that came in to record with me and I am truly honored to have them be part of this."
- Danny Roberts
The album line-up includes Kristin Scott Benson of the Grascals, Tim Surrett of Balsam Range, Tony Wray of Blue Mafia, and special guests include Ronnie McCoury, Sam Bush, Aubrey Haney, Mike Compton and vocal appearances by Danny's daughter Jaelee Roberts and his wife Andrea.
