Longtime Virginia favorites and Mountain Fever artists, the Bluegrass Brothers just released their brand new single, "Memories of My Childhood," written by Danny Lam. The song is from their upcoming July album titledGenerations.
The release ofGenerations marks the re-birth of a stellar bluegrass institution and brother duo that harkens back to the brother duo traditions of the Lilly Brothers, The Osbourne Brothers and so many more. Having worked crowds into a frenzy at their live shows for almost twenty years,Generations takes this brother duo into their future, showcasing what they do best on what is arguably the strongest release in their career.
Originally formed by a band of brothers, the two original remaining siblings, Robert and Victor, are now joined by Victor's two sons, Steven on guitar and Donald on mandolin. Friend and player Chris Hart is the only non-brother member of the band and plays dobro.
Donald, who is known to have one of the strongest and more authentic voices in traditional bluegrass music, did a stint with James King before joining his father's group. The band is better than they have ever been.
