Dewey Farmer and Derwin Hinson - Another Patuxent Winner

Dewey Farmer & Derwin HinsonBluegrass Unlimited once proclaimed Dewey Farmer "The Best Mandolin Player You've Never Heard." But for those of us who came up in and around the North Carolina bluegrass music scene, the last 3 words of that title were always unnecessary. To us, Dewey was simply the best. A stirring combination of Monroe style down strokes and machine-gun triplets, of traditional fiddle tunes and crazy Andy Statman covers (a contrast revisited to kick off this recording); there is simply no one like Dewey. And besides, that unofficial title was never entirely accurate anyway.
