Nightflyer Releases “Old River” Bluegrass Video

Old RiverThe Ohio band Nightflyer has completed their first professional video for the Hazel Dickens’ tune “Old River” off their recent CD, “Rail River & Road.” It’s safe to say that it isn’t your average bluegrass video. The video was filmed over two days along the banks of the Ohio River in the quaint little town of New Richmond, Ohio, just east of Cincinnati; and an additional day in a Northern Kentucky swimming pool. Yes, swimming pool.

Nightflyer’s “Rail River & Road” Now Available

Rail River & RoadNightflyer announces the release of their sophomore recording “Rail River & Road.” The CD includes 13 cuts, eight of them brand new songs. After the success of the Paula Breedlove/Brad Davis original tunes the band recorded on their first CD, they went back to that well and found three more by this duo that they felt were a perfect fit for the Nightflyer sound. Rick Lang and Joe Richardson each contributed two songs, and the final original, “The Man I’ve Come To Know,” was written by Nightflyer lead singer and guitarist Richard Propps, honoring his late father. The cover tunes range from Hazel Dickens’ “Old River” to “Train, Train” made famous by the rock group Blackfoot, and later recorded by Dolly Parton.

Although Propps most often takes the lead, on this track he contributes his soaring tenor over Stewart’s hair-raising vocals. The band is rounded out by bassist Tony Kakaris, Tim Jackson on dobro and Rick Hayes on mandolin. Guest Clay Hess provided the rhythm guitar work.
