Ferguson & Ferguson - Some Bridges

Ferguson & Ferguson "Some Bridges" EP is now available on CDBaby, Amazon and iTunes. Including five original songs and one classic number, the recording features performances by Ron Stewart and Mark Schatz and was engineered by George Hodgkiss. 

 

 

Here is what noted musicologist Jack Bernhardt says about "Some Bridges:" 

"Bluegrass fans and fans of good music generally, may want to check out Ferguson and Ferguson, 'Some Bridges.' Although they claim no genealogical nexus, Gary Gene Ferguson and Gary Alan Ferguson connect through music in ways that have brought acclaim for their six-song CD, “Some Bridges.” Acoustic and, for the most part bluegrass artists, the two Garys contribute original songs that also venture into swing (“Chase Away the Blues”) and blues (“Walking Boss”).  Both musicians are seasoned veterans whose performance and/or writing credits include the Gary (Gene) Ferguson Band, Claire Lynch, and John Starling. Gary Gene’s 'Last Day at Gettysburg' was a hit for Larry Sparks. This six-pack home brew epitomizes thoughtful lyrics, soulful melodies, emotive vocals, and compelling arrangements."
