The CD features Johnny Warren playing a superb collection of old-time fiddle tunes that he learned from his father, the legendary Paul Warren, and banjo playing partner Charlie Cushman. The elder Warren spent many years performing with Flatt & Scruggs, and later with Lester Flatt & The Nashville Grass.
The Station Inn CD release party will feature Johnny Warren on fiddle, Charlie Cushman on banjo, Kent “Superman” Blanton on bass, and special guest Curly Seckler. Further special guests are expected to join the quartet as well.
Earl Scruggs, Marty Stuart and Tim Graves are featured on the CD in addition to Johnny Warren, Cushman, Blanton and Seckler.
The new CD will be available at the show and can also be ordered from Charlie Cushman‚Äòs website.
