The Expedition Show is recording this month, sequestering themselves at Depression Lies Studio in Sevierville, TN. That’s the studio owned and operated by Show mandolinist, Alex Hibbitts.
The new album will be released on Mountain Fever Records sometime in the Spring or early Summer of 2013.
The band is fronted by the husband/wife team of Blake Williams on banjo and Kimberly Williams on bass, with Wayne Southards on guitar along with Hibbitts on mandolin.
Kimberly sent along a a video, plus this description of the project so far.
“The album is self-produced by The Expedition Show and, so far, we’ve recorded songs written by Blake, one by Alex, as well as some new arrangements on some great old traditional tunes. We’ll also have more duets on here with Wayne and I than on previous records.
And we’ve recorded the saddest song I’ve ever heard, also written by Blake. In fact, it’s so sad that every time I try to talk about it I start to cry!
We’ll have a couple of special guests on it as well including our good friend Phil Leadbetter who’ll play Dobro on a couple songs for us. And as always, our buddy Tim Crouch is playing fiddle.”
