Time Machine, the next album from Newtown, is due to hit on November 5. It will be their first project for Pisgah Ridge, a Crossroads affiliate designed for up-and-coming bluegrass acts ready to move up to the next level.
Though they won’t be delivered until next month, pre-orders for both downloads and CDs is enabled now at Crossroads.com, where lengthy audio samples from all ten tracks can be heard.
The label has put together this promo video, largely featuring Newtown banjo picker Jr. Williams, one of the cleverest and most entertaining personalities in our music.
In addition to Williams on banjo and vocals, Newtown consists of Kati Penn-Williams on fiddle and lead vocals, CJ Cain on guitar, Clint Hurd on mandolin, and Terry Poirier on bass.
Sounds like a good’n.
