If you attend many bluegrass or acoustic music shows, you’ve surely encountered young fiddle phenom, Casey Driessen. Just 27 years old, he’s toured with Chris Jones, Tim O’Brien, B???la Fleck and folk/country rebel, Steve Earle since graduating from Berklee College of Music. Casey’s fiddle was also heard on the soundtrack of the smash hit Johnny Cash bio-pic, Walk The Line.
On May 9, Casey’s first solo project, 3D, is set to be released on Sugar Hill. Not much news on either Casey’s or Sugar Hill’s site, but the material seems to include some original compositions as well as tunes that especially appeal to Driessen. Guest artists include Viktor Krauss, Jerry Douglas, Tim O”Brien, B?©la Fleck, Darrell Scott and Jamey Haddad.
