Josh Miller to NewFound Road

Josh MillerWow… things move fast in the bluegrass world!

Just a short while after the sudden announcement that Jr. Williams was leaving NewFound Road comes news of their hiring of another red-headed banjo picker.

Josh Miller, formerly with Carrie Hasler & Hard Rain, will be holding down the banjo spot with NFR.

Tim Shelton of NewFound Road tells us that as always, change can be a trial, but he feels that they are coming out even stronger from this switch.

“Josh has an insane amount of energy and presence onstage and his playing is on par with anyone on the scene today.  I hated to see Jr. quit abruptly, but at the same time I’m excited about the possibilities that Josh will open up.

We played our first show with him last night, and Josh KILLED it!!!!”

You can find the band’s tour schedule online for a chance to catch them in person in your neck of the woods.

Their new album, Same Old Place, is set for an April 28 release on Rounder Records.
