Fatherhood has a profound impact, and each man who experiences it feels the change in his own way. For Ronnie McCoury, it has called him to record bluegrass music designed to appeal to young listeners, and hopefully bring families together to enjoy the music as a group.
Little ‘Mo McCoury is due for release on August 21 on McCoury Music, featuring Ronnie and the Del McCoury Band on a set of both new and familiar songs with themes and/or lyrics that young children might appreciate, all performed in the unmistakable McCoury bluegrass style. They’ve included such classics as Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Teddy Bear’s Picnic and I’ve Been Working On The Railroad with bluegrass classics like Jimmy Brown The Newsboy and Mama Blues – with Rob McCoury on banjo.
Audio samples from all 16 tracks can be found on the McCoury Music site.
Some touring in support of this CD is expected, with more details anticipated before long.
