Rebel Records has announced that their first new release for 2008 will be a duo project from Jimmy Gaudreau and Moondi Klein.
Bluegrass fans remember Gaudreau from his years with The Country Gentlemen, The Tony Rice Unit and his current gig with John Starling & Carolina Star. Klein will be familiar as a former member of both Seldom Scene and Chesapeake.
According to Mark Freeman of Rebel:
“It’s a very simple, straightforward traditional album, a polar opposite to their Chesapeake days. There are no additional musicians or instruments, just Moondi and Jimmy on guitar and mandolin respectively performing a number of bluegrass and folk standards with some very nice instrumentals as well.”
The two have played a number of shows in the DC-area, and will be booking shows for 2008 as their busy schedules with other commitments allow.
Look for their new CD on Rebel in February 2008.
