Rounder Records has announced that there has been a personnel change within the ranks of NewFound Road.
Jamey Booher, formerly of Grasstowne and The Booher Family, is replacing Randy Barnes on bass in the contemporary bluegrass quartet.
A native of Johnson City, Tennessee, and the brother of the band’s current mandolin player, Joe Booher, Jamey is reported as being “glad to be playing music with my brother again, and to be a part of NewFound Road!”
NewFound Road has been part of the Rounder stable of artists since the release in 2006 of their CD, Life in a Song, an album that documented the band’s song writing abilities, their exciting instrumental work and their soulful solo and harmony singing.
NewFound Road are, individually, Tim Shelton (guitar/vocals), Jr. Williams (banjo/guitar/vocals), Jamey Booher (bass), and Joe Booher (mandolin/vocals). They have new album, Same Old Place, to be released in February ’09.
