Rebel Records has announced May 8 as the release date for Home From The Mills, the second recording from the duo of Jimmy Gaudreau & Moondi Klein.
This pair of bluegrass veterans have served their time in some of the most celebrated acts in the business: Jimmy with The Country Gentlemen, J.D. Crowe & The New South, and The Tony Rice Unit; Moondi with Seldom Scene and Chesapeake.
Their debut project, 2:10 Train, was well-received in 2008, making a follow-up all but inevitable. The new album was again recorded duet-style, with Klein on guitar and vocals, and Jimmy singing and playing mandolin, mandola, octave mandolin and guitar. Moondi’s daughter, Lauren Klein, adds harmony vocals.
To whet your appetite, Rebel has sent us a trio of audio samples. First up is the title track, written by Paul Lawrence Mellyn.

And a fine old-time fiddle tune, included as part of a medley on the record.

Sounds like another winner from these two.
