We’ve caught word of a few other new projects expected at some point in 2008.
Kati Penn is working now on a new project with Blue Highway’s Rob Ickes producing. She is planning a mid-2008 release.
Starting soon on a new album is Revonda Roberts & Harvest Wind, hoping to follow-up the success they saw with their Ancient Days CD, which garnered a 2007 Dove Award Nomination.
Also tracking this fall/winter are The Infamous Stringdusters, with plans to turn over a final master to Sugar Hill early in ’08. When I saw them earlier this year, there were a number of new songs in the show which they mentioned had been recently written by band members, all of which would be excellent candidates for inclusion on a new release.
No word yet on a release date for the second ‘Dusters CD.
2008 is shaping up as a powerful year for new bluegrass releases.
