Rebel Records has released Surrounded, the first single from a new album by Jimmy Gaudreau & Moondi Klein. It’s a song from Jonathan Edwards, one he had included on his 2011 album, My Love Will Keep, which as you might guess, is a set of tender love ballads.
This theme, duo remakes of songs from other artists, continues throughout. They include a version of Merle Haggard’s I’m Always On A Mountain When I Fall, plus Lyle Lovett’s If I Had A Boat, which serves as the title track. There are also covers of music from Bob Dylan, Gordon Lightfoot, and James Taylor.
Though their duo work isn’t strictly bluegrass, both have a long history in and around the music. Gaudreau has worked for nearly everyone in bluegrass, from Tony Rice to The Country Gentlemen, and Klein made his bones with Seldom Scene.
Surrounded is available now as a single from popular download sites, with the full project releasing on September 30. Radio programmers can download the track from Airplay Direct.
Here’s just a taste…
That’s Moondi’s daughter, Lauren, on the high harmony.
