That Old Familiar from David Thom

Our own David Thom has just released his latest album, That Old Familiar. It includes a handful of his compositions along with arrangements of some familiar numbers from both the bluegrass and country music catalogs.

Of course, David isn’t really “ours” in any real sense. Sure, he is a regular correspondent for Bluegrass Today, but Thom has been a staple of the California bluegrass scene for a good many years before we launched. He is known for performing with The David Thom Band, as a fine singer, songwriter and guitarist, and as a west coast bluegrass ambassador.

The record was produced by Laurie Lewis, and features a bevy of California bluegrass luminaries like Bill Evans on banjo, Tom Rozum on mandolin, Mike Witcher on reso-guitar, and Todd Phillips on bass listed among the credits.

David has agreed to allow us to share audio from a few of the tracks included on That Old Familiar.
