The debut, self-titled CD from Wayne Taylor & Appaloosa is now available.
Taylor is familiar to bluegrass lovers from his 24 years with Country Current, the US Navy Bluegrass Band, headquartered in Washington, DC. Many of those years of service were pulled alongside banjo legend Bill Emerson, who led the band while he was in the Navy.
This new release features 14 new songs of Wayne’s, performed with his band of crack, DC-area musicians. Emory Lester is on mandolin, Kip Martin on bass, Mark Delaney on banjo and Dave Giegerich on resonator guitar. Taylor plays guitar and handles lead vocals.
Now retired from the Navy himself, Taylor is taking the group out on the road in support of the new CD. They have already scheduled trips to the US west coast and to Scotland in 2009.
You can hear audio from each track on Wayne’s web site.
