Description

Mark Kuykendall and Bobby Hicks are bluegrass veterans who have a combined 110 years of professional experience between the two of them. By the age of 14, Kuykendall had already played on the world famous Grand Ole Opry and had performed and recorded with many of his Western North Carolina heroes, including Raymond Fairchild, Ralph Lewis, Marc Pruett and others. He went on to work with the King of Bluegrass, Jimmy Martin, and the Father of Bluegrass, Bill Monroe. Hicks is a legendary bluegrass fiddler who began his career with Monroe in 1954. He would later go on to play with Porter Wagner, Mel Tillis and Ricky Skaggs, performing on Skaggs' most successful recordings and winning 10 Grammy Awards along the way. Forever And A Day is an album that never leaves you in doubt that it is straight-ahead, traditional bluegrass. It contains a well balanced selection of old favorites like 'Roust-a-bout', 'We Live in Two Different Worlds' and Ernest Tubb's 'Journey's End', a few gospel numbers including 'I'll Follow Jesus', 'In His Arms I'm Not Afraid' and 'Wicked Path of Sin', as well as two new Kuykendall originals: the title track and the catchy, country-flavored 'I Don't Have The Want To Anymore'. In addition, a couple instrumentals showcase the extraordinary range of Hicks' 'legendary fiddle work, from the jazzy sway of his own composition, 'Zuma Swing,' to a gorgeous version of the popular 'Ashokan Farewell.'
