SELDOM SCENE one of the most acclaimed bluegrass bands of all time, is back. And like an old friend coming around for a visit after being gone too long, the Scene pulls up some chairs and starts telling stories, and the time between just melts away. Warm harmonies and sparkling instrumental work are as strong as ever, signature sounds over the band's 36-year career that have remained constant despite multiple line-up changes. Now the band is Ben Eldridge, guitarist/singer Dudley Connell, mandolinist/singer Lou Reid, dobroist/singer Fred Travers, and bassist/singer Ronnie Simpkins and occasionally guitarist Chris Eldridge. It's this quintet that is the longest lasting version of the band, together since the 1996 death of founding member, the legendary mandolinist and larger-than-life character John Duffey.
