roots and branches cd coverDanny's debut mandolin albume, Roots & Branches will be re-released using the latest in eco-friendly packaging. Please keep up with the store page for more updates.

"Danny Knicely's bluegrass and old-time roots run deep, and I've enjoyed jamming with him through the years. His fiddle feeds flatfooters, and his guitar drives hard, but it is his fluid mandolin that takes the spotlight here. This adventurous CD travels from community dance, though bluegrass festival campground, to the late night club. There are tributes to Bill Monroe and Kenny Baker, a jazzy version of "Ookpik Waltz," and several fine originals, including the newgrassy "Salt Run" in seven-four time. Thankfully avoiding Protools slickness, these grooves are intimate and alive, and the sound is big and round. The band can and does stretch out, displaying virtuousity as well as humor in the process. With this CD, Danny shows he's as much fun to listen to as he is to play with." -- Tim O'Brien
