Bluegrass Duet CD Coming from Don Rigsby & David Thom

PRESCRIPTION BLUEGRASS IMAGE  -  DON RIGSBY & DAVID THOMDon Rigsby and David Thom are currently in the studio working on a duet recording that will feature some very different material for both of these musicians.

"I'm excited about it," says Rigsby. "David and I come from very different schools, yet when we explore what we both consider 'new territory' there seems to be a lot of common ground. And that's where we got the title, New Territory."

While there will be some bluegrass standards on the CD from the Stanley's, Flatt and Scruggs and Reno and Smiley, it will venture into new areas with songslike Dan Seals' Everything That Glitters (is not Gold), Bob Seger's Night Moves and Dan Fogelberg's Same Auld Lang Syne.

"The goal is to make a great sounding record that can still be performed live by the duet," says Don. There are plans for supporting the record with tour dates in the fall.

"I flew out to Don's place in Kentucky to record for 4 days straight and we got a lot done on that trip. He's coming out for the Walker Creek Music Camp in early April so we'll have a chance to do some more tracking then," says David Thom, California front-man and guitarist.
