Walking Song (Rounder)
by Ron Block

FOR FANS OF: Allison Krauss & Union Station
Rating: 5 Stars

Ron Block is the spiritual center and celebrated banjo player in Allison Krauss’ backing band, Union Station. Every few years, the bluegrass legend steps out on his own to release a solo album, yet he’s never come close to the beauty and warmth of his latest, Walking Song. With three instrumental tracks and numerous originals, it’s hard to believe these aren’t traditional Americana staples, but that’s a testament to the ability of Block and co-writer Rebecca Reynolds. A Grammy nomination is a real possibility here.
