It is that time of year. As the year concludes those of us who write about music get to reflect and indulge our personal preferences by reviewing the offerings of the past year and providing our perspectives on ‘the year’s best.’ I deliberately avoid the word ‘best,’ and always refer to these as my favourites.… Continue reading Fervor Coulee’s Favourite Bluegrass Albums of 2022

Peter Rowan- Calling You From My Mountain review
Peter Rowan Calling You From My Mountain Rebel Records In various configurations and eliminating live sets, Peter Rowan has recorded well over 40 albums of new music.

Fervor Coulee’s Favourite Bluegrass Albums of 2018
