Blue Highway- Somewhere Far Away review

I’ve published my review of Blue Highway’s Somewhere Far Away over at Fervor Coulee Bluegrass: http://www.countrystandardtime.com/blog/FervorCouleeBluegrass/entry.asp?xid=1148 It is another exceptional album from a group that never fails to take their music to new and higher levels of performance. “Ain’t getting no younger, least I’m getting older.” Who knew that one day I would relate?!
