Cluck Ol’ Hen

CD ($11.99 / Skaggs Family Records)

Skaggs, the award-winning country-bluegrass picker, and Hornsby, the pop singing-and-songwriting pianist of “The Way It Is,” “Mandolin Rain” and “Every Little Kiss” fame, were touring together when they got the idea to record some of the tunes they tossed around every night on stage. This lively collection of live recordings is an exhilarating blend of their two distinctive styles on a 12-song stroll through a shared songbook of Bill Monroe classics, mountain music gems, instrumental improvisation and high-lonesome harmonies.
