Our latest CD is now out! We continue to feel blessed to have Jody King so masterfully record, produce, and engineer our CDs at his After 5 Studio in Ararat Virginia. He also plays banjo wonderfully well on: "Mama Loved the Redbirds", "Just as Long as You Love Me", "Red Clay Halo", "It's Alright", and "Evelina." Cheri Williams has done the outstanding photography for this CD. Bill is playing a carved bass he made and a VA-OM east Indian rosewood and torrified spruce top guitar he made in 2016. Maggie continues to play the sweet sapele dobro Bill made for her years ago. Jody is playing a unique banjo of his design and construction. As you can see from the list of songs below, we are very taken with the songwriting of Mark "Brink" Brinkman as evidenced by the fact that 5 of the songs on this CD are written by him!

High on a Mountain






































High on a Mountain  was recorded at Eastwood Studios, Cana, VA January 2009.  Bill is playing his short-scale rosewood dreadnought and Maggie is still playing the sapele dobro he made for her. 

                                                     

This album has been very well received so far.  The November 2009 issue of Bluegrass Unlimited  said of it: "For homespun vocals supported by dynamic instrumentation, it would be almost impossible to top the music of Bill and Maggie Anderson"  In it we continue to reflect our warm feelings for these beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and our love of the Gospel message.
