Continental Divide is a quintet of proficient instrumentalists and vocalists. This contemporary bluegrass group can trade leads and present varied vocal arrangements for lively and shifting acoustic material. They represent a condensation of a long tradition and a daring, contemporary approach to the genre. Bluegrass, country and Americana nestle side-by-side in Continental Divide's shifting allegiance from one folk art to another. The lineup on this record includes new members Randy Kohrs (Dobro resophonic guitar) and well-known Ricki Simpkins (fiddle and mandolin). This helps complete the vision of the Divide as a modern bluegrass supergroup. Standing alone, each member is a master of his craft and respected in the extended bluegrass community. Together, they are the touchstone for a modern high lonesome sound.
