The Grass is Blue in Silver Spring

Dwight McCall

Never Say Never Again (Rural rhythm Records, 2007)

Bluegrass music is one of the world music genres that is native to the United States of America. In recent years, it has experienced a revival, with many young performers who have added new blood and ideas.

Dwight McCall, a native of Silver Spring (Maryland) is one of the finest singers in the current bluegrass scene. His singing style is somewhat reminiscent of renowned bluegrass singer and instrumentalist Tim O’Brien.

The captivating bluegrass style performed by McCall uses traditional instruments such as banjo, dobro, fiddle, and mandolin. But in newgrass tradition, the instrumentalists have numerous opportunities to play solos and perform brief improvisations throughout the recording.
