The Chieftains - Down The Old Plank Road: The Nashville Sessions (2002) Retail CD
Now that bluegrass is (again) momentarily cool, leave it to the Chieftains to (again) plunge an all-star country cast into the Celtic wellsprings of old-time music on Down the Old Plank Road, just as they did 10 years ago with 1992's Another Country. It's no surprise that the Chieftains can handle the rapacious rhythms of a hot fiddle tune; whether they can go toe-to-toe with the likes of Tim O'Brien, Béla Fleck, Ricky Skaggs and Del McCoury is another matter. Rest assured they can, and they even coax some inspired jamming from Earl Scruggs--who sounds like he has something to prove on "Sallymore… Goodin"--and a chilling vocal from Alison Krauss on "Molly Ban", the Celtic equivalent of "Fair and Tender Maidens". The Chieftains' only miscue comes in wasting Vince Gill's talents on a busily arranged "Dark as a Dungeon". While this set will likely appeal more to fans of contemporary Irish music than to hard-core twang fans, anyone who loves acoustic roots music will find these collaborations refreshing, if not down-right bracing. --Roy Kasten
