A Skaggs Family Christmas Volume 2 – Review
This concert on CD and DVD is a real bluegrass ,Christmas treat, recorded live at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. A very relaxed concert featuring The Whites and Ricky Skaggs with Kentucky Thunder.
What a treat to watch and hear the very talented Cody Kilby playing guitar, I mean (lead bluegrass guitar), missing alot in bluegrass today.
There is something for everyone if you are a country or bluegrass fan. The traditional Christmas songs are just plain beautiful with the accompaniment of the Nashville Strings.
A very special combination of original songs and traditional Christmas material is performed.
“What Songs Were Sung” is a song that one of the Skaggs girls sang. It is just a very sweet, melodic tune. Following that, Luke Skaggs, (son of Ricky) plays lead guitar on a very upbeat song called “Flight To Egypt” which is very progressive. Luke Skaggs is a refreshing young, talented man who looks like he will carry on his Dad’s tradition.
There is a CD which has a lot of the songs which were on the DVD in the set.
