In the winter of February 2010, four players decided to form a new group with a direction combining the best of old-time and bluegrass music. These brave hearts have been playing acoustic music for the better part of 45 years, and found that this is indeed the time for another highly skilled acoustic band Loafer’s Glory. Featuring bluegrass and old-time legends Herb Pedersen, Bill Bryson, Tom Sauber, and Patrick Sauber, who between them have played with The Foggy Mountain Boys, Ry Cooder, Laurie Lewis, Alice Gerrard, Mike Seeger, The Dillards, the Desert Rose Band, just to name a few.
As husband-wife couples go in the world of music, it is a challenge to find a duo as well-fitted and naturally prolific as that of singer/guitarist Susan Tedeschi and guitarist Derek Trucks. They are both heavily steeped in the blues tradition, yet open to far-ranging influences including rock, gospel, jazz and World music. As last year’s lengthy Revelator World Tour wound down, the band decided to record their October concerts in the highest quality possible, and their foresight paid off as the group turned in several of their most powerful performances in the band’s history. From that fruitful run of shows THIS two-disc set (also available on vinyl) that captures the collective spirit and lift of a typical TTB concert—raising the roof with a Saturday night sense of abandon, before gently concluding with a Sunday morning spiritual.
