‘Circles Around Me’: Sam Bush releases new solo CD on Oct. 20
If you ask local favorite and internationally known music-maker Sam Bush where he is musically these days, it’s likely he’ll tell you he’s back where he started,
That is, in a sense, he is, as he prepares for the Oct. 20 release of Circles Around Me, his seventh solo offering and his sixth CD for the Sugar Hill roster.
Last month, the Americana Music Association honored Bush with its Lifetime Achievement for Instrumentalist award. And truth be told, it’s not quite sunk in, it seems.
“It’s overwhelming and humbling,” says Bush of the honor. “It goes along with the title cut of my new album, Circles Around Me, which basically says, how in the hell did we get this far? In my brain I’m still 17, but I look in the mirror and I’m 57.”
Alternately known as the King of Telluride and the King of Newgrass, Bush reports that his forthcoming solo effort is an aurally inspiring mix of bluegrass favorites and complementary new songs.
