Beth Stevens: On the Edge of Bluegrass

Beth Stevens has been around bluegrass music her whole life, but her whole name hasn’t been attached to a project until now. Strong Enough, her solo debut, comes out on Pinecastle Records next week, and it takes the traditional bluegrass of her youth in the Stevens Family band and marries it to the more contemporary acoustic country/bluegrass of the album she did with her sister, The Stevens Sisters.
Steve Gulley and Dale Ann Bradley both contribute vocals, nice company to keep if you’re a bluegrass singer; and her band can really cook when they get a chance, especially on the more upbeat tunes.
Here’s a clip of Stevens and Edge from last month performing a song from the new album, “New Home”:
