Davidson Brothers (self titled)
by Ian Dearden
That high lonesome bluegrass
sound, invented by Bill Monroe
in the late 1940s, has now
spread far and wide across the
world.
Lachlan and Hamish Davidson
(the Davidson Brothers) hail from
country Victoria, but they have
clearly imbued themselves with the
key elements of bluegrass, both
instrumentally and vocally.
On this album, their fi fth, and
the second that they’ve recorded
in Nashville, the brothers Davidson
demonstrate superb instrumental
chops (between them they play
banjo, mandolin and fi ddle),
and they sing, both solo and in
(brotherly) harmony, like bluegrass
angels! Their backup musicians
complement their sound superbly – I
guess that’s why you go to Nashville
to record.
Of particular note is the haunting
dobro playing of Rob Icks, although
all the musicianship is immaculate
throughout the whole CD.
Then, just to prove that the lads
are not just one trick ponies, they
slip into a beautiful instrumental
swing number (Tipsy Gypsy) that
would not be out of place on a
Stephane Grapelli album.
A quick squiz at their website
(www.davidsonbrothers.com)
reveals a string of instrumental,
vocal, performing and songwriting
awards, not to mention appearances
in person and on TV throughout
Australia and the USA.
And if it all goes pearshaped,
they’re both studying at tertiary level
for non-musical careers! This album
shows clearly that contemporary
Australian bluegrass is in safe
hands.
Listen and enjoy yourself
immensely.
