Kickin Grass are special. Though their music hails from Appalachia, it drifts as much as it races, gentle melodic glow glimmering like twilight on a metal bumper. They're wonderfully talented players equal to those on the jamgrass circuit. They don't mind breaking out their "Pot Liquor" (essentially a two-and-a-half-minute jam), but they are dedicated more to songcraft. The arrangements are warm and energetic, with strains of bluegrass, Celtic, gospel and country. Those elements are just the icing. The cake itself is the vocals, particularly the harmonizing of the quintet's females, guitarist Lynda Dawson and fiddler Pattie Hopkins. —Chris Parker
