When two masterful performers come together in the studio, the results can be magic, and that’s certainly true of the latest single from Organic Records’ Jeremy Garrett, a blistering duet that features the talented fiddler/singer/songwriter and his labelmate, guitarist Jon Stickley. Written by Garrett and acclaimed songwriter John Pennell (“Every Time You Say Goodbye,” “Meat And Potatoes Man”) during the former’s years-long residence i
Blue skies, incredible musicians, great friends, and a postcard backdrop were all on tap at this much needed mountain music festival. Todd Sheaffer, lead singer and guitar player with Railroad Earth, headlined the first day of the festival. Music echoed through the valley as laser lights bounced off the hills in perfect harmony.

With a stellar set of musicians drawn largely from the rosters of Mountain Home Music Company and Organic Records, Bluegrass At The Crossroads, a new series of special collaborations, kicks off on a high-energy note with “Start Walking Back.” A slice of down-to-earth advice set to a hard-edged beat, the song was written by singer and fiddle player Jeremy Garrett — an Organic artist and a member of the Infamous Stringdusters — and series pr
