Matt Brown & Greg Reish says
Matt Brown (fiddle) & Greg Reish (guitar) perform old-time instrumentals from rural America. Their brand new duo album, “Speed of the Plow,” comprises square dance tunes, rags, blues, and haunting melodies reinterpreted from the solo fiddle repertory. Sources and inspirations include Virginia fiddler Emmett Lundy, Oklahoma’s Uncle Dick Hutchison, West Virginia-born Ed Haley—whom John Hartford championed—North Carolina’s Benton Flippen, and many more. Co-produced and engineered by Dave Sinko (Punch Brothers, Béla Fleck, Hot Rize), “Speed of the Plow” showcases Matt & Greg’s versatility as they pay homage to the rich tradition of old-time duets. Bryan Sutton says of the album, “It’s refreshing to hear these tunes delivered by true craftsmen playing with a conviction that allows the melodies to really shine. Way to go Matt and Greg!”
