Besides playing banjo with Crooked Still, a group of radical young bluegrass innovators, Greg Liszt also leads the Deadly Gentlemen—which describes its style as epic folk and grasscore. You can translate that to mean thrilling harmonies, a bit of shouting and foot-stomping rhythms—audible on its 2013 LP, Roll Me, Tumble Me. Here, bluegrass guitar phenom Michael Daves joins in the fun. Mandolin-clarinet marvel Andy Statman and twangy Texas singer-songwriter Sarah Jarosz open.
