John Reischman recently released his new album, New Time and Old Acoustic, a collection of original tunes along with a few traditional selections, and he was joined by an impressive lineup of players, including Chris Eldridge, Todd Phillips, Nick Hornbuckle, Sharon Gilchrist, Mike Witcher, Alex Hargreaves, Trent Freeman, Alison DeGroot, and many others.
In this video, John plays his Jayson Bowerman Bambino octave mandolin on his new composition called “Horses of Dorrigo,” with Nick Hornbuckle on banjo and Trent Freeman on fiddle. The trio is playing in a pastoral wooded setting, which is appropriate given what John has to say about the tune in the liner notes to New Time and Old Acoustic: “This tune commemorates touring in Australia with my buddy, Eli West. One of the stops we made was at a great festival in Dorrigo, NSW. The place we stayed was in the country, and we had to drive through a pasture with horses freely roaming in it. The horses barely got out of the way of the car, but rather came right up and stuck their heads in the window! Full title is ‘The Friendly Horses of Dorrigo.’ ”
Great tune and great album! You can order New Time and Old Acoustic on Bandcamp!
