Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice

Watch Video | Facebook | Twitter | | With Poor Boy's Pleasure, their sixth album overall and first for Mountain Fever Records, Junior Sisk & Ramblers Choice have perhaps outdone themselves. From beginning to end - from the opening barn-burner of a moonshine song, "Lonnie Ray," to the hard-driving rendition of the classic "Ain't Gonna Work Tomorrow" that closes the album - the multi-award winning group never lets up. This is traditional bluegrass the way it should be played. | Since the album's release in May 2016, it has already racked up quite a number of accolades. After debuting at number 2 on the Billboard Bluegrass chart, it has made several reappearances in the Top 10. Poor Boy's Pleasure has also worked its way up the Bluegrass Unlimited National Bluegrass Survey, having spent five straight months on the chart as of November 2016. Five songs from the album have made appearances in the Bluegrass Today Weekly Top 20. Lead single "Longneck Blues," a rollicking duet with singer-songwriter Ronnie Bowman penned by Mike O'Reilly, has found favor with broadcasters, fans, and industry leaders. It debuted at number one on the Bluegrass Today weekly chart, and has consistently made appearances in the Top 20 since its release. In September 2016, the song reached number one on the Bluegrass Unlimited National Bluegrass Survey. "Longneck Blues" also won Recorded Event of the Year at the 2016 International Bluegrass Music Awards. | | Junior Sisk... Read More →
