One of the most vital aspects of Bluegrass music is feeling, sometimes referred to as soul. This fine band, Bluestone, captures this elusive and all too rare quality on their latest project, What Goes On. Based in southern Pennsylvania, about 50 miles north of Baltimore, MD, Bluestone brings together a group of veteran musicians from a part of the country rich in Bluegrass music heritage for their latest album, What Goes On.

Bluestone derives its name from the blues in bluegrass music and the stone in the former Keystone band name. Bluestone formed two decades ago when Dick Laird and Carroll Swam, members of the southern York county band Keystone, joined forces with Dick's two sons, Heath and Jeff Laird, and veterans, banjoist Tom Neal and violinist Jon Glik, known as “Baltimore Jonny”.

Recently joined by veteran Dobro player Russ Hooper, this hard-driving veteran bluegrass band brings together musicians who have played with some of the best including Del McCoury, Jimmy Martin, Cliff Waldron and Bill Harrell. Firmly grounded in traditional bluegrass, Bluestone's music incorporates gospel, country, blues, swing, and folk influences.

Lead singer Carroll Swam's emotive vocal style is a major factor in conveying a soulful quality to their music. His original piece " Jarrettsville" follows the example of great songwriting: a heartfelt ballad with a sincere regional influence.

Banjo master Tom Neals' music deserves special recognition. He brings an entire catalog of traditional and contemporary styles to the bands sound.

Mandolinist Dick Laird contributes a wide variety of vocal parts. Whether it's lead, tenor, baritone or bass vocals, he delivers them all with a talented touch.

Two outstanding musicians from the Baltimore area Jon Glik (Fiddle) and Russ Hooper (Dobro) offer distinctive instrumental touches to Bluestone's lively sound. In finest Bluegrass father/ son tradition, Dick Lairds' sons Heath and Jeff round out the group on bass and guitar respectively and respectfully.

A major part of any group’s sound is their choice of material. In addition to some original compositions they have selected songs from a wide range of writers including Red Allen, Gordon Lightfoot and John Lennon.

So here's an enjoyable example of Bluegrass soul, accurately captured and ably delivered. Bluestone's music plays well on the ears and lands firmly in the heart.
