James King has been quite ill recently, and the effects seem to have had a positive outcome for him. James looks healthy, and is singing better than I've heard him in years. He also brought a strong band to Gettysburg, pickers who knew how to pick and were familiar with his music. It's a real delight to see and hear James feeling better and performing so well.
Staying together as a unit for seventeen years makes a huge difference in the quality and productivity of a great band. Blue Highway has managed this and created a distinguished body of work, mostly using original songs written by members of the band. Every position is strong and the synergy makes them great.
