about

Not since the haunting and powerful music of Kentucky balladeers such as Roscoe Holcomb and Pete Steele has there been an equal in beauty, force and command of the Kentucky ballad and banjo tradition— until now. Brett Ratliff carries on this legacy in a way that only an east Kentucky native could with his new album Cold Icy Mountain. Filled with soulful banjo ballads and rousing string band tunes, this album will have listeners dancing and crying—, sometimes at the same time. Cold Icy Mountain brings chilling ballads that make the hair stand up on the back of your neck, while knock-down, foot-stomping banjo songs will have you up out of your chair.
