John Mitchell (Ross-Shire, Scotland) and Sofie Jonsson (Dalarna, Sweden) share a passion for traditional/contemporary Celtic music and its role in influencing the bluegrass and country genres of American music. Scots and Irish melodies undoubtedly surface within bluegrass breakdowns. Likewise bluegrass and country songs seem to take their form from the big balladry and sheanachie traditions of the British Isles.
”Western Highways”, John and Sofie’s debut album, is a collection of traditional and contemporary songs and melodies. Featuring a talented group of musicians on vocals, fiddle, viola, guitars, lap steel, banjo, mandolin, pedal steel, bass and drums, Western Highways is a musical journey across the Atlantic.
