Spring Creek "Way Up On A Mountain" (2009)

There's something that I love about Colorado bluegrass bands.  They are informed by the tradition, but not too tightly bound by it.  Perhaps its just the strong influence of the Hot Rize guys, but there's a playful approach to the genre. 

Spring Creek is a wonderful neo-traditional band.  They incorporate some elements of Western Swing, but still stay true to the roots of bluegrass, without feeling constrained by them.  Highly recommended.
