Make sure to get your tickets now to see music legends Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby on tour with Kentucky Thunder!  Fellow friends and GRAMMY winners go back out on the road to collaborate with Skaggs’ razor-sharp band Kentucky Thunder on brand new tunes and traditional bluegrass classics.  Without any restrictions, their music is as fascinating and masterful as the two stars that created it.  The pair blends songs drawn from deep roots in mountain music, adding piano and Hornsby’s inimitable songwriting to Skaggs’ instrumental core of mandolin, guitar, bass, fiddle and banjo into a musical feast.  In a not-to-miss show, Skaggs and Hornsby promise to kick up a storm with their mix of high-lonesome harmonies, full throttle bluegrass picking, and improvisational piano.

RICKY SKAGGS, one of Bluegrass and Country music’s most recognized ambassadors and BRUCE HORNSBY, one of Pop’s most talented pianists and singer-songwriters are reuniting for this one-of-a-kind show. On August 20, 2013 the two music legends came together to produce a live album, titled CLUCK OL’ HEN (Skaggs Family Records). Bluegrass treasures and lively expanded hits wait to be discovered on this fresh collection of songs from the masterful duo of Skaggs and riginally recorded when the two music icons hit the tour circuit in support of their first collaborative album, Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby. Hornsby’s spirited piano brings a new dimension to these songs, with electrifying solos and improvisation thrown in the mix of Skaggs, Hornsby and Skaggs’ band, Kentucky Thunder.

“We recorded quite a few of the live performances from our tour and came up with a really great CD,” says Skaggs. “It’s a great merging of two different styles. Listening to this live CD just reminded me of how much fun we had touring together. Every show was a gift.” Hornsby notes, “I’ve been fortunate to be a part of scores of collaborations through the years. Along with my time with the Grateful Dead, and the various Spike Lee projects, I consider the long time association with Ricky to be the deepest and most satisfying collaboration of them all. Hopefully this record captures the sound of a bunch of guys having a great time playing music together. That’s what it sounds like to me.”

Without any restrictions, the music is as fascinating and masterful as the two stars who create it. The pair blends songs drawn from deep roots in mountain music, adding piano and Hornsby’s inimitable songwriting to Skaggs’ instrumental core of mandolin, guitar, bass, fiddle and banjo into a musical feast. Of course, classic Bluegrass is fully represented with three Bill Monroe tunes, including the fast and furious “Bluegrass Breakdown.” Punctuating this release is a vibrantly expansive version of Hornsby’s early hit “The Way It Is” and a performance of “White Wheeled Limousine,” and to sum up the freespirited nature of their collaborations, Skaggs and Hornsby joyfully present the vintage fiddle tune “Cluck Ol’ Hen.” Skaggs and Hornsby kick up a storm with their mix of high-lonesome harmonies, full throttle Bluegrass pickin’ and improvisational piano.
