Byron Berline (fiddle, vocal, backing vocal) + guests


1. AllMusic - Ken Dryden
Byron Berline's Fiddle & a Song is a star-studded affair with numerous guests, for the most part recorded in 1995. It's hard to beat "Sally Goodin," a traditional bluegrass favorite, with veterans Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs prominently featured. But there are other worthwhile tracks as well; ex-Sundance member Vince Gill sings lead and plays guitar on "Rose of Old Kentucky" and "Sweet Memory Waltz," while Mason Williams wrote "Skippin' Along on Top" in honor of Berline and sings lead in this humorous ditty as well. Berline is even joined by the Sherman Oaks Presbyterian Church Quartet (where Berline and his wife are longtime members, with Bette Berline playing piano and singing soprano) for a heartfelt treatment of the hymn "Were You There?" Of course, the leader's magical fiddle is in the center of every track, and bluegrass fans should consider this one of Byron Berline's finest recordings.
