From performing alongside the likes of Doyle Lawson, Ricky Skaggs and Vern Gosdin, Lou Reid has shared the stage with some of the best in bluegrass and country music. Today, in addition to being a member of the Seldom Scene, Lou fronts his own band, Lou Reid and Carolina. Their latest album, Callin’ Me Back Home, hit shelves in April and promises to be a great addition to the band’s catalog.The ten-song album features superior musicianship from the four members of the band: Lou on guitar and mandolin, Shannon Slaughter on guitar, Trevor Watson on banjo, and Lou’s wife Christy Reid on acoustic bass. In addition, several special guest musicians add to the album’s sound, including Neil Worf (drums), Mike Auldridge (pedal steel), Ron Stewart (fiddle), Rob Ickes (dobro), and Tony Rice (lead and rhythm guitar). Several of these instruments help to create a more modern, country sound, especially on the album’s closing tune, Big Old Red Guitar, which features drums, pedal steel, and Rice on lead guitar.
