Chris Hillman And Herb Pedersen On Mountain Stage
Loading the player ...
Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen make their second appearance on Mountain Stage
, recorded live on the campus of the North House Folk School in Grand Marais, Minn. As members of The Byrds
, The Dillards, The Flying Burrito Brothers and the Desert Rose Band, Hillman and Pedersen have been part of the fabric of American music for nearly half a century. In the '80s, the pair helped define the sound of modern country-rock in the Desert Rose Band, and by the mid-'90s the two were performing together as an acoustic duo.
Their latest project, At Edward's Barn,
continues their long-running association with country and bluegrass. Their Mountain Stage
set draws from their remarkable careers, including the iconic "Turn, Turn, Turn" and the Pedersen-penned road song "Wait a Minute," which helped define the sound of bluegrass band The Seldom Scene in the early '70s. They close with a haunting version of the Byrds classic "Eight Miles High."
