DOYLE LAWSON AND QUICKSILVER
Doyle Lawson, singer, bandleader and mandolin player made a name for himself in the Country Gentlemen and with Jimmy Martin and J. D. Crow. Then in 1979 he went out on his own as Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver. They quickly became one of the leading bands in bluegrass. Many bluegrass stars have gotten their start as Lawson continues to surround himself with talented young musicians. He has stuck to traditional bluegrass and always features gospel, especially the a capella harmony quartet singing that he first heard his father perform. In fact, many of his albums are all gospel and those that aren't feature a number of gospel songs. His latest collection is Gospel Parade (Sugar Hill).
