Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

The elegance and quiet class that Alan Bibey brings to his mandolin playing has also earned him a reputation as one of bluegrass’s most immaculate dressers, and he’s widely known as one of the nicest guys in the business, too. But he’s also risen to the challenge of being the lone remaining original member of a band that started out as a partnership, taking charge and shaping the talents of more recent members into a crisp, stylish kind of contemporary bluegrass that’s smooth and flavorful. The quintet’s heading into the studio soon, but in the meantime, Bibey’s released The Mandolin Chronicles, a sweet album of duets with IIIrd Tyme Out’s Wayne Benson that ought to win some well-deserved recognition. More dramatic players may draw the attention of neophytes, but aficionados know that Bibey’s a keeper whose influence has yet to be fully acknowledged — and that Grasstowne provides the perfect setting.
