The new CD combines Elie Wiesel-style narratives with the wickedly funny irreverance of Lenny Bruce and the fast-paced twang of Bill Monroe in a way that begs the question: who let Adam Brodsky near a bluegrass band? This smart, funny album, part jew-grass/part antifolk/part pure brodsky, pushes the frontiers of folk music and shines a light on Brodsky's superior grasp of history (or at least the history channel), his clever songwriting and his deep respect for the roots of traditional folk music.
