In Their Words: “The Piedmont Melody Makers joined forces when I heard Cliff Hale and Alice Gerrard singing in Alice’s kitchen in Durham, North Carolina. It didn’t take much time for Jim Watson to join the fray, and the next thing I knew, we were playing shows. Wonderful World Outside started as an experiment that had to become a full-length recording. It was all so natural — the destiny was predetermined. I think our love of harmony singing and songwriting that is nurtured by the honest emotions inherent in old-time country songs provides our template for musical expression. Alice Gerrard is an old-time and bluegrass music Athena, full of wisdom and power. The fellers are just trying to keep up. We love a good song, and we want to breathe life into it.” –– Chris Brashear, fiddler
