Listening to this song, suddenly I heard my dead brother playing the mandolin and my dead friend Vicki Jo playing the fiddle ... and cried. I hope they're playing together in heaven. I miss them both.
 
Memories can sometimes be painful but also sweet. :-)

I'm Russian, but sometimes it seems like I was born in America 'cause I really groove on this sort of music/ In short it's cool!
A bluegrass yo-yo? Cool!
Checked it out from the library, trying to give myself a a little culture; bleh
Is it Chris Thiele on vocals and mandolin? Sounds a lot like Nickel Creek.
Aoife O’Donovan from Crooked Still, another band worth checking out.

I've been loving all the tracks I've heard off this album :)
Hey, if you're YoYo, you can even stick your fiddle-bow in the ear of another player to see if it bothers him (it didn't) without getting a swift kick in the goolies.

and it was worth the wait.  A MOST excellent album.

this whole album is very cool
I heard an interview with them on NPR recently. They sounded like a bunch of goofballs, it was great. Apparently they play sitting very close together, practically touching. At one point, Mr. Ma stuck his bow in somebody's ear while they were playing, just to throw 'em off their game. Nobody missed a beat, of course. They trade licks back and forth constantly too, following each other off into flights of fancy. Incredible musicians, and absolutely 100% unpretentious about it. Amazing.

I was just wondering who did that vocal.  Thanks.  Great song.  I'd like to hear more of that release.  Saw YoYo et al promoting it on Colbert Report.  They did a coupla nice songs from it.

Oh, that explains it. I was almost going to ask if this wasn't really Crooked Still. Not only the vocals but the instrumentation sound a lot like songs on the Some Strange Country album.
I like this better than I thought I would
