This album full of well-known material, highlighted with unique originals that any fan of bluegrass music will enjoy.

This "incredibly hot" banjo project must have been filled with jet fuel the way it took off after I started playing it
Ross's new album is on fire!!! I listened on my car CD player and forgot which road I was traveling

The disc IS incredible ... Fantastic banjo tracks brilliantly played! Really enjoy the music Ross, thanks very much. If only I could play half as good as you one day I would be very happy!Karl
Every inch of Let's Kick It is exactly what its title implies, true heel-kickin' Appalachian joy, unrestrained delight in zesty melodies
i was amazed at how hard driving this Album is. It is a pure joy to listen too
There are two Nickerson originals featured and he proves to be as good a composer as he is a picker.
