Straight ahead banjo playing featuring Pinecastle Recording Artis Ross Nickerson and members of the band, Blue Highway, Rob Ickes on Dobro, Shawn Lane Mandolin/Fiddle, Tim Stafford, Guitar and Wayne Taylor Bass. Engineered by Scott Vestal. 14 songs in all.
Let's Kick It features fast tempos, explosive solos and some great new bluegrass music. The band rips up some great Bill Monroe standards, swings Lady Be Good and drives home other standards like Little Maggie along with Nickerson originals, Roundhouse and Feeling Low.
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
