Spirit Family Reunion’s new album ‘Ride Free’ has debuted at number six on Billboard’s Bluegrass albums chart to raves from Rolling Stone, Relix, the Bluegrass Situation, Rhode Island Public Radio, and beyond. Here’s what we’re reading:

 

“Old-time rootsy saunter… Come for the unchained gang vocals; stay for the combination of tremolo-laden electric guitar and backwoods banjo. Ride on.”

– Robert Crawford, Rolling Stone Country, August 19, 2019

 

“An old-timey, lively feel fortified by a more extensive use of drums and electric instruments alongside banjo, fiddle, washboard, mandolin and SFR’s trademark harmonies.”

– Gary Graff, Billboard, June 24, 2019

 

“Spirit Family Reunion made an album that’s a soothing balm… The band’s contagious collective energy buzzes loud on Ride Free [and] feels like being at a house show with all of your friends.”

– Laura Stanley, No Depression, August 8, 2019

 

“A simple reminder of the most basic concepts in life — kindness and generosity.”

– Kelly McCartney, Folk Alley, August 9, 2019

 

“Earthy, traditional folk.”

– Brooklyn Vegan, August 10, 2019
