Cherryholmes II: Black and White

This bluegrass family act’s self-titled 2005 debut earned them a surprise Entertainer of the Year win at the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards, so expectations for the follow-up are high. Cherryholmes doesn’t mess with a winning formula too much on this sophomore effort, as the members ably trade off lead vocals (banjo player Cia remains the standout) and vibrant instrumental turns. The lyrical themes are traditional bluegrass—religion and death are well represented—but Cherryholmes’ modern edge lends color to Black and White.
