Louisville based, folk singer/song-writer, John Gage, is releasing a brand new original tune, “Holy Road” today, a collaboration with long time friend, Aaron Bibelhauser. The uptempo bluegrass song that transports the listener into an uplifting, traditional, old-timey euphoria. The delightful lyrics, harmonies, and musical arrangement will leave a smile on your face and song in your heart.
“Kentucky songwriter, folksinger, and de facto spiritual counselor to his musical brothers and sisters, John Gage has spent over five decades serving our community here in Louisville, KY. From hosting longtime radio show, Kentucky Homefront, to presiding over countless marriages, and memorials for those we love, John’s service reaches far beyond the age old craft of combining lyric and melody to share his truth. Co-creating this record with John is truly among the most meaningful experiences of my lifetime. Much more than merely a collection of songs, this project has become a scrapbook detailing our journey, accentuating the trials and treasures encountered by humanity within the circles of our lives. The path we travel, as caretakers of our Mother Earth, and of one another, is a sacred one. It’s a “Holy Road”, and it’s one we travel together.”
Personnel on the recording are:
John Gage - vocal
Aaron Bibelhauser - guitar, backing vocal
Jeff Guernsey - fiddle
Michael Cleveland - mandolin
Steve Cooley - banjo
Chris Douglas - bass
Adam Bibelhauser - backing vocal
