The roots-music hothouse that East Nashville has become is popping out some tangible benefits these days. The latest evidence is the newly revamped Bearfoot, which has emerged from a rocky reorganizing with arguably more strength than ever. Alaska transplants Angela Oudean (fiddle) and Jason Norris (mandolin) -- both founding members -- cleverly recruited fellow Alaskan Todd Grebe (guitar) and then went the extra mile by joining forces with singer/songwriter Nora Jane Struthers and her bassist, P.J. George. That's a lot of talent in one place, with a boatload of rootsy original material, singers capable of taking harmonies in any of several directions and just enough instrumental virtuosity to keep the music moving along. The old Bearfoot was picking up steam, and Struthers is fresh off a well-received debut album and some high-visibility appearances, so there's a chance the combo's got the goods to get a sweet deal further down the road.
