This years summer bluegrass series closes out with a double bill that neatly illustrates at least one dimension of the genres breadth these days. Dailey & Vincents music is polished to a high gloss on their recent sophomore release, Brothers From Different Mothers (Rounder), and zeroes in on razor-sharp harmonies that almost always feature Jamie Daileys high, clear tenor. The SteelDrivers, hard at work on their own second disc for Rounder, focus with equal intensity on Chris Stapletons rough drawl. But theres plenty of high-octane and finely wrought picking either way, and set lists filled with excellent songsindeed, were it not for the latters propensity to write dark, the odds are pretty fair that his name would have already appeared among the formers songwriter credits. As it is, the show serves up two sides of a bluegrass coin about as clearlyand as wellas the job can be done.
