Time, by the bluegrass trio tha Greencards. Beautiful song. They have a sound similar to Nickel Creek and are worthy of our first selection for Song of the Week.

Album Description

When two of the most towering figures in popular music invite you out on tour, you must be doing something right. What The Greencards are doing right is making great music. That’s why Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson asked the band to perform on their national tour starting May 25.

One listen to the band’s upcoming sophomore album, Weather & Water, and it’s easy to hear why these musical giants are turning to The Greencards for tour support. The disc, which releases June 28 on Dualtone, is a modern acoustic masterpiece. The band produced the album and called on in-demand engineer Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek, Dolly Parton) to engineer it.

They also wrote nearly every song on it. The highlight of the album may well be the band’s own “Time.” This standout track mixes dreamy harmonies and a languid melody into a perfect rumination on the past. It’s alluring and addictive—a hallmark of The Greencards’ distinctive global brand of acoustic music.

For the uninitiated, one of the hottest bands in America is comprised of two Australians—mandolin player Kym Warner and bass player Carol Young—and a fiddle-playing Brit named Eamon McLoughlin.
