A certain loveliness creeps into many tunes by the modern bluegrass band Crooked Still because of their cross genre approach to arranging songs. To a certain extent, the group forgoes the standard instrumentation of bluegrass instead relying heavily on banjo, double bass, cello and the heavenly vocals of Aoife O'Donovan. Crooked Still celebrated their tenth anniversary late last year with the release of a seven song EP which melds nicely with the four full length recordings.
