Delia Bell & Bill Grant portrait Singers Delia Bell and Bill Grant formed a partnership over a decade before they began to record... Their music is the hallmark of country/bluegrass authenticity, an unendingly rich repertoire of sweet, simple heartsongs sung in a straightforward, soulful, unaffected style. Every record they've made is a gem: here's a quick look at their work.

Delia Bell & Bill Grant "Rollin' " (Rebel, 1981)
A classic set of heartsongs and weepers from this well-loved, but little remembered folk/country/bluegrass duo. If you like the sweet, traditionally-oriented stuff Emmylou Harris did early in her career, you might want to check this out as well. Part of Rebel's ambitious program to make old records available for download... Yeah, I wish they'd put 'em out on CD, too, but well... welcome to the brave new world!

Delia Bell & Bill Grant "Dreaming" (Rounder, 1997)
Traditionalist bluegrass with a country tinge, carrying the torch of the 'Fifties commercial bluegrass heyday. This is a swell collection of this duo's work, originally recorded in the 1970s and '80s. It's great stuff -- one sweet melodic heartsong after another, with solid, sometimes pleasantly ragged picking and soulful, old-school vocals. Recommended!
