Bob Plunkert | Westminster, MD United States | 11/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Adams County Banjo" is one of the finest newer generation banjo projects around. Tom is a veteran sideman for heavy hitters such as Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys, The Johnson Mountain Boys, Lynn Morris, and Rhonda Vincent. The material is deeply rooted in traditional Earl Scruggs style banjo, yet with Tom's unique hard driving style, gives it a flavor all its own. Includes full band instrumentals, as well as banjo and fiddle duets. Accompaniment by David McGlaughlin, Eddie Stubbs, and others. HIGHLY recommended for the experienced bluegrass listener, or for the newcomer!!!"
Kickin Scruggs Style Pickin

"It has been said that Tom Adams is the heir apparent to the throne of 3 finger style banjo pickin. This CD makes it obvious. Nobody today has the same combination of speed, timing, excitement and great taste in their pickin style. This CD is a worthy successor to Earl's "foggy mountain banjo". All songs are performed without lyrics in a fast, clean, exciting Scruggs style. The songs are ones you probably already know but Adams breaths fresh life into all of them. If you like bluegrass banjo, you'll love this CD."
Excellent Old Timey Banjo!

"Tom Adams is a banjo player that is easy to overlook. As a banjo and mandolin player, I can't deny what I hear on his two CD's. He is one heck of a banjo player, and I sincerely hope he puts out future albums. This is Earl Scruggs style finger pickin' with an active thumb down stroke. When I want to play along with a CD, I usually reach for his first album. I skip the two slow tracks, but play all of the good ol' pickin' tunes. "I Saw The Light" continues to elicit musical religious feelings beyond the four walls of any church. "Bilt That Cabbage Down" is a "bilt that banjo player down" workout. I invariably repeat on both tracks until my family or neighbors go nuts. If you are building a Bluegrass Collection, this one is a gem and a classic."
