Published Reviews for "White Turtle Dove"

 

"a fairly traditional style of bluegrass, though interspersed with

interesting, ear-catching twists." - BW, Bluegrass Unlimited, April 2016.  Click HERE for full review

"…a fine collection of original songs with a mix of bluegrass instrumentals and country sentiments …an engaging instrumental band, stellar vocals and  an eye-catching album cover with Rick riding a white dove cowboy style!"                     - Brenda Hough,  Bluegrass Breakdown, March 2016.  https://www.cbaweb.org/News/Breakdown

"Listening to WHITE TURTLE DOVE leaves no doubt that Rick loves this music. Writing new songs using the same 3 or 4 chords and having them stand on their own is not an easy task. Mr. Ednie should be proud of that accomplishment ...The Rick Ednies of the world are the people that keep putting coins in the music meter. - Marty Warburton  Prescription Bluegrass, Nov 2015.  Click HERE for full review     

White Turtle Dove one-sheet

One-Sheet text for "White Turtle Dove"  

Rick Ednie is a songwriter and musician from Santa Cruz, CA.  Rick performs Bluegrass and Americana as both a solo artist and with bands in the Santa Cruz and South Bay regions including Rick Ednie’s Bluegrass Roundup in the bluegrass genre and Heathen Hill in the Americana genre.

Rick released two solo albums in the first half of 2015 with “White Turtle Dove” being the most recent (June 2015).
 
Produced by Rick Ednie and Joe Weed, "White Turtle Dove" introduces fans to some of Rick's contemporary Bluegrass originals. The album includes nine original tracks featuring Rick on guitar, mandolin, and vocals with an all-star lineup of well known Santa Cruz regional and California based bluegrass power hitters including Mike Witcher on dobro, Luke Abbott on fiddle, Bradley Richter on mandolin, and Jason Lampel on Banjo.

White Turtle Dove is a contemporary bluegrass album with several fast paced tunes with active breaks and tight two and three part harmony vocals.  The album also features a waltz (track four) and an instrumental (track nine). You'll Be My Darlin' (track three) has an old-timey feel, while “Cabin by the Creek” (track eight) has an alt-folk/country sound, but still holds true to bluegrass making "White Turtle Dove" a great crossover album for both Bluegrass and Americana fans alike.

A Fine Place to Start one-sheet

One-sheet text for "A Fine Place to Start"

Rick Ednie is a songwriter and musician from Santa Cruz, CA. Rick performs Bluegrass and Americana as both a solo artist and with bands in the Santa Cruz and South Bay regions including Rick Ednie’s Bluegrass Roundup in the bluegrass genre and Heathen Hill in the Americana genre.

Rick rereleased his first album under the new title "A Fine Place to Start" (May 2015). The album originally debuted in 2001 under a different title and was remixed in late 2014 with new instruments and vocals remastered with the original tracks from 2001.

Produced by Rick Ednie, “A Fine Place to Start” is a collection of original contemporary Folk and Americana ballads about childhood living, heartbreak, and affirmation. The album includes eight tracks featuring Rick on guitar, mandolin, harmonica, and vocals, with Rob Horgan on banjo (of the Bay Area Bluegrass band Sidesaddle and Co.), Devon McClive on cello (of San Francisco's The Sam Chase Band), Matt Bohn on acoustic bass, and session players on drums, piano, and electric bass.

This album is a unique and rich expression of innocence with an essence of personal reflection. These endearing qualities are evident in songs such as the title track “A Fine Place to Start“, "I’m Not Buyin’”, and “I’m Gone, Goodbye”.
