This spring Paul Kovac recorded a Bluegrass CD titled, Ohio Bluegrass: From The Appalachian Plateau.
The record was recorded by David Mayfield at his studio in Akron, OH., and he performed on mandolin/vocals as well. The rest of the band consisted of Bill Lestock-Fiddle, Kevin Johnson-Bass, & Ronnie Bonkowski-guitar/vocals. Paul plays banjo, sing lead & composed 7 of the 11 songs.
This show will feature the band playing songs from the CD, as well as some Bluegrass favorites of ours. We were all born within 50 miles of one another, thus the CD title.
Paul Kovac, bandleader/singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist, has put together a top notch band for the recording of his newest album, “Ohio Bluegrass: From the Appalachian Plateau”. It’s a return to his Bluegrass roots, after years of recording Americana Roots music, Honky-Tonk, and performing with singer-songwriters.
Kovac has recorded 14 albums of his own, and has contributed to countless others. He’s performed with Hall of Famers, Chet Atkins & Bill Monroe, and produced & performs in an instructional guitar DVD with Hee Haw’s, Roy Clark.
This show features the best Ohio Bluegrass musicians, playing a crop of new songs, classic Bluegrass favorites, and a few holiday songs of the season .. Bluegrass style!
