FELLER & HILL, “Here Come Feller & Hill…Again,” Blue Circle Records. 13 tracks.

Tom Feller is a nephew of Aubrey, Jerry, and Tom Holt, the backbone of the legendary Boys From Indiana. He’s worked with Redwing, the Larry Stephenson Band, Rhonda Vincent & the Rage, 3 Fox Drive and the Wildwood Valley Boys.

Chris Hill, a competitive clogger as well as a banjo player, has worked with the Wildwood Valley Boys, Gerald Evans & Paradise, the James King Band and Karl Shiflett & Big Country Show.

The two began exploring the possibilities of creating a band in 2010 and went on the road full time with their band, the Bluegrass Buckaroos, in 2013.

They’ve have created a sound that blends the classic country of the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s with bluegrass.

Feller’s “The Ballad of Buck and Don” is a tribute to the Bakersfield sound of Buck Owens and Don Rich — with a bluegrass beat.

There are a pair of Aubrey Holt songs — “Hey Baby” and “Here Comes Polly.”

And a couple of gospel songs — Joyce Rambo‘s “When Is He Coming Again” with Heather Berry-Mabe and Don Reno‘s “He’s Coming Back To Earth Again.”

Rhonda Vincent lends her vocal talents to Tom T. & Dixie Hall‘s “Tired of Losing You.” The Halls also wrote “The Government Blues” for the project.

From country music, Feller & Hill took Faron Young‘s “Forget The Past.”

From rock/soul, they borrowed Delaney & Bonnie‘s 1971 hit, “Never Ending Song of Love.”

Good album by a good new band.
