The Price Sisters’ self-titled Rebel debut features six traditional bluegrass tunes and one new song in the traditional vein. With their lovely harmonies, The Price Sisters add their own touch to each of the numbers. In a nod to Monroe, the sisters recorded an outstanding version of The One I Love is Gone, a song he wrote specifically for the folk duo Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard. In addition, they perform a rousing rendition of Get Up John, his well known, blazing instrumental. It’s Happening Again is the new song on the album yet sounds as if it was written over fifty years ago. The final song on the album is What Does the Deep Sea Say, an old folk ballad most often associated with Doc Watson. The album was recorded in Nashville, TN by Grammy winning producer Bil VornDick. Additional instrumentation and vocals were provided by special guests Mike Bub (bass), Dustin Benson (guitar), Charlie Cushman (banjo), Ronnie McCoury (guitar) and Alan Bartram (harmony vocals).
