The Gillian Brothers - Fiddle and Flattop

Playing hoedowns for square dances for fifteen years has been a major influence in the development of the “Gillian” style. Certainly, this gave the brothers ample time and opportunity to develop new chord structures and variations. As a consequence, the Gillian Brothers, unlike many musicians, are not “locked into” a regional mold or style of playing. As you listen to this album you will be able to hear traces of Southeastern-, Texas-, and Swing-Style fiddling; and bluegrass and old-time guitar stylings. In short the Gillians do not feel compelled to play in a particular style whether it be for contests judges or concerts. They play to please and satisfy themselves, and in so doing they have opened up an entire new vista of listening pleasure for their audiences.
