I want to buy some bluegrass. Give me some must have cds.

I'm also interested in female vocalists because they sound better than dudes most of the time in any genre. I kind of want something like Nickel Creek but without Chris Thile singing. Ever. Or Crooked Still but more up beat and with more improv.

Hating on Chris Thile, clearly you don't appreciate the Lighthouse's Tale
My God, it's full of stars!

Look, when you have Sarah Watkins available why would you let anyone else near a mic?

Chris's talents are better served when he's letting his instrument do the singing.
