The Ò5-StringÓ label out of West Chester, Pa. is a relatively new company that has put out several very nice old-time discs, and this is another one of them (so is the Jane Rothfield CD reviewed elsewhere). Mr. Newberry is a fine old-time musician who has chosen to feature his banjo playing on this 20 track production. He sings a few songs here in a pleasant, unpretentious manner, and he includes four originals in a program that is mostly devoted to his versions of some fine traditional pieces like ROCKY ISLAND, BREAKING UP CHRISTMAS, ROUSTABOUT, REUBEN, SANDY BOYS, COUNTRY BLUES and LOST GANDER. Newberry, who now lives in North Carolina and is a member of the group Big Medicine, does a fine, tasteful job here on a very enjoyable album. RESURRECTION DAY, RACHEL, RAMBLING HOBO, IDA RED, etc.
