Robin and Linda Williams
In The Company Of Strangers

Sugar Hill Records

Husband and wife team of Robin and Linda Williams have been one of the mainstays on the bluegrass/Americana music scene for the past decade, and have created some of the most listenable music of the genre. This latest collection is their finest yet, highlighted by fun tunes like "Bar Band In Hillbilly Heaven," "The Perfect Country Song," and the episodic "Some Peculiar Beast." Mary Chapin Carpenter makes a guest vocal appearance on two tunes and the Williams continue to pay tribute in song to their immortal namesake by covering the Hank Williams classic "Cold, Cold Heart" ... Linda Williams delivers a crushing version of the song.
