Again, not a bluegrass artist. However, at one level alone Gretchen Peters is worth the attention of anyone who sings with an instrument. During her songs her guitar work is not just formulaic accompaniment: what the guitar and the voice are doing make up a musical whole. This is not as widely done as it might be.
