"Maybe call it Blue Age music, since it is an instrumental style that lifts lives up, showing a place where the dark clouds part and the endless land and blue skies become one." -Bill Bentley (The Morton Report)
Wildwood Calling marks Ramsey's first all-instrumental album in a 30+ year career as an iconic guitar player. For those who might recognize Bo Ramsey by his association with artists like Lucinda Williams, Greg Brown, Kevin Gordon, Pieta Brown, Charlie Parr and others, his new music is the perfect introduction to someone who always listens and plays with his own sonic vision in full motion .
Not surprisingly, the list of Ramsey’s accolades is long: including Grammy-Award Winning Guitar Player, 2 Time Grammy Nominated Producer, Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and Iowa Blues Hall of Famer. But above all, Ramsey is a proud card-carrying member of his own hall of fame, which is the one where he chases the sounds in his head and his heart. He is always looking for a way to wrestle them into a recording so he can share that love of music with friends and strangers alike. Wildwood Calling is an album for the ages, and the perfect calling card for anyone with an interest in hearing the past, the present and the future rolled into one. Don't miss the album release show August 6th @ Lower Guitar Town Festival in St. Paul, MN.
