Rounding Third

By Bluestreak

PEI Music Award-winning group Bluestreak released their new album, Rounding Third, on November 3. 

The album contains 15 original songs in the acoustic blend of bluegrass, folk, country and gospel that Bluestreak is known for. The members of the group are Larry Campbell on lead vocal, guitar and mandolin, Roger Wightman on vocals and banjo, Marcella Richard on vocals and guitar, Peter Richards on dobro, and David Blue on bass.

Rounding Third follows in the tradition of their two earlier albums, First Impression and Second Nature, telling stories of Island life, such as: a son leaving home (“Mother’s Love”), remembering Dad (“The Bluegrass Singer”), remembering Mom (“Voice of an Angel”), getting through a long winter (“March On”), getting married (“Better Together”), regaining faith (“Open Again”), inheriting a bass played in Don Messer’s band (“This Old Bass”), and surviving a hurricane (“I Won’t Forget Fiona”). And they are true stories. Mostly.

Produced by Peter Richards and Bluestreak, Rounding Third was recorded by Larry Campbell, mixed by Richards, and mastered by Jon Matthews at The Sound Mill.

CDs and digital downloads of the complete album are available online at bluestreakpei.com

Bluestreak will launch the album at 7:30 pm on December 21 at the Irish Cultural Centre (BIS Hall) at 582 North River Road in Charlottetown.
