Southern Trace Presents: Ricky J Taylor & The Live Roots Ensemble
Ricky j Taylor and the Live Roots Ensemble original’s music is multi-genre and includes elements of folk, traditional country, bluegrass and even chamber music. Based in Huntsville, Alabama, Ricky’s songs are grounded in the southern traditions where music is often sincere and born from matters of the heart. Ricky has toured with noted artists including bluegrass great Claire Lynch.
Their original songs often reflect a universal search for meaning by illuminating the human condition, capturing emotions that are sincere, cathartic, sad or uplifting. All are expressed through highly articulate lyrics and musical arrangements.
They also feature traditional instrumental tunes performed by no less than two Tennessee state fiddle champions and the national champion Buck dancer. Group members have a combined 22 notable instrumental awards, and a couple members have also been featured guest artists in orchestras.
