The first rule of showbidness: timing
Coincidence that Jeff and Sheri Easter are releasing a family-fest album drawing on her Lewis connections and the Easter name at precisely the time Charlotte Penhollow Ritchie leaves the group and Jeff and Sheri’s kids step into more prominent roles? (Chuck Peters reports that this is “said to be the richest collection of family and musical heritage,” but said by whom?
Jeff and Sheri? Daywind. Figures. I’d say that too if I were hawking my new famtastic album.)
Sure, it’s a coincidence … but only if you believe Sheri Easter slept through business school.
Update: Madison Easter says it’s all dumb luck, more or less. I like Jim2’s idea of a “vast bluegrass conspiracy” (has a nice ridiculous ring to it) but that’s not really what I had in mind. My point wasn’t to suggest Sheri Easter made the planets align just right (obviously the recording has been in the works for while), but that announcing this project the day after the Ritchie thing was a smart move. And there’s enough flexibility on release dates to make that not improbable or unlikely. That’s all. And yeah, it should be a good album fer sher.Email this Post
