Nighthawk

Danny Roberts

Grascals mandolin master Danny Roberts is no stranger to hard work and well-deserved accolades. He has won several awards both on his own and as a member of the Grammy®-nominated Grascals.

Even with this recognition, Roberts is not one to rest on his laurels. His second solo project, Nighthawk, out on Mountain Home, spotlights a seasoned and innovative player in his prime. The recording is a eclectic mix of sophisticated acoustic stylings from Bluegrass to Swing to New Grass and includes some of Danny’s Grascals bandmates as well as “musical idols, friends and family.”

“It was so much fun recording tunes that I have written accompanied by such outstanding musicians. I’m very excited about the special guests that came in to record with me and I am truly honored to have them be part of this.” The album line-up includes Kristin Scott Benson and Adam Haynes of the Grascals, Tim Surrett of Balsam Range, Tony Wray of Blue Mafia, and special guests include Ronnie McCoury, Sam Bush, Aubrey Haney, Mike Compton, Jimmy Mattingly and vocal appearances by Danny’s daughter Jaelee Roberts and his wife Andrea.
