Larry Sparks is one of the most respected and beloved figures in bluegrass music. He is known for his fine voice, his unique bluesy style of guitar picking and his uncanny knack for finding great material. Over the years he has stamped his name on an unusually large number of signature songs such as "John Deere Tractor," "Tennessee 1949," "Blue Virginia Blues" and many others. Despite his status as one of bluegrass music's top headline artists, as an elder statesman and as an inductee to the International Bluegrass Music Association's (IBMA) Hall of Fame, Larry Sparks is an under-recorded entity. It has been five years since his last studio album, the 50th anniversary Lonesome And Then Some. Larry's new album commemorates another career milestone. While Lonesome And Then Some marked his 50th anniversary as a professional musician, New Moon Over My Shoulder coincides with the fifth decade of Larry as the band leader of his Lonesome Ramblers. Some things are worth the wait and such is the casewith the brand new New Moon Over My Shoulder.
