Since forming nearly 50 years ago, The Seldom Scene has brought freewheeling joy and immaculate musicianship to their inventive take on bluegrass, offering up-spirited interpretations of songs from limitless genres. On their new album, Changes, the band sharpens their focus to a particular body of work: songs first recorded in the 1960s and very early ’70s, rooted in the archetypal storytelling of classic singer-songwriters. And in taking on the music of iconic artists like Bob Dylan and Townes Van Zandt, The Seldom Scene performs a sort of subtle magic: transforming the most stripped-bare songs into harmony-rich and elaborately arranged compositions while wholly sustaining the charming simplicity of each piece.
