The instrumental on the album this one showcases the band’s fantastic instrumental abilities. “This one I feel took the most work arrangement-wise. Robert brought this one to the band in early 2021. Touring hadn’t kicked back in yet, but we were playing 4 shows a weekend as a trio at The Purple Fiddle in Thomas, WV. At that point in the pandemic, we weren’t allowed to sing at venues in West Virginia, so we had to come up with two hours of instrumentals. Robert showed us this one, saying “Yeah the A part is in 9 and the B part is in 4, oh, except where it goes back to 9.” Alex and I just looked at each other. We went through a lot of different arrangements, but nothing ever felt quite right. One afternoon, I was messing around with it, and I thought, what if instead of a 9 feel I just put it to a bluegrass rhythm? Well, it worked. Then I thought, what if we make the 9-part a three-part round? Now, that part took some more arranging, but it worked! This is one of my favorite songs on the album to play live. It’s super fun to play, and I’m proud of how this one turned out.” -Jack Dunlap

ISRC: QZ JBC 22 22015 Written by Ralph Stanley Acuff Rose Music, BMI Larry Efaw: Mandolin   Mikayla Burrows: Upright Bass  Adam Burrows: Fiddle   Curtis Coleman: Banjo   Logan Leab: Lead Acoustic Guitar  Producers - Larry Efaw and Mikayla Burrows  Mixed and Mastered - Tim Norris at Castleford Studios 

Bell Buckle Records presents an instrumental upbeat, driving featured single, "Fling Ding," from Larry Effaw's latest album, "The Old Home." The song is a classic Ralph Stanley number that showcases the virtuosic instrumental skills and styles of his band, The Missouri Mountaineers. Their first feature single from the album, "Torn Love," was a song penned by Larry's father, Edward Efaw. 

Larry Efaw started playing the mandolin at the age of 7. He soon joined his father's band, Edward Efaw, and the Bluegrass Mountaineers. Larry had many opportunities to join national bluegrass bands over the years, but he stayed loyal to his dad. Ed continued to play through his 80s and only recently retired from performing on stage. During Larry's musical career, he has appeared as a guest with Dailey & Vincent, Rhonda Vincent, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Doyle Lawson, Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, Del McCoury, the Lewis Family, and Goldwing Express, to mention a few. Larry has since recorded several albums and is currently releasing his 10th project through Bell Buckle Records, "The Old Home." 

Larry has won numerous awards and championships, including Ray Hover, Bluegrass Man of The Year, Kentucky Colonial, and 1st place Ohio State Mandolin Champion at the State Guitar Championship.  Larry is one of the most respected men in the bluegrass music industry. In 1987 he started promoting bluegrass music in Ohio. Larry and his wife of 38 years, Lisa, have promoted bluegrass music in Perrysburg and Greenwich. They have also been event producers for First Quality Cruises, Travel-Bluegrass Cruise, Maumee Bay Bluegrass Festival, Lake Wapusun, Play Pen Park, Clay's Park, Paradise Lakes Park, and the O.J. Work Auditorium at the Springfield High School for over 20 years.  During his career, he became great friends with Dr. Ralph Stanley. Ralph performed on several of Larry's C.D.s.  The Bluegrass Mountaineers are Adam Burrows (Fiddle) and his wife Mikayla Burrows (Upright Bass), Logan Leab (Acoustic Guitar), Curtis Coleman (banjo), and founding member Larry Efaw (Mandolin).     The Bluegrass Mountaineer's live show offers a variety of music to their audiences by mixing their show with elements of the Louvin Brothers, the Lewis Family, the Osborne Brothers, Lester Flatt, Jimmy Martin, and the Stanely Brothers, and many others.

"I love how this album displays the individual abilities that Pam(Setser) and Brad(Apple) possess, but it also shows how their combined talents complement and enhance each other's music. The album is a great listening experience, and I believe you will love it as much as I do" - Sharon White.    APPLE & SETSER is a collection of new originals, classic favorites, and lesser-known traditional songs that take us on a nostalgic visit to the past when songs told stories that touched our hearts and memories. The album transports us on a journey back in time by showcasing foot-stomping songs and covers fond thoughts of family and friends.  Apple & Setser also include heartfelt songs about love and lost love.  Their production is well presented by the sweet sounds of acoustic stringed instruments and with the flavor of music that is popular in Mountain View, Arkansas. The production crosses folk, bluegrass, Americana, country, and old-time genres and features notable and award-winning bluegrass and gospel guest musicians David Johnson, Tim Crouch, and Danny Crawford.    Golden-voiced singer and multi-instrumentalist Pam Setser was nominated for Americana Artist of the Year for the 2021 Arkansas Country Music Awards. Brad Apple is a producer, studio engineer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and songwriter whose original songs have been recorded by a number of other artists.  Apple & Setser (officially a duo since 2017) were nominated for Best Acoustic Act for the 2022 Arkansas Country Music Awards.   Previews and all assets are also available for download on our media page:  https://bellbucklemedia.com/apple-setser as well as on Airplay Direct:   Previews and more information can also be found at   www.pamsetser.com/apple-setser   Featured songs for folk include two originals: "Grandma Danced with the Arkansas Traveler" and "A Friend You'd Never Met," and a beautiful rendition of Paul Anka's "It Doesn't Matter Anymore."   Featured songs for bluegrass and Grassicana include a clean, crisp duet version of the feel-good "I'll Love Nobody But You" by Jim & Jesse McReynolds and Apple & Setser's own interpretations of "Hand Me Down My Walking Cane" by James A. Bland, and the traditional tune "Rake and the Rambling Blade."   The album also includes two instrumental tracks, "Hayes Hoedown,” a playful and dynamic original mountain dulcimer tune by Pam Setser, and a beautiful solo finger-style acoustic guitar version of the classic song "When You and I Were Young, Maggie"

Artist and Song Bio Encouraged by the successful release of their first single, "In Tennessee," Bobby Giles & Texas Gales, in conjunction with Jim VanCleve, producer-performer of "Appalachian Road Show," and Valerie Smith, the owner of Bell Buckle Records, present their second bluegrass single, "Chicken Run." Singer, songwriter, and performer Bobby Giles has had great success with his first release, the album "The Music of Life," scheduled for release in the early Fall of 2022. "As a young boy growing up in Texas, Sunday dinners at the family farm were highly popular. My grandmother, Little Mama, awarded aunts, uncles, cousins, and even some lucky neighbors the best-fried chicken ever made. She was an incredibly adept chicken ring-necker, deliberate and effective. The chicken coup was out by the barn, but lots of those birds would hang around the back door, which, unfortunately, was attached to the kitchen. If we arrived early enough, we would have ringside seats to Carson County's most popular spectator sport starring Maybelle Burns. She'd hit that screen door with a purpose, and brother, the hunt was on!

We know that the prize is eternal life, and I'm nearer now to heaven than I've ever been." - Daniel Crabtree Closer Than I've Ever Been is Daniel Crabtree’s latest gospel project. It is his fifth album, consisting of 10 original songs written by Daniel. He has thus far released three singles from the project: "John the Baptist," "Closer Than I’ve Ever Been," and “Would You Be a Soldier,” which charted on the Bluegrass Today Gospel Charts as well as the Roots Music Report. Daniel once again teamed up with award-winning singer/songwriter Donna Ulisse to coproduce Closer Than I've Ever Been. The tracks were recorded and engineered by the multi-talented Scott Vestal at his Digital Underground Recording Studio. A standout group of musicians brought the melodies to life, including Vestal on banjo, Cody Kilby on guitar, Gaven Largent on dobro, Patrick McAvinue and Jason Carter on fiddle, Harry Clark, and Jesse Brock on mandolin, and Evan Winsor and Mike Bub on acoustic bass.  In addition to releasing his own music, Daniel has had his material recorded by famous bluegrass artists such as Larry Sparks and Valerie Smith. Sparks' renditions of "Don't Take Your Eyes Off of Jesus" and "All Over Me" reached No. 1 on the Bluegrass Today chart.  Daniel launched his singer/songwriter career in 2016 with the release of his first album, The Gospel Road. His follow-up projects — 2017's In the Shadow of His Wings, 2019's The Storyteller in Me, and 2021's The Way I See It — have been a mixture of his two passions: gospel and bluegrass music.  Daniel's recent accomplishments include recognition by the Independent Music Awards, which named "Piedmont Train" as the Best Bluegrass Song of 2019, and a nomination by the International Acoustic Music Awards for Best Bluegrass Song ("Sally Sunday").

Daniel Crabtree releases a second featured single, Would You Be A Soldier? from his upcoming album, Closer Than I've Ever Been.  Daniel released a stellar fourth album, The Way I See It, in 2021. Crabtree wrote all 13 tracks and has become one of the celebrated singer/songwriters in today's gospel, roots, and bluegrass music. His songs embrace the human spirit through clever lyrics, for which Daniel's writing is known. The project is a mix of secular and spiritual songs produced by award-winning artist/songwriter/producer Donna Ulisse. The tracks were recorded and engineered by the multi-talented Scott Vestal.  

Daniel's recent accomplishments include recognition by the Independent Music Awards, which named "Piedmont Train" as the "Best Bluegrass Song of 2019," and a nomination by the International Acoustic Music Awards for "Best Bluegrass Song" ("Sally Sunday").   

Famous bluegrass artists Larry Sparks, Valerie Smith, and others have recorded his songs. Recently, the gospel songs recorded by Sparks "Don't Take Your Eyes Off of Jesus" and "All Over Me" have been charted on Bluegrass Today. Daniel's "He'll Change Your Life" charted on the Gospel Bluegrass Today Charts in 2021.  

His first two albums were original gospel songs. "I recorded two full gospel projects first because I felt that was my strongest material," Daniel says. His next album was secular material. His fourth album, The Way I See It, is a mixture of secular and gospel songs. Donna produced all four of the albums. Daniel records at Scott Vestal's Digital Underground Recording Studio in Greenbrier, Tennessee.  

"Most of my songs are from personal experiences," Daniel says, "but some are completely made up from my imagination."
