Released in 2010, “Folly Time” branches out with 7 original songs written by each of the band’s own members.  Folly Time placed in the top 30 new bluegrass cd’s of 2010 by WERU-FM.  This project also introduces new band member John Boulding, formerly with Shady Grove Band and co-founder of Wyatt Rice and Santa Cruz, on banjo and resonator guitar.

With the verve of our newest originals and the nerve to re-arrange songs by all time great songwriters including Paul McCartney and Paul Simon, “Red Wine For My Heart” takes Rain Check to a new place with a project we hope will stand the test of time.  Thanks go out to our stellar fiddle playing guest and friend, Glen Alexander, along with Wyatt Rice and Claiborne Woodall who appear on the Bonus Track.

Rain Check’s maiden release in 2007, Confluence, displays this bluegrass band’s ability to put its own twist on songs by non-bluegrass artists including Eric Clapton, John Prine, Van Morrison and Bob Marley; along with 4 of its own originals.  The response this project got from bluegrass radio stations from Nashville to Canada, and from our live audiences, was a gift unto itself.
