Skaggs Prepares Live Album

Ricky Skaggs and his band, Kentucky Thunder, are releasing a new concert album, but it’s not merely a rehash of old hits. Fewer than half of the songs on Live at the Charleston Music Hall have been previously recorded by Skaggs. Recorded on two successive nights in November in Charleston, S.C., the CD features two new Skaggs instrumentals and a bluegrass arrangement of Harry Chapin’s “Cat’s in the Cradle.” The album is set for March 25 release. 01/30/03
