Highway Shoes – 2005
Released in August 2005, “Highway Shoes” incorporates not only what you would expect from Shipman such as traditional bluegrass and folk tracks, but some new sounds as well.
Shipman’s rich baritone voice together with his solid mandolin and guitar playing take center stage, and carry the listener down an old-time road, with able support from some of the best players in New England.
Contributing on fiddle, dobro, pedal steel, drums, and upright bass are members of Mill City Ramblers, Splittin’ Hairs and High Range, as well as Bruce Derr, Jon Nolan, Jon Ross, Joyce Andersen, Roger Williams. The sidemen shine behind Shipman as he sings songs that harken back to the days of old country music, blues, swing and bluegrass.
