I know that the future of music is in good hands with people like Seth [Bernard] around to be its caretaker. More importantly, I know the future of our world is in good hands.

On “We’ve Come Along,” Mark [Lavengood] shows his diversity as a musician and a dobro player. This record has it all. Bluegrass, jams, solo slide performances and more! It’s band-centric but the standout slide playing and singing make this a must listen!
