After many delays, the first single from the new recording by Don Rigsby and David Thom is available for download for airplay just in time for Christmas. The song, “Same Auld Lang Syne”, is a holiday themed remake of a classic by the late Dan Fogelberg. “I have loved this song since I was a teenaged boy. I always wanted to find a place to record it and this seemed like the right time”, said Rigsby.
“New Territory” will be available for purchase and download for radio January 10, 2016.

The recording covers the gamut from Bluegrass to originals and Americana. It is the first release for the Rigsby and Thom duet on 9 Lives Records. Thom said,” I am stoked about this recording. It has been a labor intensive-effort requiring recording sessions in Kentucky, California, Missouri and Tennessee. It was totally worth it!” Guests include Peter Rowan, Randy Kohrs and Tim Crouch.

By chance, Rigsby and Thom met through mutual friend and banjo player Bill Evans. As part of a Flatt and Scruggs tribute, Rigsby flew out to CA to perform with Evans and Thom, among other CA Bluegrass musicians. The two hit it off both musically and personally and became fast friends. David asked Don to come back to CA to play more music a few months later and on that trip, the idea of recording together began to take shape. Ideas were exchanged and the process began.
