Celtic violinist and Native American flutist Arvel Bird is in the
running for five Grammy Awards this year. Bird was named in the Field 4
Best Solo Rock Performance for his songs “Darkhorse” and “Take Me Home”
from the album Ride Indian Ride. “Take Me Home” was also selected in the
Best Rock Song category. The album’s title song, “Ride Indian Ride” was
selected in the Field 13 American Roots Best Contemporary Folk
category, along with “Red River Jig” from the album Red River Jig.
in January, Ride Indian Ride conjures up a classic rockin' guitar beat
blended with Bird's signature Native American violin and flute melodies
that resonate in every cut. Inspired by Bird's love of blues/rock and
Indian motorcycles, the album features 15 songs, many reminiscent of
pure, old-school rock and blues, but each marked with Bird's uniquely
haunting violin rifts and often, the spoken word.
