To see the extent of Bruce Hornsby’s reach and influence, you’ll have to think past those few indelible, still-worthy hits from the mid-'80s. His long association with the Grateful Dead accounts for a significant subset of his fanbase, and he brings a kind of grey eminence on the just-released Day of the Dead tribute album (he tackles “Black Muddy River” with DeYarmond Edison). So far this year Hornsby has shared the stage with country-pop singer Zac Brown (for a cover of “End of the Innocence”) and enlisted Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon to sit on Rehab Reunion, his forthcoming LP with his longstanding band the Noisemakers.

Piano-less Man: For Rehab Reunion, Hornsby steps away from his usual seat at the piano to perform largely on the dulcimer, that four-stringed lap harp of Appalachian origins.

Listen to "Over the Rise" from the new album below:
