Fascination (Sugar Hill)

On disc No. 4, this once-local, now Nashville-based trio takes its fusion of folk and bluegrass to another level, working for the first time with a producer, Jay Joyce (Patty Griffin, Jack Ingram). The 'Cards introduce even more intricate interplay ("Little Siam") and worldly rhythms ("Chico Calling") to the comely vocals of bassist Carol Young. One of the most inventive discs you'll hear this year. (Friday, April 17, 6:45pm, Hill Country Stage.) ***.5
