New Album - Adeline
Coming July 23!
"ADELINE Brings together five musicians from four of today’s most beloved bands in old-time, bluegrass, and folk music. Adrian Gross on mandolin (The Slocan Ramblers), Mark Kilianski on guitar (Golden Shoals), Sam Allison on upright bass and bass harmonica (Sheesham and Lotus), John Showman on fiddle, and Chris Coole on the banjo (The Lonesome Ace Stringband). Captured at a 3-day recorded jam in the winter of 2021, the group play a selection of 15 old-time fiddle tunes with an overwhelming feeling of freedom and joy. www.adelineoldtime.com
New Single "Make this Day" to be released on June 25
I pre-released this song back in February as a fundraiser for The Canadian Mental Health Association. Through the generosity of all the folks who pre-ordered the download, we raised over $5000! Now it's time to release if "for real"...into the algorithm it goes! On June 25, it will be available on all the major streaming services. You can read all about how I came to write this song by clicking here.
...Gonna buy two copies for my mother!
Well, it might not be the cover of The Rolling Stone, but I'm very honoured to be featured in the Oct/Nov issue of The Banjo Newsletter!
My great old friend and musical accomplice Scott Prouty interviewed me last spring, and managed to not make me sound stupid! Thanks Scott! If you don't know the magazine, The Banjo Newsletter has been the premiere media outlet for all things banjo for something like 30 years! Big thanks to publisher Donald Nitchie for being so supportive of my music over the years.
