New Album - Adeline
It's Alive!!!

I had so much fun making this album, and I'm so proud to be a part of it! Today is July 23 and it has officially "dropped" (as the cool kids like to say). You can download it or order a hard copy here at www.adelineoldtime.com , or stream it wherever you like to listen to music for free!

"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

...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.
