Free Album Download!!!!

I used to play in a really good band called "The Good Right Arm". We made one record, and never really released it (I think we made 100 copies). Anyhow, I always liked it, and rather than let it slip into total obscurity, I thought I'd offer it as a free download. The band features Tonly Allen on fiddle, Kristine Schmitt on vocals, Sam Petite on bass, and myself on banjo and guitar. Click here listen or download it for free. 

New record is here!

I'm happy to say that my 2nd solo album is happening...right now, right here! "The Tumbling River"  is 8 new original songs, and 4 covers (Stanley Brothers, Ola Belle Reed, and the ubiquitous "Traditional"). I'm joined by a some great musicians on this recording - Burke Carrol, Andrew Collins, Brian Kobayakawa, Ivan Rosenberg, Simone Schmidt, Kristine Schmitt, and John Showman.

"The Tumbling River"  is only available for download directly from this website (not  ITunes, CD Baby, etc). You have a choice between MP3 or FLAC format, with a secure payment system. You can also order physical copies from this site, or get one from me at a live show.  Click here or on the image below if you'd like to hear the songs, and perhaps purchase the album.

Official Showcases at IBMA and FMO! 

I'm thrilled that The Lonesome Ace Stringband has been chosen as official showcase artists at this years IBMA (International Bluegrass Music Association) World of Bluegrass Conference in Raleigh NC as well as the Folk Music Ontario Conference in Toronto. IBMA runs from September 29th-October 3, and it's a great place to see what's going on in the bluegrass galaxy. Click Here for a link to the website.  FMO runs from October 15-18 click here for details. We're honored to be chosen for both these great events.

I've got lot's of good stuff on the go right now. Coming up in June I'll be on the road with Anne Louise Genest in Saskatoon (plus one date in Alberta). Anne Louise is one of my best friends and luckily, she's also a hell of a singer, songwriter and instrumentalist. If you're in the great flat province, check out the shows page for a show near you!
