New ! "My Lucky Stars"
This recording is similar in style to those I had done before with Chris Coole on the 5 strings Attached albums, as he backs me up on all of the banjo/guitar duets and also part of the band cuts which also include the fabulous fiddle playing of John Showman and Hannah Shira Naiman, and bass playing of Max Heineman.
There are a couple of 2 finger picking tunes and the rest are clawhammer style, and I have included my banjo tunings in the liner notes just in case you are a banjo player and would like to learn and play some of my tunes.  I am grateful to have received a recording grant from The Ontario Arts Council.  I would love to get this out into the world and into your ears!
Please consider ordering the physical cd or the digital downloads.   I hope you enjoy the listening experience, and thank you for your support in advance
