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.
Please consider ordering the physical cd or the digital downloads.   I hope you enjoy the listening experience, and thank you for your support !

This recording project is a collection of mostly original instrumental music composed on the 5 string banjo over the last ten years. As a bonus I have also included two fiddle tunes in the mix– one composed by Jim Childress and a traditional tune. There are some solo, duo pieces with Chris Coole on guitar, and band selections with Chris Coole- guitar, John Showman- fiddle, Hannah Shira Naiman -fiddle, and Max Heineman on bass.
