The "Big Fancy" CD is officially available!

Sunday, November 15, 2015 @5:00:11 PM

 

I’m so excited to announce that my debut solo CD “Big Fancy” is now available. This project has been percolating for a long time and, to my astonishment, it’s finally done! Yay!

 

If you have any interest in a straight-up instrumental old-time album chock full of classics as well as some genuine rarities, then you’ll really dig it. There’s a ton of fiddle and quite a lot of banjo on the recording, in a variety of tunings. I drew my repertoire from Kentucky, West Virginia, Illinois, North Carolina, Louisiana, Georgia, Tennessee, and Ohio. 

 

For the banjo geeks out there, clawhammer, 2-finger and 3-finger styles are all represented! I recorded with banjos made by Jason Romero, Kevin Enoch, Bart Reiter, Bob Flesher and Jeff Menzies. Some of these banjos can also be heard on the Dan Gellert CD/DVD set that I produced and released earlier this year.

 

"Big Fancy" features 21 tracks and comes with a 24-page booklet that contains in-depth liner notes, photographs and artwork. Here’s the track listing:

 

-Uncle Tom and the Wolves

-Cripple Creek

-Going to the Free State

-Big Fancy

-Flannery’s Dream

-Kate’s Got a Wooden Leg

-Big Hoedown

-Over the Mountain

Check it out if you get a chance! We had a ton of fun making it and I'd love to hear what you think!
