Mountain bluebird: banjo CD from Canada

Banjo-picker Terry Kruger of Calgary, Canada, sends news of his new instrumental album Mountain bluebird. Terry began playing bluegrass banjo back when trying to make sense of what one could hear on records was practically the only way of learning. Similar to the great Tony Ellis, Terry has a personal style that combines bluegrass picking with old-time tunings, and eight of the sixteen tunes on the album are his original compositions.

The CD was engineered and produced by Dirk Powell, who also plays on the album along with Kevin Wimmer of the Red Stick Ramblers. Read more about the genesis of the album and the individual tunes here; you can hear audio samples on CD Baby.
