Bringing grit, skill and abandon to old-time, Appalachian folk songs and fiddle and banjo tunes, Toronto’s Lonesome Ace Stringband breathe new life into a tradition that has inspired and brought together generations of people. These are songs and tunes for life and all of its occasions: festivals, dances, wars, parties and funerals.

Hailed as old-time saviours and masters of their trade, the trio of John Showman (fiddle), Chris Coole (banjo) and bassist Max Heineman write new material to keep the balance between ancient and modern perfectly paced and finely tuned.

You’ll feel the energy of three passionate musicians playing those instruments as if their lives depended on it and loving every minute. There’s richly burnished character to their brand of American roots music, performed with a refreshing vibrancy that is too often missing – and one that will send you home beaming from ear to ear.
