Chris Coole and Ivan Rosenberg
Join Chris Coole and Ivan Rosenberg for the Seattle stop on their "Farewell Trion" CD Release tour, part of the NextGen Folk Series.
Coole and Rosenberg may have lots of geographical territory between them, but the Clawhammer banjo/Dobro duo are from the same town, musically speaking, where old time, bluegrass, and country blues are played on Dobro, clawhammer banjo, and guitar. Coole from Toronto, Ontario and Rosenberg from Portland, Oregon first took to the road as an acoustic duo in 2008. They have since toured several times throughout Canada. Their March 2011 tourfrom Portland, Oregon to Chicago, Illinoiswill be their first time bringing this unique act to audiences in the United States.
Rosenberg is known as one of the top Dobro players on the scene today. His original music has appeared in over 200 TV shows and films including The Daily Show, Oprah, and Deadwood; he recently recorded on "Southern Filibuster: A Tribute to Tut Taylor" at the invitation of producer Jerry Douglas; and he won an IBMA award for co-writing the 2009 Song of the Year, "Don't Throw Mama's Flowers Away." Coole is well-known for his virtuosic clawhammer banjo music as well as his guitar playing and singing with the award-winning bluegrass band The Foggy Hogtown Boys. Coole's recent solo album "Old Dog" received rave reviews, he was a finalist at the Clifftop banjo contest in 2004 and 2006, and his CDs with fellow Toronto banjoist Arnie Naiman are treasured by fans of old time banjo.
2010 marked the release of their first CD, "Farewell Trion," which showcases their unique clawhammer banjo and Dobro instrumentation and Coole's compelling vocals.
