Always one of my favourite musicians to collaborate with, I’m going to be playing all Ivan’s hits from The Littlest Dobro as well as all the special secret non album songs. Which ones you ask?

IBMA with the Slocan Ramblers

Fillin the tank and heading south with the Slocan Ramblers. Seems like we were just there, but we can’t hardly wait to get back. We have some great shows coming down the line, with a nice little stop at the ever awesome International Bluegrass Music Association sandwiched in the middle.
