Bluegrass Country to launch the Spinney’s No Borders

No Borders - The Spinney BrothersWAMU’s Bluegrass Country will feature an official debut of No Borders, the brand new CD from the The Spinney Brothers on the Mountain Fever label, tomorrow, April 30th.

The band, consisting of Allan Spinney (guitar and vocals), Rick Spinney (banjo and vocals), Gary Dalrymple (mandolin) and Adam Pye (bass) will be in the studio with radio presenter Lee Michael Demsey, who will not only play a few tracks from the CD, but will also have the Spinney Brothers in person to perform some of their new songs live, all beginning at 11:00 a.m. (ET).

The Spinney Brothers, formed in 1992, are originally from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada. They are noted for their tight brother duet vocal style that is immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound. The cornerstone of their musical identity is their thorough understanding of traditional, southern-flavoured bluegrass music. While the first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence, the brothers’ music is equally shaped by their personal lives and rural heritage.

The Spinney Brothers can be heard on WAMU’s Bluegrass Country with Lee Michael Demsey worldwide on and locally within the D. C. area via 105.5 FM in Washington, D.C., on 93.5 FM in Frederick and Hagerstown, Maryland, or through the station’s iPhone application.
