New projects from Pinecastle this year

pinecastlePinecastle Records’ Ethan Burkhardt shared some news today about what they have in the pipeline for 2014. They have just recently released a new CD for bassist/vocalist Matt Wallace, and had previously announced one coming from reso-man Phil Leadbetter and an Osborne Brothers CD of lost tracks.

Ethan says that Wildfire is working now on a new Pinecastle project, with a single expected in April.

The Osborne Brothers CD, Nashville, is scheduled for a June 10 street date. It will include 7 tracks recorded in 1973, but never released owing to a disagreement between the Osbornes and MCA Records after they took over for Decca, with whom the brothers were under contract.

Also scheduled are an album from The Gentlemen Of Bluegrass (6/10) and one from Irish bluegrass/Americana band I Draw Slow (7/8).

Burkhardt shared this latest video from I Draw Slow, Valentine, which will be part of their next CD, along with an interesting story about the shoot.

“The Valentine video features actor Aidan Gillen who is one of the few main characters on Game Of Thrones that hasn’t been killed off. The director of the video, Hugh O’Conor, knew Gillen and sent him an email about possibly being in the video a few days before they were set to shoot. He checked out their past videos and fell in love with the band, and said he’d do it free of charge.”
