We posted last month about what is sure to be an exciting new instrumental outfit, composed of dobro wizard Rob Ickes, mandolin/fiddle prodigy Andy Leftwich, and Nashville session bass stalwart Dave Pomeroy. The band, who describe themselves as a “jamgrass acoustic power trio,” is called Three Ring Circle, and their debut, self-titled recording will be released in just a few weeks’ time on Earwave Records.
The new CD contains everything from adventurous improvisation romps written by the three soloists, to a lovely, lyrical retelling of Stevie Wonder’s Isn’t She Lovely as a dobro feature. Audio samples from each of the ten tracks can be found on their web site.
Despite their commitments to busy touring responsibilities – Ickes with Blue Highway, Leftwich with Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, and Pomeroy in the studio – Three Ring Circle will do some live appearances, as scheduling allows. Find more info about shows on their site as well.
The band is offering a pre-release special with orders being received before March 21 being eligible for free shipping to addresses in the US and Canada.
