WAMU’s Bluegrass Country will feature an Official Debut of No Borders, the brand new CD from The Spinney Brothers on Mountain Fever Records, on Tuesday, April 30th. The band will be in studio with radio programmer Lee Michael Demsey who will not only play a few tracks from the CD, but will also have The Spinney Brothers perform some of their new songs live, all beginning at 11:00am ET.
Comprised of Allan Spinney, Rick Spinney, Gary Dalrymple, and Adam Pye, The Spinney Brothers are originally from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia and debuted in 1992, showcasing a tight brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound. The cornerstone of their musical identity is their thorough understanding of traditional, southern-flavored bluegrass music. The first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence, yet the Brother’s music is equally shaped by their personal lives and rural heritage. By incorporating original material, which draws from various sources, the Spinney Brothers effortlessly intertwine the past with the present. Their debut CD on Mountain Fever Records, Memories, garnered a #1 spot on the National Bluegrass Music Survey in February 2013 with the title cut and continues to stay at the top of the charts even after being released over a year ago. The band is featured on the April cover of Bluegrass Unlimited magazine and has a very active touring schedule in support of the international release of No Borders, due for release May 7th.
