Album Notes
Hailing from a country better known for its beer and chocolate than its banjo players, this lanky fellow’s career as a banjo player was certainly not in the cards.
Although he grew up listening to jazz and classical music and later immersed himself in folk and bluegrass, the music Guy Donis creates with his collaborators is one of a kind.
Marie-Soleil Bélanger on violin and Solon McDade on Bass add their talent as musicians but also as composers for a trio that is really a three persons collaboration rather than a leader hiring musicians.
We’re talking music that is surprising, exhilarating, amusing, moving, toe-tapping, thundering, startling, enchanting, heart-warming, rousing and, above all... unexpected!

Originally from Belgium, Guy Donis has been part, amongst the best banjo players in the world on two banjo compilations: "Banjo Influences" and "Magic Banjo" and cited as one of the main european banjo player in the book "Banjo for Dummies" (french version)

Also a prolific composer, he can be heard regularly on canadian radios and his music has been used in movies, dance shows, T.V. Shows, publicity...
