Album Notes
The second album from CC Thornley's Black Swans of Trespass is an amazing production. It is very rare to see a banjo given so much freedom.

This album is rich in texture, sometimes thick and heavy, othertimes nimble and bluegrass. The song is a blend of traditional songs arranged for CC's 5 string banjo, as well as a special guest appearance of a Wendy Rule song, innovatively interpretted by the band.

Again this album is rock solid proof of CC's songwriting and vision for the banjo. This album is a centerpiece for the Banjo rennaisance within the Australian modern folk/rock scene.

Pure genius, with some absolutely rocking and lyrical banjo picking, and guest appearances from many of Melbourne's diverse music scene.
