ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
After many years honing their powerful harmony vocals around Pacific Northwest campfires, Dale Adkins, Don Share and Joe Wilmhoff have decided to take their repertoire of soulful acoustic music to the stage. The unique vocal connection between these three singers is the centerpiece of Old Growth Quartet. The band features an eclectic repertoire of traditional and original music with deep roots in bluegrass, country, and folk. The band’s instrumental firepower features the virtuosic lead guitar playing of Dale Adkins and the riveting fiddling of Paul Elliott. Joe Wilmhoff (bass) and Don Share (guitar) provide a rhythm section and groove that will grab your attention.

Dale Adkins (guitar, tenor guitar, banjo, mandolin, and vocals) is, quite simply, a Northwest guitar legend. Flatpick Guitar Magazine states: “he's really, really good, as in a major Force." As a part of Grammy nominee Kate MacKenzie's touring band, Dale performed across the U.S. and Europe in the 1990s . Other musical collaborations include guitar legend Dan Crary, Frontline, True North, Leah Larson and many others. With the release of “Alone in the Red Room,” Dale introduces a significant departure from high-energy bluegrass flatpicking, and shows a significant growth and sophistication in his playing. Dale’s other musical pursuit is owner and engineer/producer of Big Owl Studios in Sunriver, OR. Learn more about Dale Adkins at: www.daleadkins.net.

Paul Elliott's fiddle playing has the kind of explosive energy that grabs you and doesn’t let go. One of the most versatile, accomplished, and respected fiddle players on the West Coast, he has performed with The Good Old Persons, John Reischman, Michelle Shocked, Alison Brown, Buell Neidlinger, and others. His recording credits span film, television, and radio, and a long list of recordings including Scott Nygaard’s No Hurry on the Rounder label. Paul is also a talented composer, arranger, recording engineer, and music teacher. Paul currently performs with the Seattle Bluegrass band, The Downtown Mountain Boys, and he recorded and mixed that band’s two recordings: Big Darlin’ (2007) and Heartland (2014).

Don Share (Guitar and vocals) has been a mainstay of the Seattle bluegrass and acoustic music scene for over three decades. He is an accomplished lead singer, a harmony singing ace, and a gifted rhythm guitarist. A founding member of the popular bluegrass bands Who’s Driving? and Rainy Pass, he currently performs with the bluegrass stalwarts The DownTown Mountain Boys, and the folk and country band, The Debutones. He appears on a number of recordings, including Cold Rains of Winter (Rainy Pass), Big Darlin’ and Heartland (The DownTown Mountain Boys). Don has taught harmony singing and guitar, and appears on an instructional harmony singing series with Sue Thompson and Keith Little.

Joe Wilmoff (Bass and vocals) was born and raised in Kentucky, Joe has been performing for more than 30 years. He is a very diverse and multi-talented musician with a performing background rooted in college-level classical piano and guitar. Over the years many styles of music including, classical, country, celtic, old-time, and rock and roll, contributed to the creative drive that Joe displays on stage. Joe performed with Don Share in Who’s Driving, and with Dale Adkins was a member of Frontline, the band that toured with grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Kate MacKenzie. He appears on two Frontline recordings, Two Cabins (with Kate MacKenie) and Mansions of Kings. He was a founding member of The Downtown Mountain Boys. He brings to the band stellar vocals, original material, and is old Growth's powerhouse of rock solid rhythm.
