ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Every so often a group of musicians come together to form a band that brings a fresh sound to captivate a listening audience. Drawing influence from musical heroes and various genres of music, Rockin’ Acoustic Circus has developed a sound of their own - a sound uniquely arranged by the individual members. Their dynamic acoustic blend allows each to express their creativity and push the boundaries of typical stringed instruments.

RAC turned heads with an over-flowing talent pool and musicianship beyond their years. Comprised of teens and a musical veteran, this ensemble wowed crowds and critics alike. Quickly morphing from a regional favorite into a group with nationally recognized aspirations – they got noticed by listening audiences as musicians in their prime.

The band spent a good portion of their youth playing music. The Circus began as result of group members taking lessons from the same teacher. They had aspirations to play together and create something unique. Sterling Abernathy, founding member, along with his parents, formed and promoted the group. He defined the groove with his "Dawg-inspired" mandolin chops, was an award winning contest player and Iron Chef of the eight-string. Eric Dysart with an impressive list of fiddling championships, also studied under the same teacher, and formed the duo core for RAC. Taking up banjo at the age twelve, Carson Clemishire had licks to spare and rolls to be reckoned with. Emma Hardin, "bluegrass cellist" was not only a classical cellist, but broke ground in this group into new musical territory with the cello. Emma’s younger brother, Zac Hardin (also classically trained) rounded out the group of young talent with a bass groove well beyond his years.

The Circus first caught the attention of Oklahoma bluegrass legend Byron Berline, a three-time national fiddle champion and director of the Oklahoma International Bluegrass Festival. Berline says the thing that impresses him most about RAC is they strive for originality, bringing their own distinctive style to bluegrass standards. "They step out and do traditional music their own way and bring their own style and feel to the music," says Berline. “They aren’t copycats and you see copycats all the time in bluegrass.”

Now, these powerhouse teens – have merged into one impressive band. As they continue adding to their already impressive repertoire with their unique sound, creative arrangements and dynamic originals, listening to their acoustical fused music influenced by bluegrass, folk, country, jazz, classical, and even some rock-n-roll, makes them an incredible listening experience.

“I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed having Rockin' Acoustic Circus at the 49th annual Philadelphia Folk Festival. It is wonderful to see these young people add their stamp to bluegrass music while honoring the tradition from which it came. Their main stage, workshop & showcase performances were all well received by our audiences; I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone." –ANDY BRAUNFELD, Director, Philadelphia Folk Festival

"When I heard 'The Circus' at IBMA, I was spellbound - the kind of spell I fell into when I first heard Chris Thile. One of the things I love about RAC is that they are very much a constellation of equally brilliant players with a fresh and gorgeous repertoire. I couldn't wait to hear what they'd do next." -Mary Burdette, Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival, NY

“From the first moment I heard Rockin’ Acoustic Circus, I knew that our Wintergrass audience would love them. They have that young energy that is so fun for audiences and you can tell they are all accomplished musicians that have a good sense of not only music, but performance as well.” -STEPHEN RUFFO, Wintergrass, WA

"I have been a fan of this group for some time now, and they have performed at the Jazz Hall of Fame on various occasions and always standing ovations. It's really refreshing and thrilling for me to see young people who have their heads on straight, and focused on their future with a positive attitude." -CHUCK CISSEL, CEO, Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame
