ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
THE CRUTCHFIELD PROJECT
Alan Dillman—fiddle
John Crutchfield—banjo
Todd Neel—guitar
Will McIntyre—bass

John Crutchfield was born in Austin, Texas and raised in Boone, North Carolina. He was educated at the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill) and at Cornell University. A writer and performer currently based in Berlin, Germany, he is the recipient of a Morehead Foundation Scholarship, a Mellon Fellowship in the Humanities, and various grants and fellowships from the North Carolina Arts Council. John plays acoustic guitar, slide guitar, and clawhammer-style banjo. He has been an active participant in the vibrant old-time music scene in Asheville, where he frequently performs in open jam sessions, and with the old-time string bands Chicken Train and The New Southern Ramblers.

Alan Dillman started playing bluegrass banjo at the age of twelve and took up the fiddle in his twenties after hearing string band music at an old-time fiddler's gathering. He enjoys playing both Irish style and old-time fiddle, favoring the 'notey' old-time tunes of his native midwest. Alan, a carpenter and woodworker, makes his home near Saluda, NC with his wife and two difficult cats. He plays fiddle for area dances and enjoys getting together with friends for an evening of music and good company.

Will McIntyre plays regularly with Grammy-award winner David Holt as well as Fiddler Tim Smith. In the 1980s Will was a founding member of the Old Hollow String Band. He is a 1976 graduate of Western Carolina University and has received its Alumni Professional Achievement Award. He lives in Hendersonville, NC with his wife, Deni, his partner in Will & Deni Media Inc. They have traveled and worked together in 78 countries producing images and photo books as well as music videos, short movies, and documentaries for public television.

Todd Neel has played stringed instruments for most of his life, starting with guitar quickly followed by mandolin and, more recently, upright bass. He has played bluegrass/newgrass, musical theater, folk and pop music over the years. He has been playing old-time since about 2004 and he likes the whirling dervish, Zen-like aspect of it. Playing it is an exercise in restraint, of blending in with the whole such that the instruments melt together into one unified sound and do not stand out individually. He earns a living as a nurse practitioner, and four daughters keep him pretty busy at home.
