Album Notes
John Lowell first toured in Germany in 2010 and continues to be asked back. A nationally known musician since the early 1990's he has become increasingly popular throughout the United States, Canada and Europe with his graceful playing, expressive original songs and smooth baritone vocals. Bluegrass, an exciting form of American roots music fed by a variety of Anglo and Afro-American musical traditions, is the backbone of The John Lowell Band. John has several other CDs to his credit, has appeared on NPR's radio show A Prairie Home Companion, and has been featured on the cover of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine.

Julie Elkins on the five-string banjo, an instrument she's dedicated herself since childhood. Originally from Montana, Elkins currently lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. In addition to her impressive instrumental skills, she is also an excellent singer who enchants with a clear, powerful voice.

Tom Murphy adds depth and power to the band's sound on mandolin. With imaginative solos, driving rhythm and precise vocal harmonies, Tom brings color to many bands he performs with in his adopted home of Bozeman, Montana and decisively shapes the sound of this group.

Completing the quartet is German native, Thomas Kaerner on double bass. A multi-instrumentalist with many years of experience as a touring and session musician for numerous acoustic bands, Thomas provides the essential foundation of the band's sound with his tasteful bass lines and solid rhythm.
