Old Tin: Carl Jones & Erynn Marshall --new recording (Kickstarter ending tonight Sunday Nov 17)

Sunday, November 17, 2019

Hello to all string ticklers and music makers on mandos but also fiddles, guitars, and beyond.I am excited to proclaim a new recording is nearing completion by Erynn Marshall and Carl Jones entitled Old Tin.   It is coming to it's final fundraising hours on kickstarter and we are happy to say our goal has been surpassed and still climbing. There are many expenses yet to pay so all the extras are very much needed and appreciated.  Lot's of original tunes and songs on the new project which we are very proud of and look forward to sharing with you soon.  There is still time to climb on board and request our CD with a pledge and feel as good as we do about coming together to make something successful. I picked my old 1921 A4 Gibson mando on several tunes and I think they turned out nicely. Keep your mandos active and check out our link to see what you think. Thanks for listening and supporting live music and especially mandolin picking. All the best this winter stretch-- may your tremelos be ever steady! Carl

Started playing guitar and writing songs at the age of ten after seeing Roy Rogers pick and sing on television. Played in a bluegrass band while in college in North Alabama and started going to many festivals and fiddlers conventions. This was the onset of what has to become a life-long pursuit-- learning traditional fiddle music and making up "ditties". This led to study of banjo, mandolin, guitar and fiddle and touring as part of The Rising Fawn String Ensemble with James Bryan and Norman and Nancy Blake. In the past decade, I've been part of a singing duo with Beverly Smith and taught at many music camps around the country and abroad. I have had songs recorded by The Nashville Bluegrass Band, Rickie Simpkins, Kate Campbell, and others. I tour occasionally as part of The Haints String Band (Jason and Pharis Romero with Erynn Marshall) and sometimes as a duo w/ Erynn Marshall. I also am lucky enough to have opportunities to join w/ Bruce Greene, Don Pedi, and Rob Hinson as they meander through some great old Kentucky tunes. In 2011, I am touring with James Bryan and once again teaching mandolin, songwriting etc. at workshops and camps around the country.
