Please allow me to introduce you to the act that will be visiting you on the road this Fall - Erin Inglish with the Stringtown Ambassadors! Heralding from my hometown, San Luis Obispo County, Kenneth Davis will be joining Rosalind Parducci and I on percussion. He's snappy on the kit, quick with a washboard and spoons, and a right-nice fella to be around. Banjo, fiddle, voices, percussion - together with our sound engineer and road manager Ryland Veesart, we look forward to traveling from California to Ohio and back over a two month tour. Here is a quick look at our tour route, more shows to be published as they are confirmed!:

About Erin Inglish w/the Stringtown Ambassadors

Insightful songwriting, lush harmony singing, and fearless picking, this act features the award-winning songwriting of California banjo chanteuse Erin Inglish (expressive, sassy, dynamic banjo; lush and raw power-house vocals) galvanized by the soaring harmonies, tenacious solos and gritty rhythmic drive of the Stringtown Ambassadors - a rotating collective of passionate and unabashed modern-day minstrels hosted by fiddler and singer Rosalind Parducci. Luminous musicianship and rhythmic groove, Erin Inglish w/the Stringtown Ambassadors present a high-energy, entertaining, positively-charged act - steeped with harmonies and instrumental prowess on the banjo and fiddle accompanied by percussion, guitar, mandolin or bass.

Erin Inglish is a tour-de-force banjo chanteuse, a thoughtful wanderer steeped in the thick of California’s music scene. Inglish’s performances proffer passionate lyricism, toe-tapping grooves, and striking reflections about the state of the modern world. Her voice is both lush and raw, and her picking style on the five-string banjo is uniquely her own…expressive, sassy, dynamic. Erin has spent several years living abroad (in India, Madagascar, Bulgaria and Serbia) – and her songwriting reflects her elation for life, creative and exploratory nature, and passion for creating positive change through community and art. Inglish's newest album, Muse, release November, 2015, and features nine tracks of original music lush with groove-laden, "blues-grass" banjo riffs, her honest and powerful vocal stylings - pure, soulful, and gritty at the same time - and a brilliant cast of guest musicians including hometown jazz maestra Inga Swearingen, Celtic-inspired duo the Stringtown Ambassadors, Steve Amadee of The Subdudes and many more. Anticipating going back into the studio in early 2016, Inglish looks forward to continuing to welcome new guests onto her proejcts. This Fall, Inglish will be accompanied on tour by the Stringtown Ambassadors, hosted by fiddler Rosalind Parducci. Says a North Carolina fan of Erin Inglish, "Her melodic optimism is a lighthouse calling the rest of us to pay attention to our highest pursuits." (www.erininglish.com)

The Stringtown Ambassadors are a rotating collective of passionate and unabashed modern-day minstrels hosted by Northern California fiddler, singer and songwriter Rosalind Parducci. The Stringtown Ambassadors' new-folk collaborations delightfully weave tunes old and new into a compelling performance carried by insightful songwriting, lush harmony singing, and fearless picking. Heartfelt, authentic renditions of familiar reels, time-tested tunes, and original pieces that bend the ear and invite the imagination - Parducci's songs are whimsical and fresh, odes to the artist's journey. Stringtown is a grooving rhythmic soundscape, and its eclectic music bends the ear and invites the imagination. Artists who have and will perform with Stringtown include Erin Inglish, five-string banjo chanteuse out of California, Kenneth Davis, percussionist from the Central Coast of California, and founding member Arlo Blaisus, Vice Chancellor of the Mandolin. Together, the Stringtown Ambassadors are stewards of a transforming musical tradition - they are true ambassadors of American folk music. (www.stringtownambassadors.com)
