Meet the Lonesome Ace Stringband

Posted on Posted in Concert Series

If you like old time Appalachian music, you should come see The Lonesome Ace Stringband.  Three talented musicians in their own right come together and create music that will have you tapping your feet and in awe of their virtuosity and artistry.

Chris Coole on banjo has been involved with over 150 recordings including David Francey, Jim Cuddy and Natalie MacMaster.  Chances are he’s playing fiddle on one of your favourite CDs.  He has been playing since he was 17 and spent 10 years learning his craft by busking in Toronto.

John Showman has played fiddle since he was 6.  He started in classical violin until he was 19 and tired of it.  He didn’t play again until he heard Irish fiddle player, Kevin Burke.  And since then he hasn’t stopped.

Max Heineman was born into a musical family.  By the time he was 12, he was singing and playing bass with his family’s band in a weekly gig.  He got his first upright bass in high school and discovered bluegrass in 1998.

In 2009 they decided to form The Lonesome Ace Stringband and we are lucky they are gracing Desboro Music Hall with their amazing musicianship.  This is a show you don’t want to miss, especially if you love bluegrass.
