Pete Seeger/C Lanzbom
Music written, arranged and produced by Grammy Award winner C Lanzbom, for a compilation of spoken word pieces featuring Pete Seeger, compiled and presented by Grammy Award winner Jeff Haines.
After years of playing with other groups, I decided to start my own band. I called it a "Bluegrass" band, but we drew inspiration from every form of acoustic American music we could get our hands on.
Genres: Old-Time, Bluegrass, Texas Swing, Gospel, Vaudeville Jazz
Mixed and produced "Just Around The Bend"
For ten years I played dives and concert halls (some days back to back!) with Lenahan, featuring multi-instrumentalist and four time ASACAP award winning songwriter Tom Lenahan. The band was described as "Celtic-Rock", but we took Country, Ska, Reggae, Jazz and whatever else we could think of and somehow found a way to make it "Celtic". I recorded three albums with the band.
Genres: Celtic, Celtic-Rock, Country, Blues, Classical
Instruments: Fiddle/Violin, Electric Guitar, 12 String Guitar, Lap Steel Guitar
Co-mixed and co-produced "Brand New Bag!"
