Four dates only. Make that five…

The Small Ensemble is my new baby blue grass band. No, we’re not really blue grass at all, but we do use similar instrumentation. And we’re all acoustic. No drums or bass. This will not be a greatest hits set, we will be leaning heavily on recent and new material. Which isn’t to say we don’t play any old songs – we’ve already figured out 3 songs from Rattlesnakes – but we will not be attempting to reproduce the youthful attitude of the older material. I’m really excited with my first new band in a very long time. If all goes to plan, they will feature prominently on the next album, and we will tour in this format on the back of the release.

LC – Steel string guitar and banjo.

Matt Cullen – Steel string guitar and banjo.

Mark Schwaber – Nylon and steel string guitar, mandolin.
