Chris Coole + John Showman

Chris Coole brings a solid command of the oft overlooked, but irreplaceable rhythm guitar styles most often conjured by the bluegrass guitar elders. To compliment, Coole possesses a compelling understanding of old-time music and has contributed trustworthy, original songwriting; songs whose plaintive clarity are beginning to find themselves sung, and recorded, by respected peers in the business. Classically trained in violin since childhood, John Showman has folded the sheet music, and emerged as one of the most dynamic, original, and exciting fiddlers in bluegrass music today. John also has the rare ability to understand the subtleties of old-time fiddle as well: which is why he won 1st place in the 2011 Fiddle Contest in Clifftop, West Virginia.
