Joey Wright - Jalopy
This variant is currently sold out
The 2007 release from Joey Wright.
Somewhere between the 150 dates a year Joey plays as the guitar/mandolin player with Sarah Harmer and the now legendary Toronto bluegrass ensemble, "Crazy Strings" and co-writing and playing songs with his Juno Award winning wife Jenny Whiteley, Joey found the time to write a plethora of music for his new album. This one, he decided, was going to be all instrumental, and he picked 12 of his favorites for the project. He also chose the material based on knowing the playing of the band he had envisioned. The Elphin Ontario and sometimes Toronto resident knew exactly who he wanted and he gathered an elite group of musicians from across Canada. He started with the one-two punch of Steve Dawson (Weisenbourne, resonator guitar and ukelele) and Jesse Zubot (fiddle, fiddle and fiddle), imported from the left coast. He then included the locally homegrown organic gourmet ingredients of Dan Whiteley on the mandolin and added all of this to the perfect base, the bass, of Joe Phillips. In the role of chef and concert master, Joey played guitar, slide resonator guitar, mandolin, slide resonator mandolin and tenor banjo.
