UK Tour 

We're sad to announce that our UK tour that was set to start on January 7 is canceled. We are hoping to re-book this tour in December 2022. 

We also have dates booked Eastern US in February, and Alberta, Saskatchewan, and BC in March/April, and California in fingers crossed on all of that!

Much more to come. 

Adeline - A Weird and Funky Old-Time Album! - It's Alive!

John and Chris are so excited to be a part of this collaborative project with Adrian Gross (The Slocan Ramblers), Sam Allison (Sheesham and Lotus), and Mark Kiliansky (Golden Shoals). The album dropped today and is available for sale at and is streaming away on all the major music delivery services. 






The Anza Club in Vancouver BC has always been a "home away from home" for us. Back in November 2019, before the pandemic began, we played a great show hosted by The Pacific Bluegrass and Heritage Society. 
We captured both high quality audio and video from that night, and over the summer John mixed the whole show and we had it mastered by Andrew Collins. 

The result is a new album called "Lively Times". It available for download off this website, and humming on all the major streaming services

New Lonesome Ace Album Has Begun Cooking!

We recently spent a week in the studio and began work on what will be our sixth album!  

Following our pattern of alternating between a trad-based album and an album of originals, we have been doing a lot of writing and this album will be all original.  We're very excited about what's been manifesting. There has been lots to reflect on over the past year, and the muse has been active indeed! This album will be out late summer 2022.
