Lonesome Ace Stringband

"Bluegrass Unlimited describes The Lonesome Ace Stringband as “Three powerful musicians playing some powerful music.” The band brings grit, skill and abandon to old-time, Appalachian folk songs and fiddle/banjo tunes. These are songs and tunes for life and all of it’s occasions: weddings, dances, wars, parties and funerals. The music comes from a tradition that has inspired and brought together generations of people. It’s themes - love, loss, hard work and hardship, faith, and everyday life - speak to everyone. The members are Chris Coole on banjo, John Showman on fiddle and Max Heineman on bass. Together they bring a deep respect for the roots of the music, a keen sense of innovation to the performance and material, and a passion for the sound that transcends both. This is old-time music for today's old soul. Formed in 2009 as a hometown haven for three busy professional, touring musicians - John Showman (Creaking Tree String Quartet, New Country rehab), Max Heineman (Annie Lou, Crazy Strings) and Chris Coole (David Francey, Foggy Hogtown Boys)- the trio has played 8 hours of music nearly every weekend in town at the Dakota Tavern's bluegrass brunches. Although the group has only recently begun touring, this is a group that has logged over a thousand hours of playing time together on stage and have the instinctual rapport and ease of execution of a seasoned, professional band to show for it."
