Ian Alexander serves up a feast of Bluegrass songs ranging from the uplifting to the darkest murder ballads. As a young fella he took his mandolin and travelled the southern states, playing festivals and jamming with the old hands, while keeping his ears firmly open.
Personal encounters with Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Peter Rowan and a Who’s Who of Bluegrass legends left their mark on the young Ian Alexander. In the intervening years his love for the genre has remained undiminished.
Festival goers of a certain vintage may recall his musical stylings with “Appalachian Strings”. Don’t let that put you off!
