We’re back in the studio

We are in the thick of the recording process in the brand new Rope Room studio in downtown Astoria, OR. In order to cover recording, mixing, mastering, CD and vinyl printing costs we’ve started an indiegogo campaign to help raise the funds. We have a stack of original and traditional songs that we are really excited to share with you. We plan to make an album that will showcase what we do when we're playing as we do most of the time- as a duo. The album is taking shape and will be among other things a celebration of the ballad tradition, a showcase of the songs we've written, and the results of our explorations into the vast and rich catalog of the American Old Time, early Bluegrass and Country music traditions. We will be offering pre-orders of the album and other packages that include music lessons, both of our previous full-band albums and The Horsenecks live at your party or event. We appreciate your support! Read more about our project and our goals here!

Feature 1

We're celebrating the release of our second album Fiddlehead! Recorded in Portland in late 2017 and all live around a single microphone at Dancing Bear Studio with Alan Garren, Fiddlehead is a dynamic collection of old time fiddle and banjo tunes, rare songs and original music. Linotype cover printed by Brain Bagdonas at Stumptown Printers.


Praise for ‘The Horsenecks’

"...on every track their talent is self evident...                                 

...Gabrielle’s fiddle playing has a real energy and a complexity that is stunning...                                                                                             

...Barry’s banjo style is jaw dropping whether he is playing the open back banjo and clawhammer style to produce melodic and mellow tones or the bluegrass picking style..."
