On No Borders, The Spinney Brothers insert a freshness towards and an excitement of traditional bluegrass music that is an identifying mark for their music. The first single, “Grandpa’s Way of Life” speaks right to the heart of their appreciation of those who came before them.

“'Grandpa’s Way of Life' is a real pleasure to bring to the listeners and we are so honored to have recorded it,” says Rick Spinney. “It’s a song that most all of us can relate to or have some connection with, pertinent with our Grandparent’s generation as well as the modern age of computers and cell phones of today. This is a Brink Brinkman song. Brink is one of the finest writers we have come to know,” he adds.

The Spinney Brothers are comprised of Allan Spinney, Rick Spinney, Gary Dalrymple, and Darryl Hebb. Originally from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, brothers Allan and Rick debuted their band in 1992, showcasing a tight brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound.

The cornerstone of their musical identity is their thorough understanding of traditional, southern-flavored bluegrass music. The first generation bluegrass legends have been an important musical influence, yet the Brother’s music is equally shaped by their personal lives and local heritage. By incorporating original material, which draws from various sources, the Spinney Brothers effortlessly intertwine the past with the present.

The Spinney Brothers duet singing, backed by supportive and complimentary instrumentation, is the foundation of their tasteful and recognizable sound. No Borders will be officially released world wide on May 7th.

Theme by Danetsoft and Danang Probo Sayekti inspired by Maksimer
