No BordersWillis, VA -- Nova Scotia natives, The Spinney Brothers, release their new CD, No Borders, on Mountain Fever Records. Their first single “Grandpa’s Way of Life” hit radio in March and has been receiving great support from DJs nationwide. The Brothers are considered “Canada’s International Bluegrass Band,” and No Borders marks the band’s second release on the Virginia based label and is produced by well-known bluegrass musician Ron Stewart, who's recognizable fiddle playing can also be heard on several songs throughout the record. WAMU’s Bluegrass Country recently featured the Official debut of No Borders, on Tuesday, April 30th.

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. “Grandpa’s Way of Life” speaks right to the heart of their appreciation of those who came before them.

Comprised of Allan Spinney, Rick Spinney, Gary Dalrymple, and Adam Pye, The Spinney Brothers are originally from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia and debuted 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 rural heritage. By incorporating original material, which draws from various sources, the Spinney Brothers effortlessly intertwine the past with the present.

Their debut CD on Mountain Fever Records, Memories, garnered a #1 spot on the National Bluegrass Music Survey in February 2013 with the title cut and continues to stay at the top of the charts even after being released over a year ago. The band was featured on the April cover of Bluegrass Unlimited magazine and has a very active touring schedule in support of No Borders.

Amy Orlomoski, Host of WHUS Radio’s Bluegrass Café, out of the University of Connecticut is thrilled with the Spinney Brothers music and says, “After 20+ years of touring, the Spinney Brothers are on the path to becoming an “overnight success“ in the world of Bluegrass. The new single - “Grandpa's Way Of Life“ – (from No Borders) does nothing to stop that momentum, and with its nostalgic theme, the song serves as a perfect complement to the Spinneys' recent #1, “Memories.“ Congratulations to the Spinney Brothers and Mountain Fever Records!”

The Spinney Brothers duet singing, backed by supportive and complimentary instrumentation, is the foundation of their tasteful and recognizable sound.
