Chris Coole and Ivan Rosenberg

Welcome to the official website of the only clawhammer banjo and Dobro duo in the known universe!

“The dexterous duo is back with their brand of old-time clawhammer banjo and Dobro wizardry” – Elderly Instruments

“Chris Coole and Ivan Rosenberg’s Return to Trion is the follow-up to their terrific 2010 recording, Farewell Trion. Coole sings and plays clawhammer and guitar, while Rosenberg plays Dobro, resophonic banjo and sings. The eleven resulting tracks are stunning, which range from Robbie Robertson’s Stage Fright and the country classic Fool Such As I to traditionals like Georgie and Sail Away Ladies, and three originals. Great banjo picking by both players.” – Banjo Newsletter

“This Canadian duo is back after their release Farewell Trion with an even stronger set of material featuring Coole’s wonderful banjo playing and Rosenberg’s delightful resonator guitar mastery…The arrangements show off the virtuosity of these two great musicians while enhancing each piece. The clarity and rich substance of the material is shown in a new light drawing the listener’s ear to aspects sometimes lost in the rush…If you are a fan of great music that doesn’t always follow the rules, look no further.” – Bluegrass Unlimited
