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

Saints Pro Bowl RB Mark Ingram suspended four games for violating NFL’s PED policy

New Orleans Saints Pro Bowl running back Mark Ingram has been suspended the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing drug policy.

Two former Detroit Lions employees who claim they experienced unequal treatment and disparaging comments because of their race have filed suit against the team, alleging they were fired because of racial and age discrimination….

Reid seems to think that it’s the owners — not general managers and coaches — who are preventing him from getting a fair contract to play football. Meanwhile, players like Torrey Smith and Devin McCourty have come out in support of Reid.

Ingram was born in Hackensack as the son of former Giants wide receiver Mark Ingram, a member of the Super Bowl XXV champions.

The younger Ingram grew up in Michigan, attended high school in the state and went to college at Alabama, where he won a national title and the 2009 Heisman Trophy.

As his son blossomed into a star and first-round NFL Draft pick, the elder Ingram spent more than six years in prison from 2009-15.

The suspension will cost Ingram about $1.2 million in bonus pay and game checks, according to reports.

The Saints might be the Eagles ‘ biggest challenger for the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs and a potential slow start without Ingram could make a difference later. They meet head-to-head in Week 11.sharks-044

He had nine strikeouts, eight of them swinging.

His counterpart, Mike Clevinger, was also throwing a no-hitter vs. the Yankees except through four innings. Aaron Hicks broke it up with a single up the middle to start the fifth.

The first-pitch temperature of the game was 61 degrees, with a little wind.

German lost his perfect game when he walked Jose Ramirez with two outs in the fourth inning. He also walked Edwin Encarnacion to start the fifth.

The former Cedar Creek High School star has used his redshirt and one year of eligibility and will be a two-time transfer if he lands at another school.

After his suspension and subsequent defection from Michigan, Rutgers coach Chris Ash gave Mitchell a second chance and later brought in his older brother , Damon, as a graduate transfer from Arkansas with the dual purpose of upgrading the wide receiver talent and being a mentor to his brother.

He hasn’t played in two years, three years, however long its been. So now that will be the new excuse as to why they won’t sign him. This article will be updated to provide more information on this story as it becomes available.

This is on the NFL’: cheerleaders urge league to halt ‘blatant discrimination’ More Fresh allegations follow continued claims of low pay, long hours and sexual harassment. Will commissioner Roger Goodell listen? Bailey Davis, one of two National Football League cheerleaders to file gender discrimination claims against the league, says she is disappointed that the commissioner Roger Goodell has yet to agree to a sit-down meeting, as cheerleader claims of sexual harassment and discrimination continue to mount.

In a stretch of 18 games without a day off in a 17-day span (April 20-May 6), they’ll face a mediocre Texas Rangers pitching staff (team 4.68 ERA, 1.46 WHIP), play a Thursday doubleheader against a pair of hittable Toronto Blue Jays starters, then make a three-game trip to hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium while missing Luis Severino in the New York Yankees’ rotation. The eight-game schedule is advantageous to Indians hitters, but more so is the fact that five of those games are scheduled to be played against left-handed starting pitchers.tigers_056-115x115
