Album Notes
"PERILOUS PURSUIT" with Scott Eager, Rich Starkey, Jim Daniels, Joe Spinelli. 17 tunes: hammered dulcimer, bluegrass, folk and originals.

"Ever heard of the Manitoba Sound? It's the mix of bluegrass and folk played by Andrew Roblin."
--Judy Collins, MetroArts/Thirteen television, New York City, 11/13/99

Andrew Roblin has played "Dueling Banjos" standing on his head, and he sings about it. He sings about the school bus that saved Winnipeg. He sings, as only a Canadian would, about the joys of 41-below winters.
Roblin also plays banjo, mandolin, jaw harp, guitar and hammered dulcimer. His music is a fresh musical style, a fusion of folk music and bluegrass he calls the Manitoba Sound. When Roblin plays the historic Manitoba buffalo tune "Red River Jig," he plays it with a driving bluegrass rhythm. And when Roblin plays "Short'nin' Bread," his banjo laces it with a Louis Armstrong-style solo.
Critics have embraced the Manitoba Sound. Within a few months of its release, Roblin's Perilous Pursuit CD gained scores of favorable reviews and airplay on more than 1200 radio stations.
In May 1997, Roblin earned the rank of #1 Canadian musician with DJs on the influential FOLKDJ listserv, getting more radio airplay than such formidable Canadian artists as Joni Mitchell and Gordon Lightfoot.
Audiences, too, have taken to Roblin. He may be the only musician around who gets audiences to sing, clap, yodel, grunt and do the Philadelphia Mummer's strut. Roblin's wit, originality and instrumental fireworks make each of his 300-plus shows per year a bona fide cultural and audience-participation experience.
From Philadelphia's Folk Song Society, which has featured him in its Odyssey series nine consecutive years, to New York's renowned Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Andrew Roblin's music and humor have won the hearts of thousands of fans and friends.

Bluegrass fans will love this disc as much as my daughter and I do
I fell in love with this CD almost 10 years ago now when I worked in the Manitoba Museum shop. I never forgot it in all these years and have recommended it to many Bluegrass loving friends of mine. Now my 18 month old loves to sing along to Bronco Buster! Worth every penny!
