Album Notes
Deemed a "banjo virtuoso" by the Washington Post, Adam Hurt has fused several traditional old-time idioms to create his own elegantly innovative clawhammer banjo style, having been introduced to the banjo at age eleven in his native Minnesota. A respected performer and teacher of traditional music, Adam has played at the Kennedy Center and conducted banjo workshops at many venues around the country and abroad. Adam has placed in or won most of the major old-time banjo competitions including Clifftop, Mount Airy, and Galax, and won the state banjo championships of Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio, as well as the state fiddle championships of Virginia and Maryland.

Following up on the success of "Insight," Adam spent a year refining and recording new material for his latest CD, "Perspective," which was released in the summer of 2009. The focus is once again on Adam's highly individual clawhammer banjo arrangements of traditional music, with able support from fiddler Stephanie Coleman and guitarists Beth Hartness, Andy Edmonds, and IBMA Guitarist of the Year Kenny Smith. Adam's varied influences and sources are well represented on a collection of tunes from southern Appalachia and beyond, including selections from the repertoires of Marcus Martin, Ed Haley, and Bill Monroe.
