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.

In 2010, Adam collaborated with luthier David Hyatt and musician and recording engineer Paul Roberts to create "Earth Tones", a solo CD of compelling music played exclusively on the gourd banjo. This project, released in 2010, has received critical acclaim from the banjo community as something altogether new and different, both among Adam's own recorded work and among the greater catalogue of old-time banjo recordings.
