Album Notes
Raised in several countries in South America, came of age musically in the Chicago blues scene, working with Blues Hall-of-Famer Lonnie Brooks. After moving to Knoxville, Tennessee, joined Terry Hill's Balboa, which worked out of the NYC area for several years and was voted one of Knoxville's Best Bands Ever. Worked on TNN's "I-40 Paradise" and "Pickin’ at the Paradise" music television series, performing with hundreds of country, pop and Americana artists. Formed the hqband, which won over a dozen Best of Knoxville awards and released 5 recordings. For many years (and still, when possible) toured and recorded with R.B. Morris, whom Lucinda Williams has called the greatest "unknown" songwriter in the country; was (and remains) a member of the regional swing and honky-tonk institution Lonesome Coyotes; and with Terry Hill formed the fictional band UWP. A recent solo recording, Field Notes, follows his 2007 all-acoustic release Wherever You Go. Now living in Charleston, South Carolina, performing solo, with fellow East Tennessee ex-pat Kevin Crothers and various imaginary bands, periodic Lonesome Coyote gigs, and sitting in with Roger Bellow's Drifting Troubadours whenever they'll allow.

Bluegrass Unlimited: "The songs are refreshing in that they offer something much deeper than just another rehashing of standard bluegrass warhorses."

Blues Revue: "Qirko and company's commitment to each note is unmistakable."

Metro Pulse: "Qirko never fakes the funk."


to write a review


Dang, this is really good stuff
This is a fabulous CD on a number of levels. The musicianship is first-rate, the songwriting is clever yet mature, and the artwork is outstanding. Mostly, though, Qirko and company have managed to put together an upbeat bunch of tunes that both defy easy genre classification and yet maintain an edgyness that keeps the music rooted in a blues vibe. Not an easy thing to do with all those mandolins, but somehow they pull it off. Buy one. You'll be happy that you did.


Just Buy It
Didn't know of him when I read a positive review of his latest 'blues' CD, couldn't find it online so I checked this out while I was here. Obviously liked the snippets and after a couple years I finally bought it. Unbelievable ! Budget's review pretty much says it. I'd like to add there's no pretension here, total class. And darned if I can detect any drums throughout. Just wonderful, wonderful, and more wonderful.
