Great Bluegrass, then and NOW! Enjoyed jamming with Jason at Authenic Coffee recently... And with William a few months ago at KOA jam in Bowling Green. Loved the singing and their playing!

This music brings me back to my childhood listening to my father fiddling away playing Irish tunes which sound a lot like your Bluegrass it tells a stoy. Beautiful!

This is a great website for such a great band and some of the most wonderful, talented guys in the world. The McCormick Brothers are, and always have been, true entertainers in every sense of the word. They deserve much more recognition then they have ever gotten.

Great banjo picking. I've been a fan since the 50's. I still have the recording of Haskel's 5 string on 45 rpm. Would you describe the banjo that you play?

xI finally found you all! I grew up with traditional bluegrass and I have several 45's of The Mc Cormick brothers from the mid 50's. Some superb sounds! These 45's I have are in mint condition as I take care of all my recordings. Have probably a thousand I have collected since I was in high school in the early-mid 50's. Thanks for listening!

I'm not quite an ole' timer and I'm not a long time player so unfortunately my ears had not perked up about your music until a couple of months ago. I was taken aback when I heard Haskell play "Banjo Fling" on SIRIUS radio. I've since ordered (Amazon) about 6 (including duplicates) of your CD's. Had I known of your website I would have ordered from you. Haskell is my hero now - Earl can go home. I appreciate that Haskell plays straight ahead, driving, aggressive, confident, with an attitude, clean, and loud (I like loud). I'd really like to know some info about his banjer and setup preferences.I would like to be contacted about this and my email address added to your list - and invited to your Summer BBQ. ....I'm going now to get my "MOM" tattoo changed out with "Haskell". Great stuff guys. Bryce from Western Canada.

I am trying to reach Mr. Butts I think his name is please? He very kindly sent me the new "Somewhere In Time" McCormicks album which duly arrived here in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia, today. As expected, it is a marvellous album and I will be playing two tracks from it on the show this Friday evening your local Eastern time. Sincere thanks for sending out this wonderful album; I shall treasure it as I knew I would and of course feature it frequently on the show from now on.

Hi Buddy,

I am the advisor to the talent selection committee for Bluegrass Music Society of the Central Coast. The BMSCC puts on the Parkfield Bluegrass Festival Every year on Mother's Day Weekend. Next year will be the thirteenth.

Please forward a promo back on the band to me. I do not do Electronic Press Kits. I also do radio shows so send me all the CD projects the band has done (assuming that's not some ridicules number of CDs). I frequently give some airplay to groups that send me CDs

Thanks for your interest in our festival.

Hi there! If you have any more CDs available, we’d like a copy for KAOS in Olympia! We’re a freeform station, so it’s up to DJs to decide what they would like to play on their shows, but we make all of the albums we receive available for folks to preview and play as they choose. :) There are quite a few folks here who play bluegrass. If you would like to send a CD, our mailing address is below. Thanks!

My name is Hans Wolters and I'm a DJ for worldwide Bluegrass. I've been a McCormick Brothers fan since I was 14 years old and I would love to have a cd to play on my radio show (thursdays from 12 till 2pm).

I play the banjo myself for the last 30 years and travel each year once or twice to Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia to pick and sing. Maybe there is a chance we can meet next year in June...??

Please drop me a line and let me know how to obtain a cd and maybe we can meet in June 2011.

Best regards, Hans Wolters, WorldWide Bluegrass

As you know from listening to my shows I play all the atrists music that I get I plug them in between the masters (ie. top 30 songs and former top numbers). Glad to have your music...put me on your mailing list for future cd's from you guys. I spent a week at ibma getting new music and have uploaded several new artists to the mix library with more to go. If you send a cd to any dj include a separate page with writers info also so they can get credit.

I would be tremendously thrilled to receive this c.d. please? I host two shows per week on from our home in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. For some years now I have had the joy of having in my collection "The Very Best Of The McCormick Brothers", a beautiful ld collection, from which I play on the show quite often. Thus this new album would likewise be a treasure. I thus sincerely hope that you may be able to send out the c.d. when you can please?
