The Ironwood CD is here!


 Click the cow for liner notes and more

Ironwood combines the talents of singer/songwriter/guitarist Bill Ring with bassist Joe Crum, harmonica wiz Don Fenton, and lead guitarist Dave Redmond to make high-energy, adult acoustic music with lyrics that are always entertaining and often funny. Joining us on vocals is singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lora Pendleton. Ironwood plays a mix of originals and covers, including country, blues, and rock. New recordings are in the works. Stay tuned.

    Ironwood has appeared at The Dock and at the Haunt for Bernie Sanders; also Silver Line Tap Room, Stone Cat Cafe, Six Mile Creek Vineyard, Oasis Dance Club, Downtown Ithaca Apple Harvest Festival, Da Westy, Cyber Cafe West, and on Ithaca's own rock radio station, WVBR-FM.
