 The Spinney Brothers Score First Career #1
“Memories” Tops National Bluegrass Chart
January 25, 2013 (Nova Scotia, Canada)—The Spinney Brothers, “Canada’s International Bluegrass Band,” are proud to announce that “Memories“, the first single from their latest Mountain Fever Records CD of the same title, has reached #1 on Bluegrass Unlimited’s  Top 30 Songs
chart for February. This is the band’s first time in the top spot of
the National Bluegrass Survey. In addition, the complete project has
moved up to #3 on Bluegrass Unlimited’s Top 15 Albums chart.
From the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada, brothers Allan Spinney on guitar and vocals and Rick Spinney
on banjo and vocals debuted their band in 1992, featuring a tight
brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its
energetic and distinctive sound. Since that time, the band has released 8
CDs independently and are recipients of many Eastern Canadian Bluegrass
Awards including 3-time Vocal Group of the Year. In 2010, The Spinney
Brothers were inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of
Fame. Joined by Gary Dalrymple on mandolin and Darryl Hebb
on bass, The Spinney Brothers have performed professionally all over
Canada and in the United States from California to Maine making them
“Canada’s International Bluegrass Band”. 
with all the accolades the band had gained on its own as an independent
artist in Canada, it wasn’t until the band signed with Virginia based Mountain Fever Records, subsequently releasing Memories
in 2012, that the band began gaining international acclaim, receiving
more airplay and booking more shows in the U.S. “I had been made aware
of The Spinney Brothers through a friend who suggested I give them a
listen,” states Mark Hodges of Mountain Fever Records. “I watched their
progress as a band for about a year and when I discovered they would be
in Nashville at IBMA’s World of Bluegrass conference in 2011, I made a
point to attend one of their late-night showcases. I was really pleased
with what I saw and heard and their enthusiasm was also a big factor in
our decision to sign them to Mountain Fever Records. We just couldn’t be
happier with their success.” 
Spinney Brothers have spent the first part of 2013 on a U.S. tour that
has included a very successful benefit concert for the International Bluegrass Music Museum
in Owensboro, KY. They’ve just returned from performing on a bluegrass
cruise and will continue their tour with shows in Florida and Georgia
before returning to their Canadian homes in February. Here are the
band’s remaining dates on this U.S. tour:
January 25th – Lake Wales, FL
January 29th – Largo, FL
January 30th – Zephyrhills, FL
January 31st – Sanford, FL
February 1st – Woodbine, GA
February 2nd – Davenport, FL
