    5 years in the making, from Ireland to Appalachia and back, my debut album: Red Rockin' Chair! The album includes my arrangements of a few Irish songs, an awesome, ripping' old-time song called Red Rockin' Chair (from which the album gets its name), covers of Scythian's "Song of Sacrifice" and Tommy Sand's "There Were Roses," and a few of my original tunes and songs written with an Irish and/or Appalachian feel.

I first heard this song at a Scythian show I went to in college. Having lived in 5 states and 3 countries growing up I really connected with the song and still really love it. It later played a role in my joining Scythian; I randomly recorded it for fun one night and sent it to Dan and Alex around the time the band happened to be looking to add a multi-instrumentalist. 4 years and 250 shows later I’m stoked to record this version of it! Alex wrote this song in honor of his grandfathers and their difficult decision to flee communism by leaving behind their homes in Ukraine and moving to America.
