With his debut solo album, Missing Ghosts, Anthony Ihrig brings stringband instruments and bluegrass chops to the world of modern folk and Americana music, combining smart and thoughtful lyrics with tight vocal harmonies and expert picking.
Recorded at Wild Sound Recording Studio in Minneapolis, Anthony assembled some of the finest string players in the Midwest for the album, including Eric Christopher (Minor Planet, High 48s Bluegrass Band) on the fiddle, Jed Germond (guest w/ with Pert Near Sandstone, Cactus Blossoms) on mandolin and pedal steel guitar and Dan Christensen-Cowan (Free Range Pickin’, Trio Sem Nome) on the upright acoustic bass.
Anthony is featured on the guitar, banjo, dobro and percussion and wrote and arranged all of the songs on the album.
