Introducing the Jellyroll Ramblers! Well not exactly "introducing". We've had a few gigs including a great night at Artichoke Music. But we're still a new band in my book. The Ramblers are Craig Birnie on bass, my lovely wife Kay Everts on Drums, Pat Stilwell on violin, mandolin and occasional guitar and of course me on guitar and vocals. We're playing the old time blues and ragtime that I love.

My CD "Leave the Blues Behind" is still available on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby. To check on the tunes and purchase a copy click here. This is what folks are saying about Leave the Blues Behind:

“Authentic blues with soulful guitar. Lively, satisfying listening on both the vintage classics and Wade's well-crafted original songs. Do not miss the tracks where Wade and Mary Flower duet on guitar. They are an outstanding pairing.”
Laurie Sonnenfeld, Folk Music Programmer, KBOO radio, Portland, OR

"Howard has a great feel for fingerpicking this century old roots music. Never rehashing the same old but creating his own compelling arrangements, he is an old soul in this modern world of ours. It was a pleasure to work in the studio with this relative newcomer whose focus on this genre is honest and refreshing as the day is long."
Mary Flower, Master Fingerstyle Guitarist

“Howard Wade is an exceptional acoustic guitarist … His debut recording, Leave the Blues Behind, is filled with terrific fingerpicking that makes this traditional music come alive … Very melodic and inspiring … A wonderful, captivating release by an artist that is more than worth all efforts to check out.”
Greg Johnson, President, Cascade Blues Association (from a review in BluesNotes; for the full review click here)

"Howard has a warm voice and his guitar is very good indeed. This is an excellent album that all acoustic fans should consider."
R. Jim Greaves, Blues in Britain magazine (for the full review click here)
