Brian Vollmer & Claire Byrne ALBUM

Hello Everyone!

When we first met and began our courtship, we would spend the bitter and snowy evenings playing fiddle tunes and singing together. After a few months, we decided to book some shows. Fourteen months later, we are engaged and ready to put out an album of our favorite old-time duets and fiddle tunes!

In order to pay for all of the aspects of the project, we have put together this GoFundMe site. As is the case with any album, there are multiple things to pay for: the recording studio and engineer, the final mastering, the artwork for the album cover, the printing, producer, and PR will all cost money. We have come up with a budget of $5,000 to fund the majority of our project.

What we are offering for your donations:
-A pre-sale order of our Album is $15. When the release date is announced and we print up the CDs, you will be one of the first to get a signed copy in the mail.

-A donation of $500 or more will get Brian & Claire booked in your living room to entertain your friends and neighbors.

-For every donation ($5 or more) a free download of Our EP  will be given to you via e-mail

Our EP
Recorded at Artfarm Recording, a 150-year-old barn turned studio in the Catskill Mountains. Our gracious engineer Sean Boyd invited us down for a day of recording and we are hoping to return soon!

Name Your Price and Download Our EP  at the official Brian Vollmer & Claire Byrne web page:  Every dollar goes towards funding our Full-Length ALBUM Project!
