Hello Fans of Three Quarter North,

Our new CD, “Back Home,” is now widely available as a digital download on iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, and others.  If you want a single - perhaps the beautiful Mark Smith title track “Back Home” or maybe the rousing Jim Atkins original "Pony Expresso," - you can download one song at a time.  Just search for Three Quarter North on any of these websites where you can also hear samples of many of our tunes.

Some people prefer something they can hold on to - something solid, something sure, something with the true fidelity of a physical CD.  If you’re one of those, you can order the whole package - complete with the fine photography and graphics of our friend MJ Adelman - from or directly from me.  To order from me, just email me ( your physical address and I’ll hand select one just for you and mail it to you postage free along with your invoice for $15 (includes tax).  

We have a busy July coming up so mark your calendars now for these upcoming shows:

"TQN revs up the fun right out of the gate with “Old Boys” – a look back at their own unwillingness to give up the music just because of their age. Smith’s friendly tenor, backed by warm harmonies, gently leads the way on the title track and folk offerings “Give Yourself To Me” and “Another Year,” while instrumentals are the band’s “let ‘er loose” moments on “Pony Expresso,” Dirty Old Rag” and “Star of Munster.” A radio evangelist’s preaching falls on the singer’s deaf ears on the hoot “Judgement Day,” and the topical subject of Wall Street “handouts” provides fertile fodder for “Too Big To Fail,” a kind of tune that seems to write itself – a sign of solid craftsmanship: “If you screw up, the check is in the mail/…There ain’t no chance you’re goin’ to jail/Uncle Sam’s gonna pay your bail/When you’re too big to fail.” Growing old is a theme TQN likes to explore, but their roots blend is as timeless as their nearby "  Janet Goodman, Music News Nashville

"The songs (on "Back Home") are arranged around Smith's strong guitar work and the instrumentation and vocal blends augment the sound. Recording quality is good."  Bluegrass Unlimited, Bluegrass Unlimited

"Three Quarter North are a five-piece band from upstate New York. The bands found a mutual love of bluegrass, folk and roots music and they let each style weave together as one pattern in their songs. “Sarah Light the Candle” whispers a fast paced prayer, the desperation in the request is not reflected immediately in the easy vocals but the force of the playing underscores the plea. As “Another Year” saunters into a song it walks on a solid rhythm with fiddle strings flying around the story line, “Star of Munster” dances to a traditional Irish reel and “Dirty Old Rag” scurries and scampers on a scratchy strummed bounce with fast-flying riffs. Three Quarter North deserve that Sunday rest if Back Home is any indicator of what they boys get up to on Saturday night."  Danny, The Alternative Root
