New Release Now Available!

Three Ring Circle (Rob Ickes - dobro, Andy Leftwich mandolin/fiddle, and Dave Pomeroy - bass) are world renowned instrumentalists whose self titled debut cd was nominated for IBMA "Instrumental Album of the Year". They have worked with everyone from Chet Atkins to Earl Scruggs to Alsion Krauss, but as Three Ring Circle, they have created a unique style and sound all their own. Their second CD, "Brothership," features 6 originals co written by all three members, 2 compositions by Leftwich, and well chosen covers by John Scofield, Ralph Towner, and Tom Petty, whose song "Wildflowers" is sung with bittersweet perfection by special guest Jon Randall Stewart. Now available right here!

Here's an early review...

"Three Ring Circle is back, doing what they do best: raising the bar to dizzying heights in their “bluegrass meets rock meets jazz” world. They do it with tone, taste and absolutely unbelievable chops." — Matt Blackett, Guitar Player Magazine


Debut CD

"Three Ring Circle" is the self titled debut album from Rob Ickes, Andy Leftwich, and Dave Pomeroy, and is an amazing fusion of bluegrass, jazz, funk, rock, and classical influences. The album features 7 originals by the band, and imaginative covers of songs by Stevie Wonder, Jeff Beck, and Bireli Lagrene. The CD was nominated for IBMA's "Instrumental Album of the Year" award, and has garnered great reviews in publications from Frets to Downbeat.

Melding sweet lyricism, audacious virtuosity and greasy funk in extended takes on both originals and well-chosen covers, Three Ring Circle's debut is both bold and engrossing in a way that's likely to take listeners who know Ickes and Leftwich only from their main gigs by surprise." --No Depression Magazine

Thanks to all of you who bought our first album and came to our shows over the past few years. The three of us are all really excited for you to hear our second CD, Brothership. We had a blast writing and recording it, and hope you enjoy the new tunes too. See you soon at a show, please stay tuned as dates come in!

-Rob, Andy, and Dave


Three Ring Circle is a "jamgrass acoustic power trio" formed by three of the hottest pickers to be found anywhere - Rob Ickes on Dobro, Andy Leftwich on mandolin and fiddle, and Dave Pomeroy on bass. Individually they are world renowned players who have worked with everyone from Elton John to Ricky Skaggs, Earl Scruggs and Bruce Hornsby, but as 'Three Ring Circle', they are collectively blazing a new trail for fans of instrumental music everywhere. Their music is exciting, innovative, emotional, and as Duke Ellington used to say, "Beyond Category". Thanks for visiting!
