Old Dollar Bill Comprise of Ed Henry and Stephen Clark who first met at a traditional music session in July 2009 and have since performed together as a duo and with fellow musicians from all over the world.
The 2009 Edinburgh Festival catapulted their popularity and Old Dollar Bill have since gone from strength to strength in both live performance and recording situations.
The 2010 Edinburgh Festival pushed Old Dollar Bill's popularity and success even
further with initial runs of the Self Titled Debut Album selling out in a very short space of time. In addition the album has gained international recognition and acclaim with glowing endorsements from Ike Sheldon of IMA award winners and Celtic Connections favourites
The Wilders from Kansas City Missouri.
In September 2010 Old Dollar Bill performed as part of the Dark Holler III Festival in Stirling alongside Furnace Mountain from Virginia and in October Old Dollar Bill embarked on their first French tour which was a huge success with talks in place for further tours in and around Europe and also the U.S.
2011 proved to be another great year for Old Dollar Bill, a year that saw them record with great musicians from Woody Pines to Ike, Nate and Phil from The Wilders resulting in the release of their new single 'Lucky From Kentucky' and their E.P 'Across the Tracks' giving Old Dollar Bill a total of three original releases in under three years.
In addition, all 3 releases while available on CD in 2011 also become digitally available on Spotify, Amazon, Itunes, napster and many more.
2011 not only gave Old Dollar Bill the opportunity to record but also perform with great musicians live from the likes of The Hot Seats to TOKYO ROSENTHAL, and in terms of Old Dollar Bill's own live performance 2011 saw them expand both in musical repertoire and instrumentation with the aim of constantly improving while still maintaining their expected high standard.
So far 2012 has seen Old Dollar Bill release their second album 'Lucky From Kentucky' to great early success, selling very well and gaining great positive reviews most recently from Glasgow based Americana writer Blabber 'n' Smoke
"Old Dollar Bill" are a grand addition to the local canon of Scots combos who can summon up a genuine feel for American music. In their case it's old time good time stringband
hoe-downs and rollicking country songs."
