Rate this Entry
In July of 2021, Bruce W. Honeyman released three CDs of original folk music in three different genres:

Americana, such as folk, bluegrass, old time, blues, swing, and country
World, including Hawaiian, African, Middle Eastern, Latin, reggae, and European
Irish/Celtic.
The CD collection is entitled Old Roots, New Branches, with each CD edition showcasing one of the different varieties.



Bruce has been a musician for over fifty-two years, playing music since high school and, over the decades, playing as a sideman on the guitar and mandolin in eight different folk ensembles. A strong desire to compose music blossomed during the isolation of the pandemic when his playing with other musicians became impossible. He was also motivated to undertake this legacy project by the approach of his 70th birthday (tempus fugit) and by his retirement from a forty-year private practice as a clinical psychologist. It was a natural time to envelop himself in his love of acoustic music of all types and create music of his own.



In his home studio in Fresno, Bruce recorded over fifty original tunes/songs. He composed all of the music, taught himself to make multi-track recordings, played all instruments, and sang all vocals. The resulting recordings vibrate with the richness of a full band. Instruments on the CDs include guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin, tenor banjo, five-string banjo, bass, slide guitar, harmonica, kalimba, percussion and hand drums.



Bruce s music is now available on all commercial digital platforms, such as Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, YouTube, and Pandora. CDs can be purchased by contacting the artist directly. If youd like to see Bruce play live, he currently performs with two Fresno folk groups: the Bad Actors, a bluegrass guitar duet with Doug Bremseth, and Lark, a quartet playing Celtic tunes from around the world. He will also perform solo in the right setting.
