Ironwood was formed in 1973, when back-to-the-landers discovered musical interests in common. David Hollis Morgan, guitar, banjo &vocals, Douglas Joshua Guilar, drums vocals, Jeffrey Hersk, guitar & vocals, Robert Wills, guitar, vocals and songwriting, Richard Wills, bass & vocals. Later slimmed down to a trio, Richard switched to drums, and Robert to bass. Recorded Randy the Lad at Snowcan Studio - most copies of disc burned with the old Riverview Inn. Years later, Ironwood reformed to play a benefit for Paul the Painter, with Dan Major on bass.

Elvis, Chuck Berry, Beatles, Grateful Dead, Pure Prairie League, Eagles, Steve Earle, Prairie Oyster,
Whatever's available. Inexpensive guitars and amps. We've been well-ser ved by Ibanez guitars. Recording; Fostex D-8, MacBook Pro/GarageBand, Sennheiser, Shure, Behringer microphones.
I have hours of recordings by various groupings in the virtual vault; I'll be bringing more out of hiding, as time permits. This music seems to age well, because it's about people and the things they do and feel.
