Fishing Music is a recorded music project dreamed up by Ben Winship and David Thompson. The two spent countless hours collecting songs they thought captured the spirit of fish, fishing, and rivers—also contributing some originals to the mix; and then invited some of the top musicians from the new acoustic scene to bring their talents to the project. The Fishing Music Trio is comprised of the project’s core musicians Ben Winship (mandolin, vocals), John Lowell (guitar, vocals), and David Thompson (bass, vocals). The group has performed on NPR’s A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. Fishing Music was hailed by the Boston Globe as “a deliciously languid, breezy homage to the joys of the angler…” and former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw said “You don’t have to be a fisherman to enjoy this fabulous CD.” Fishing Music offers an intelligent musical statement that will resonate with anyone who likes good music, angler or not.
