Field Notes CD cover


2015. In part a follow-up to "Wherever You Go," in part new directions, this collection of virtually all original acoustic/electric songs also features the musicianship of new and old friends Roger Bellow, Jack Burg, Kevin Crothers, Mark Fain, Steve Horton, David Johnson, Daniel Kimbro, Sarah Pirkle, Johnny Spell, and Ron Wiltrout. "Sometimes a performer can be great without being over-the-top, overbearing or overly noticeable; Qirko is that subtle breed of bluesman..." Country Standard Time.


Hector Qirko | Wherever You Go


2007. Featuring SGMA's Studio Musician of the Year David Johnson, Mark Fain (Ricky Skaggs' Kentucky Thunder, among many others), and fellow Lonesome Coyotes Steve Horton and Maggie Longmire, this is a solo project of original acoustic music. it spans styles from blues to bluegrass, with fiddle waltzes, folk, gospel, and even a bit of Cuban son thrown in (and one Johnny Cash tune). "The songs are refreshing in that they offer something much deeper than just another rehashing of standard bluegrass warhorses." Bluegrass Unlimited.
