- Great Bay Stomp CD and Banjo Tab Book with 19 tunes. - Here's a review of the CD:


“On this release, Ryan puts fiddle and band behind, and lays out 19 tracks of rock solid, solo, traditional claw hammer banjo...All are played confidently, evenly, and with a maturity that comes from living with the music over time...The impression this recording gives is that of Thomson at home, relaxing with familiar tunes, and just having a comfortable time....Great Bay Stomp CD is a solid, pleasing and highly listenable recording that stands up well through repeated listening.”
