Spring time has brought a lot of great times! Thanks to all the fine folks who came out to see Bawn In the Mash in Paducah, Murray and Louisville. I've also been fortunate enough to get to spend two great nights at the Kentucky Coffee Tree, in Frankfort, with all of my friends at the Thursday night jam! As well as music, I have been busy with the Kentucky Oral History Commission and also got to spend a great afternoon with my good friend Keith Norrington at the Howard Streamboat Museum. And I can't forget the amazing Derby Day String Band at the McCracken County Public Library. The rest of May looks to be just as exciting! I will be performing this weekend at the Moonshiners Ball in Berea, KY with both the Solid Rockit Boosters and Bawn in the Mash. The following weekend the Mash will be headlining the Paducah Lowertown Arts and Music Festival on Saturday night! Looking forward to seeing you all!

What a winter! I was proud to be apart of two amazing recording projects over the last couple of months. The first was a recording with legendary Kentucky fiddler, Charlie Stamper. Col. J.D. Wilkes, Josh Coffey, Layne Hendrickson and myself recorded a number of songs with Charlie at his home on Barkley Lake outside of Cadiz, KY. Look for a release in the summer! Also the Wheelhouse Rousters recorded our debut album at the historic River Discovery Center in Paducah, KY. Focusing on the songs of the Roustabouts, collected by Paducah native Mary Wheeler, the album will be available in June.
