Opening: JD Wilkes of the Legendary Shack Shakers
Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band has built its reputation the long, slow, hard way. After 12 years of playing as many as 300 shows each year, Rev. Peyton, the world’s foremost country blues finger-style picker, along with the biggest little band in the country has pieced together one of the most dedicated followings out there. This following is sure to eat up the band’s latest offering, Poor Until Payday, (the second on their own Family Owned Records label through hip Nashville indie Thirty Tigers) out October 5th, a country blues record that was made the right way — two feet on the ground and both hands getting dirty.
J.D. Wilkes' solo album Fire Dream on Big Legal Mess/Fat Possum. Imagine a sideshow blowing in on a Caribbean gale, only to land smack dab in a Kentucky junkyard. Then, and only then, might a listener begin to picture a suitable setting for FIRE DREAM, the latest solo album by musician/novelist J.D. Wilkes. Backed by an all-star cast of the South's most eclectic musicians (including members of both The Squirrel Nut Zippers and the Drive-By Truckers!), Wilkes crafts a soundscape of his homeland's varied voices. From the old-time music of Appalachia to the Cajun, jazz and island music of the Creole nether-glades, Fire Dream charters the listener on a journey... a journey, as it turns out, that has led only deeper into J.D.'s storied psyche
