Mad props to Twang Nation for bringing this to my attention. Seems Col. J.D. Wilkes along with his wife and Layne Hendrickson have formed a roots music band called The Dirt Daubers. Here is what their myspace profile says:
Colonel JD Wilkes (The Legendary Shack Shakers) and his wife Jessica, along with “Slow” Layne Hendrickson, make up the hillbilly/hokum trio THE DIRT DAUBERS! Hailing from western Kentucky, these three caterwaulin’ hooligans sing loud and proud an ecclectic mix of Appalachian, ragtime, and hot jazz standards and original music.
Color me intrigued! One of their videos on YouTube says they have a CD coming out in the near future. Speaking of their YouTube videos….here you go:
The Dirt Daubers – Sugar Baby
The Dirt Daubers – Wild Bill Jones
The Dirt Daubers – Wayfaring Stranger
