J.D. WILKES (LEGENDARY SHACKSHAKERS) & HIS WIFE ARE THE DIRT DAUBERS

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

EDIT: While poking around their myspace profile I came across this picture titled, “Old spur line of the P&L RR, Paducah KY” which reminded me of one of my very favorite LSS tracks:
