Y'all should also check out the South Austin Jug Band. Great stuff. Buddy of mine used to be their bass player, but I think he's had to get a "real job" here recently.
Holy moly Cliff, I just got an e-mail from the Keel web site and they are on tour with Tony Rice.
Ain't that a coincidence that we just happened to be talking about them.
Here is part of it,
WITH TONY RICE
The past week on tour with Tony Rice has been nothing short of stellar. We've done many incredible shows over the years with Tony, but he has brought a whole new bag of magic to the stage this time, and Larry & the Bridge have been conjuring up music from it that has certainly reached new and exciting levels. Tonight is the final night of the run and they are playing to a Sold Out crowd at NPR's Mountain Stage. It should be aired on the radio in the coming months, so stay tuned to our website for more info.
Later this week, the band will be picking in Fairmont, WV tomorrow night at the College Lunch, the Sound Factory in Charleston WV on Friday, and then the Wild Bean in Lewisburg on Saturday. On Dec 28, Larry and Jenny will be doing a holiday duet show in Staunton, VA at Queen City Brewing. All this will gear them up for the biggest night of the year...
Purty cool eh. J.
