JD Wilkes from the Legendary Shack Shakers new band

+ guests

Hailing from Paducah, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee, the Dirt Daubers have travelled the world singing loud-and-proud an eclectic mix of Appalachian, ragtime and hot jazz standards and their own original music. From cowboy to bluegrass, Harlem jazz to honky tonk, the Daubers tackle it all with vim, verve and vigour. Acoustic, Rockabilly, Country, Blues, Cowboy, Old-time music, Infernal jangling, yodeling and toot-a-looting.

Colonel JD Wilkes (songwriter and front man for the Legendary Shack Shakers), his wife Jessica, plus fellow Shack Shaker Mark Robertson, make up the old-time music trio THE DIRT DAUBERS!

With their first ever performance having taken place at London’s Raindance Film Festival, (after JD premiered his critically acclaimed southern-music documentary “Seven Signs”), The DIRT DAUBERS have proven themselves to be multi-media moguls. Add to that the tag of “radio darlings”, since the band has graced the stages of such fine programs as the Red Barn Radio Show, The Blue Plate Special and Music City Roots, broadcast over Nashville’s legendary WSM-AM, “The Air Castle of the South!”

Beyond that, the DIRT DAUBERS have gained the encouragement and/or approval of such varied stars as Les Claypool, Charlie Louvin, and Jello Biafra!
