Americana is an amalgam of roots music formed by the confluence of the shared and varied traditions that make up the American musical ethos; specifically those sounds that are merged from folk, country, blues, rhythm and blues, rock and roll and other external influences.
WE ARE HAPPY TO HAVE JARED GROOM ON DRUMS FOR THIS SHOW...JARED PLAYS ON THE NEW CD PROJECT AND I HOPE TO HAVE HIM ON UP-COMING SHOWS... IT'S GOOD
These are my memories of Gamble Rogers, all are true and took place over fifteen plus years. Gamble had a very strong influence on "how I play music". He taught me and many others "the manners of music" and I will always be thankful ...Jim Carrick and I played Hank Williams "I'M SO LONESOME I COULD CRY" at Gamble's memorial service...and there is the thread ...Thanks to all that made this possible and thanks for watching...Don "THE MANNER OF THE MAN"
Playing the GAMBLE ROGERS FEST this MAY.This is always a great time and a joy to see many old friends.I knew Gamble and played with him on several shows.He was and still is a large influence on my music and personal life.
