Will’s Musical News and Events

It’s been a while since I wrote about my musical endeavors here, so I thought I’d post a quick update.

My main band for the last two years has been The Night Trotters, a traditional bluegrass outfit with some top-notch musicians kind enough to join me. We’ve been playing around Asheville a bit, and we just finished an EP entitled Thoroughbred Bluegrass Music. You can listen to the songs from the EP on our website, and you can buy the whole thing for a very cheap price from CDBaby. It’s also available on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.

Needless to say, I’ve been playing banjo with The Night Trotters, but I haven’t forgotten about the drums.

My old pal (Chris) Morgan Geer asked me to play some gigs on drums with Drunken Prayer on a few upcoming dates to help promote the release of his new CD, House of Morgan. Some of the tunes from that album are reworked versions of songs he and I recorded way back in the days of 1995 (or so) at WWC. These tunes have been taken and integrated into new ways of hearing them thanks to the marvel of modern electronics.

So, we will be playing some of those old tunes, in addition to some new ones, at these fine establishments:

  • Nov 21 at The Double Crown (CD release show)
  • December 13 at Static Age Records
  • December 27 – to be announced soon.

Maybe I’ll see you there…
