We thank the good people at Albino Skunk Fest in Greer, SC for their hospitality and appreciation when we played there on April 13. Hope to get back there soon.
Special thanks to Rolling Stone Germany for giving Run Skeleton Run a 4 out of 5 stars review!
I've always loved the music of the Carpenter Ants, the gospel soul
group from Charleston, West Virginia. I had the pleasure of playing
with them as my backing band in April. We played in Charleston, West
Va.; Pomeroy, Ohio; and Parkersburg, West Virginia. They'll be playing
in the Charlotte area at Olde Dallas Brewing on a bill with the
Serpents and me on October 27. Look for other gigs in the area. Read more here.
I had the great pleasure of playing 5 shows with Kyle Petty this
Spring. It was a real treat getting to know Kyle, his cool wife
Morgan; and a bunch of really fine songs Kyle has written and
performed. We swapped songs in Charlotte, NC; Johnson City, TN;
Greer, SC; Winston-Salem, NC and Chapel Hill, NC. We're planning more
of these for the Fall and Winter. Stay tuned.
The Serpents and I are looking forward to playing again at the U.S. National Whitewater Center, Sunday, May 28, this time on the same bill with Shovels and Rope. We will have both vinyl and CD copies of the new album, "Run Skeleton Run" for sale. We will be cranking out songs from the new record, as well as some from older releases, and covers we feel like playing. We're stoked. Hope to see you there. dc
I'm going back to Mountain Stage Radio Show in Charleston, West Virginia, to perform with the Serpents, on Sunday, May 7. We're on a bill with Loudon Wainwright III, Mipso, Nancy & Ruth, and Liz Longley. This will be the third time Robert and I have played the show; Geoff's second time; and Korey's first. We will be joined by special guest Sue Foley on guitar.
We will have vinyl and CD copies of the new album, "Run Skeleton Run", as well as T-shirts, for sale.
Hope to see YOU there...

If you missed it.... Humble thanks to MerleFest for letting us play the Watson Stage this past Sunday morning. To be on that stage where so many great players have shared their talent with people....was down right spiritual. And many thanks to all the old fans who came out, and to the new ones who took a minute to give us a listen and then let us know they liked what they heard. We hope to play for you again. - David Childers
