“If you dig Son House and Townes Van Zandt, Lincoln Durham is your man, it don’t come no cooler ”~Ray Wylie Hubbard Lincoln Durham, born in Whitney, Texas. Raised in Itasca. started playing fiddle at the age of four. That’s right, four years old. By eight, Lincoln Durham was performing in fiddle contests all over Arkansas and Oklahoma. In fact, at ten he won the Texas State Youth Fiddle Championship. Come twelve, the young man hooked up a residency with the house band at the Oceola Opry. Then, through his high school years, Lincoln decided to pick up the strat. He started a three-piece band playing who else but Jimi and Stevie Ray. Took a spell, though, and put the guitar on the backburner for a while to pursue art and design. but, a couple years ago, he grabbed a resonator, a slide and an old Gibson j45. He impressed Ray Wylie Hubbard so much with his greasy, nasty sound that Ray signed on to produce his record. The Dirt Drifters play top-drawer country music, bringing vintage sounds and sensibilities up to date in a country landscape hungry to reconnect with its roots. Theirs is music that wears the dust and grit of life's highway, and it's about to be catapulted from the roadhouses to the nation's airwaves, to be cranked in old pick-ups and vintage Cadillacs alike. It is music meant to be experienced by all the senses. Strap yourself in. Ponty Bone-In the Lone Star State, where the squeezebox pervades the musical landscape, Ponty Bone is an authentic Texas accordion King. He's a master of the instrument who has played with some of the state's most influential artists and infused his instrument and talents into a myriad of popular and roots musical styles, in the process winning an international reputation. bios courtesy of http://www.lincolndurham http://www.pontybone http://www.thedirtdrifters.com
