The Dirt Daubers (USA) in Dublin, 13 July 2012

Thanks to Paul Foley of the Ubangi Stomp Club in Dublin, for this news and press release:

The Dirt Daubers
Whelan's (Upstairs Venue), Wexford St., Dublin 2
Friday 13 July 8.00 p.m.
Tickets €15 from www.tickets.ie or from Whelan's website.

Colonel J.D. 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!

Hailing from Paducah, KY, and Nashville, TN, 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.

With their first ever performance having taken place at London's Raindance Film Festival, (after J.D. 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 programmes 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'!

Presented in association with Dublin City FM.

The Dirt Daubers are also playing in Ireland on 11 July at the Crane Lane Theatre, Cork city, and on 12 July at the Enler Delta Blues Club, Belfast, as part of a tour in western Europe in the first three weeks of July. Full details, including online booking links, are on their tour schedule. You can also hear their music on their website, and watch them on YouTube.
