News And Updates From Banjo Buck Thrailkill

Our good buddy Buck Thrailkill recently posted up his newsletter and after reading it, we realized just how much cool stuff he has going on and wanted to get it out to the masses. If you haven't heard much of Buck's banjo pickin', you are in for some amazing songs this year. With feature releases coming up with us and Farmageddon this year, Buck will be hitting stages across the country and showing how a banjo should be played.

"Hi Everyone, I hope you all had an AWESOME February... 

The NEWS just keeps coming for you so here we go...

There will be a lot of new recordings coming out this spring and fall with all of the groups I am involved with. There is also bunches and bunches of new merch, t-shirts, mugs, and more coming in. Almost have the song list finished for the SOLO Album. I have one more piece to finish writing, which will also be on the new album with Ronnie Hymes and Frank Ehlinger this summer from Rusty Knuckles Record Label. I also had the honor be being asked to record a track for upcoming artist Larry Frick for his new album. Check his band out. They are awesome.... And a true honor is going to be to record with my dear friend Erik Smallwood this year.

So help get the word out for the News Letters, Seasonal Letters, Gig Updates for Special shows, and so folks have an easy way to access me to send ideas for music, merch, or whatever. You can also contact my good friend Sheila Barker at Ready to Roll Street Team on Reverb or Facebook for information as well.
