Shortly before we decided to approach the Castle with this idea, I just so happened to have dug back into songs I had written many moons ago while making my first spotify playlist (yep). When I started my solo thing, I sorta left the BTF material behind and began to build a new catalogue of tunes, not really looking back. Well, after hearing old stuff mixed in with new stuff on that playlist, I got the hankering to play the old stuff again.
So as the festival concept developed into a reality and we began to assemble the line up, it felt like the right time and place to bring the songs and the band back. Can't get much more Black Dirt than Backyard Tire Fire. I've put together an initial list of tunes and am whittling things down. Can't wait to close out this stellar day of music!
Chicago Farmer is bringing local rockers Wildermore to back him up for what is sure to be an epic FULL BAND SET. I love Farmer fronting a band. This'll be tight and rowdy. Hometown outdoor Farmer full band show?!?! Yes, please.
I had the pleasure of sharing a bill with Matthew Curry last year at the BCPA and we got to jam together and it was straight up sickness. He's one of the nastiest guitar players I know. And he can sing and write too. He has an old soul for a young man and his band delivers. Absolutely love what he adds to this festival.
Excited to bring out BLACK DIRT REVIVAL to play some of my new stuff!!! Love playing these tunes with these folks. We'll hit right after my good pal JOHN TILL kicks things off at 5PM with his one man soul country blues show. He brings it so ya don't wanna miss it!
