J.D. Wilkes and The Dirt Daubers performs on 8/23

Plowboy Records is excited to announce J.D. Wilkes and The Dirt Daubers performing live at summer festivals like Whispering Beard Folk Festival and Muddy Roots Festival.

J.D. Wilkes and The Dirt Daubers recently released, Wild Moon, their third album to much praise. “Wild Moon, marks the band’s growth from an acoustic roots project to an amped-up quartet, soaked with blues and rockabilly,” writes the Missoula News. San Francisco Bay Guardian adds “Wilkes—a bonafide Kentucky Colonel formed The Dirt Daubers in 2009 with his wife Jessica…the album finds them mixing traditional sounds with an infectious rock attitude and approach.”

J.D. Wilkes and The Dirt Daubers is Colonel J.D. Wilkes (vocals, harmonica, banjo), Jessica Wilkes (vocals and upright bass), plus fellow Legendary Shack Shaker Rod Hamdallah (guitar) and Preston Corn (drums). The album features smoky baritone sax grooves compliments of Tom Waits’ sideman Ralph Carney. Visit the band online at thedirtdaubers.net or on facebook.com/thedirtdaubers.

Plowboy Records is helmed by punk legend Cheetah Chrome, professor, author and country music expert Don Cusic and Eddy Arnold’s grandson, Shannon Pollard. The label was established to promote the legacy of Eddy Arnold and to provide a home for projects that focus on American music regardless of genre. Look for Paul Burch tour announcement soon.
