Here is some of my music. These are videos of requests by my home-bound friends to entertain them, and you all, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some are also pre-COVID recordings. I hope it helps raise your spirits.
me performing with Molly’s Mutts, my Americana/Roots/Nostalgia trio.
Greetings! As the pandemic continues, I’m slowly finding ways to work with my musician friends. Big shout out to Andy Mosholder of Harper’s Ferry, VA, who took the time to add a bass track to my earlier video of “Your Cheatin’ Heart.” Thank you for keeping time when I was soloing and didn’t always stay in tempo. And thanks for giving me some musical companionship. Look for more collaborations uploaded and thanks for listening!
“Paper Wings” by Gillian Welch. Recorded a couple of years ago at TNT Studios in Louisville. Personnel: The “Bourbon Sidecars” with: Michael Jackman (acoustic, acoustic lead, vocal), Erich Stem (fiddle), and Tim Haertel (upright bass). Added some photos of pre-pandemic music life because I miss it so much.. Here’s looking forward to gigging and hanging out with our music buddies again!
John Prine’s “Angel From Montgomery”, featuring Michael Jackman (acoustic guitar/vocal), Andy Mosholder (cello), & Aaron Lambert (cajon, percussion). Cello arr. by Andy Mosholder. I hope you enjoy this arrangement. Thanks to Andy (Harper’s Ferry, VA), and Aaron (New Albany, IN) for providing virtual tracks so we could still do music during the pandemic.
