In The Shop With: Johnny MacCree

I’ve had the pleasure to be in a few bands with Johnny MacCree, including Smith’s Ranch Boys and Golden Hill Ramblers. It’s always fun when we have time to get together and play some music.

Liner Note Legends #6: Smokey Hormel

It’s great to see guitarist Smokey Hormel featured on the documentary web series Liner Note Legends. The series gives recognition and insight to the talented musicians behind the scenes who have played on recordings in all genres that everyone has heard. I really enjoyed hearing Smokeys story in his own words. When you have time, check it out.
