J.D. Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers
Founded by J.D. Wilkes and his wife Jessica, the Dirt Daubers were originally intended as a side project to the raucous rock ’n’ roll of J.D.’s “day job” as front man for the Legendary Shack Shakers. The Dirt Daubers navigated some of the same territory as the shack-shaking ones, but with more fealty to the acoustic creepiness of old-timey players like Dock Boggs and Roscoe Holcomb. With the Shack Shakers now on sabbatical, the Daubers have become Wilkes’ main focus. For the new album, Wild Moon, the Wilkeses have plugged in, adding more volume with the addition of electric guitarist Rod Hamdallah and drummer Preston Corn. But that doesn’t mean the backwoods themes of sin, suffering and salvation have left the church house. With singer-songwriter and Ozark fireball fiddler Betse Ellis opening, it’s sure to be balm for the soul and all that ails ya.
