THE COUNTY WELL is a genuinely unique blend of voices, instruments, and styles. At its core is a sort of "southern-ness" that ranges geographically from Tennessee, down to New Orleans, west through Texas, along the Mexican border, and into Southern California. This southern-ness is evoked by dobro, pedal steel, slide guitar, flute, trombone, nylon string guitar picked in both Bluegrass and Spanish styles, and piano and organ. The album is available HERE on Floating Records.
PETER KAUKONEN, San Francisco Bay Area guitarist, has played, toured, and recorded with Black Kangaroo, Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship, and Johnny Winter. His new album, CRAZY QUILT, is available HERE on
