if not, i think he should be. amazing song writer who plays guitar in that old timey feel. the simplicity and intensity of his lyrics are blowing me away these days.
"Law and the Lonesome"
He played the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival last year I believe (the years all roll in to one).
He was very well received. I dug his set.
He's from around my neck of the woods I think. OK songwriter.
