Enjoy the old timey music of CW & Dr. Spitmore, honky tonk guitar and jug. Swingy, western, twangy, fun. The guitar – tin can National. The big jug – thrift store special. CW is so old school he’s almost fashionable. Learning guitar during the folk scare of the mid-60s, he has traipsed the by-ways of the silver state writing songs about dust devils and wild women. DR. SPITMORE brings an impeccable attention to detail and tone borne of his many years as a performer of Baroque music. His favorite jug is the one that works. Regulars at the Genoa Cowboy Festival, the Ponderosa Saloon in Virginia City, Bodie Days, Comma Coffee, The Third St. Farmer’s Market – perfect for bankruptcies, wakes and foreclosures! Look for them in all the best saloons, honky-tonks and outdoor markets.
(It’s been said that CW bears a striking resemblance to Chris Bayer and that Dr. Spitmore to that of Rex Reed.)
