-It’s going to be a good year, folks…lots of things in the works.
The band has been invited back to Europe in April and November. April will take the band through Germany to play the first Honky-Tonk Harbor in Hamburg, sharing the bill with Europe’s own The Country Side of Harmonica Sam. In November the band will be heading to France, Germany, Austria and Italy to play a few Hillbilly Festivals and some great club shows. Upon its return after April the band is set for a tour through the Southeast and then a recording session in Georgia. Then it’s back to the west coast to the historic central valley to stir up some dust and play some hot country music. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road and having some new music for everyone to enjoy.

It’s been a fun year, folks. The whole band toured Europe in March, the West Coast in May and June, and the old stomping grounds in the Midwest and Southeast in September. Got settled back in New Orleans in October. The band cut four songs in December to be released on a 45 coming up in the Spring.
So far 2018 is looking good. We got invited back to Europe in April for the first Honky-Tonk Harbour event in Hamburg. Then we will tour Europe again for the next month. Next it’s back to the West Coast for a great run up the historic central valley.

Between club dates I will be finishing up recording a new album for the German-based Blind Lemon Records. It is scheduled to be released in this fall. These shows will be performed solo and with special guest. Please visit the tour page on the website for complete show listings and details.

The Pigpen had another great year folks. The group toured the Southeast, the West Coast, the Midwest twice, played some great festivals, toured in Europe, recorded a brand-new album in Germany and that album will be released by the German based record label Blind Lemon Records. Now, we are back down here in New Orleans until the Spring. Looking forward to spending time here soaking up the music in this city and working on new material. You can find the group at several clubs around the city and like always busking on the streets each week.
