Two New Band Members for DETOUR!

PRESCRIPTION BLUEGRASS IMAGEA bit more news coming forth from the DETOUR Camp.   A new bass player was seen over the weekend at the Blythe, CA festival and now a photo emerges showing a new banjo player.

This is what Missy Armstrong had to say regarding the matter:

"After many inspiring years of music and mayhem with Detour, Jack and Kevin have shifted gears into calmer speeds and returned to real-life sanity beyond Detour.

PRESCRIPTION BLUEGRASS IMABEJack’s inventive bass playing drove Detour’s rhythm section and Kevin’s sparkling and spontaneous banjo delighted numberless listeners on stage and off. Both of them played an essential part in recording our CD, A Better Place, making it, in fact, a much better place.

These sterling musicians will be greatly missed and we hope all our fans and supporters join us in wishing them well.

Subsequently, two new Detouristas have signed on with the crew. Jeremy Darrow of Nashville, formerly with the Dixie Beeliners and a regular performer in Nashville sessions and stage shows, has joined up, along with Lloyd Douglas of Alpena, Michigan, on banjo, formerly with Jim & Jesse & The Virginia Boys and an occasional first-call stand-in with super-fiddler Mike Cleveland.

Jeremy and Lloyd have already invaded the studio to lay tracks for our upcoming CD project with Mountain Fever.  The excitement builds -- stay tuned!"
