We got a note from Doyle Lawson this morning with some further news about his touring band, Quicksilver.
“After about 4 years of playing guitar and then switching to bass, Corey Hensley has left the band to pursue other interests. Corey was a multiple vocalist during his stay here, and wrote or co-wrote some of the songs we recorded. We all wish him the very best in his future endeavors and I’m sure folks will be seeing him in a band configuration soon.
For those who may be curious, Eli Johnston will be coming aboard singing harmony and some lead. Eli is a multi-instrumentalist but will primarily be playing bass. And so another chapter is added to the ongoing saga of DL&Q!”
Eli will be starting with Quicksilver right away. He had worked previously with Monroeville.
You can find Doyle’s tour schedule online.
