Roe Entertainment has welcomed two new acts into their roster for 2012.
In addition to such celebrated artists as Michael Cleveland & Flamekeeper, Lonesome River Band, Dale Ann Bradley, Chris Jones, and Danny Paisley, Jim Roe is now representing The Tuttles with A.J. Lee, and The Expedition Show.
The Tuttles are a trio of young California pickers (Michael, Sullivan and Molly), under their dad, Jack’s direction, who have teamed up with another talented west coast youngster in A.J. Lee. Their first album together was released in the Fall of 2010, and they got Roe’s attention at IBMA 2011 where he signed them on the spot.
Here’s a couple of live videos from their shows…
The Expedition Show comes from the other side of the street. This a quartet of veteran performers, who are already familiar faces on the concert and festival circuit.
The group consists of former Blue Grass Boy Blake Williams on banjo, his wife Kimberly on bass, Wayne Southards on guitar and Alex Hibbitts on mandolin. Before re-forming as The Expedition Show, Wayne, Blake and Kimberly worked for many years with Bobby Clark as The Williams and Clark Expedition. Then, and now, their show has been noteworthy both for quality music, and hilarious on-stage comedy.
Here’s a look at them on stage.
Information on both groups can be found at the Roe Entertainment web site.
