Nashville-based bluegrass/acoustic country act, The Likely Culprits, has brought in a new member. Ronnie Bowman will be playing guitar and singing with the band, stepping in for Ashby Frank who has signed a six month contract with Carnival Cruise Line to perform onboard their ships.
The group includes a number of Music City professionals who get together when they have time off from their other responsibilities. In addition to Ronnie, Deanie Richardson is on fiddle, Austin Ward on bass, Brandon Bostic on guitar, with Melanie Cannon and Garnett Bowman on vocals.
Their first show with Ronnie is scheduled for May 30 at The Station Inn in Nashville.
As for Ashby, he indicates that playing guitar and singing poolside while cruising the Gulf of Mexico has much to recommend it.
