Carl White joins Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver

Carl White & Doyle LawsonDoyle Lawson & Quicksilver welcomed their new bass player, Carl White, this past weekend. The 27 year old bass player hails from Richlands, VA where he grew up singing southern gospel music.

Doyle has seen a number of band member changes recently. The most recent being the departure of Ron Spears. Jamie Dailey, long-time band member on guitar and vocals, will be leaving the band after this coming weekend.

Carl has stepped in to take over the bass duties, rounding out the current line up which features Darren Beachley on guitar, Joey Cox on banjo, Alan Johnson on fiddle, and of course, Doyle himself on mandolin.

Carl left these comments on the forum at Doyle’s website.

I just got home a bit ago from my first week out with Doyle,what a great time that we had!!! All of the band members and staff of DL&Q have made me feel so welcome, not failng to mention the unbelievable support and overwhelming response I have gotten already from DL&Q’s wonderful fans. I count it an honor to be a part of such a wonderful group of people. My first week felt like I had been there for years.

Be sure to keep an eye on Doyle’s tour schedule to know when and where you can hear Quicksilver near you.

    There seems to be a lot of turn-around in Doyle’s band lately. Barry Scott’s gone, Jamie’s gone and now Ron Spears is gone after a pretty short time. Is there some story behind all this? Or is it all just the usual bluegrass re-shuffling?
