Canaan’s Crossing has welcomed reso-guitarist Damion Kidd into the band, filling the spot vacated by mandolinist Josh Palmer.
Bassist Tim Maze says that the band has had their eye on Kidd for some time, and recently decided to try replacing a mando with a reso, as a number of bluegrass bands have done over the years.
“On our 2006 project, Side by Side, we had a guest dobro player on a couple of songs and we never forgot how we enjoyed it. That player was Damion, and when we decided on using an instrument other than mandolin, we gave him a call to see if he was interested.
After some prayer and family discussion, he gave us the nod last week. We are more than excited.”
In addition to Maze and Kidd, Canaan’s Crossing consists of Tina Miller on fiddle, Drew Long on fiddle, and Andy Wilks on guitar.
Miller is also looking forward to working with their newest member.
“I have known Damion since we were kids jamming at festivals and I would place him at the top of the list of dobro players. He sounds awesome with us.”
Look for a new Canaan’s Crossing single coming soon.
