The Farm Hands Bluegrass Quartet has announced that guitarist and vocalist Kevin Williamson is leaving the band at the end of the year.
The Quartet works a very busy schedule, and Kevin has a young family at home. He also works as a solo children’s performer and felt the need to release some of his responsibilities.
Tim Graves, who plays the reso-guitar and sings with the group, tells us…
“We love Kevin and we will miss his talent and contribution to the group. We wish him the best.
We are sad to see Kevin leave but we are excited about some options and possibilities we are considering. 2014 is shaping up to be our best year yet. We expect to have some exciting news to announce very soon.”
Remaining with Tim are Bennie Boling on banjo, and Daryl Mosley on bass. They have put together an interesting challenge for aspiring songwriters, inviting anyone who has never had a song recorded by a professional artist to send them in. They will choose the best one they receive to record on their next album.
