King Wilkie video on Amazon

King Wilkie video on AmazonKing Wilkie has a “what I did on my summer vacation” video posted at, which offers a behind the scenes look at the recording of their newly-released CD, Low Country Suite. It covers to some degree how the IBMA’s Emerging Artist of the Year for 2004 went from a hip, young bluegrass act to an eclectic, grass/folk/rock amalgam in just three years time.

It’s an interesting story, where we see a successful touring band make the decision to come off the road, work day jobs outside of music, but remain together and active artistically – writing, arranging and planning for a chrysalis-like return.

See the six and a half minute video on Amazon, where you can also pick up the new CD.

UPDATE 8/21: Amazon is no longer hosting that video, but we have it posted here on Bluegrass Today.
