Nick Keen to Josh Williams Band

Nick Keen has officially accepted the mandolin position with The Josh Williams Band. He has actually been touring with Josh for the past month, and has now been announced as the newest member.

A North Carolina resident and native, Nick had been performing with Galax, VA-based Broken Wire and worked previously with Bradley Walker. He’s picked up his share of trophies on the contest scene.

Josh is delighted with their new hire.

“Nick’s melodic perfection and solid performances transcend any genre of music which has made him the best choice for JWB.  His tone and timing surpass most and we are excited to have him on board.”

The band will be on hand for much of this month’s IBMA goings on, and will appear at the Fan Fest on October 2. You can find their full schedule online.
