Janky Headlining the 7th Annual Republic of Texas Cigar Box Guitar Festival

Texas doing it upright with the 7th Annual Republic of Texas Cigar Box Guitar Festival. Gonna be a great day of CBGs. Little Bear opening followed by Graham Warwick and Janky’s good friend, Todd Roth with Comin’ Up Muddy. Todd often sits in on Harp when Cody Cotton can’t make it.

Janky’s full CBG CD release has been moved back to January since now is the wrong time to release a CD. Also, Little Bear who opens has many vocal spots on the new CD.
