Redd Volkaert Plays The Country Blues

A few folks have asked me about Redd. Who is this guitar-playing cross between Santa and a plumber? He was a highlight of SXSW for me. A goal was to see as much Austin music as possible. There really seems to be an amazing amount of talent there, and a respect for music that has come before. Here he is playing with Cindy Cashdollar at the Texas Book Festival in 2008. It's my understanding that Cindy played with Ryan Adams on his release "Cold Roses". Sounds good:

And here he is doing "Home In San Antone":
