Emerging up from the various saloons and caves of Terlingua, Texas, Rocky Top busted down the doors of the traditional instrumental music scene in spring of 2010.
A (mostly) instrumental trio comprised of Pablo Menudo on Mandolin, Jim Keaveny (Good Ol Jim) on guitar, harmonica and percussion, Anna Oakley on fiddle, and Neil Trammel (of Doodlin' Hogwallops fame) on bass if they're lucky..They play foot-stomping, high energy renditions of Irish, Celtic, and American Fiddle and Folk Music.
With standout tunes such as “June Apple,” and “Rock the Cradle Joe” don’t be surprised if you find Rocky Top at the top of the traditional alien honky-tonk charts and beyond. www.facebook.com

After residing in various and distinct music communities around the planet from Johannesburg, South Africa, to Austin, Texas, and Portland, Oregon, I now live in Far West Texas, by Big Bend National Park, where I position myself for most of the year. During the summer, when temperatures can get close to 120 degrees, I am persuaded to migrate with my music. I have a catalog of well over 100 keepers, but only a tiny percentage has been recorded, which is the impetus for building an off-grid hand built studio in the middle of the desert. It is part of the mission to do this without incurring any financial or ecological debt.
But mostly it is about the Music. And the incentive to trek around the country is share the music with new listeners. www.treemusic.org
