There are a lot of acts out there that claim the traditionalist mantle, but there aren’t many as traditional as J.P. Harris. Harris is another one who hails from the southern Appalachian Mountains.
Out tomorrow: Sometimes Dogs Bark at Nothing by J.P. Harris.
Well, he’s not actually from the Appalachian Mountains. He started out in Alabama and spent time herding sheep for Navajo elders, hopping freight trains across the US, and working as a sheet metal scrapper, orchard worker, farm laborer, heavy equipment operator, and logger in between.
Check out JP’s Florida Blues #1 from the new album:
