Reagan BoggsFor a couple of years, I was very fortunate to have performed all across East Tennessee and North Carolina with singer/songwriter – Reagan Boggs from Pound, VA / Kingsport. TN.

We met each other in the winter of 2004. I had been listening to her sing for many years and recognized her spectacular voice and a true gem from the Appalachia’s with talent that blends everything from Loretta Lynn to Bonnie Raitt and Nora Jones.

She’s a honest songwriter and bold–hearted female voice and my time with her has been some of the most enjoyable opportunities I’ve worked with.

From humble original songs filled with local color to hard-hitting blues and entertaining covers. We performed as band and also worked together as a duo. We had some great times along the way at Bristol Rhythm and Roots, Blue Plum Festival, WETS, WDVX, WBIR, as well as clubs and festivals throughout three states.

Along the way, played with incredible players including;
Doug Habenna – Bass
Greg Smith – Guitars
Jason Crawford – Banjo/Mandolin
Alan Gamble – Drums
Kevin Light – Bass
Kevin Jackson – Fiddle
Jim Price – Bass

Reagan released her second album (‘Never Looking Behind’) and I worked with her to promote this in small rooms and was replaced when she transformed into a more mainstream bluegrass personna.

Here is a great collection of live performances from my work with Reagan Boggs. All songs marked by asteriks are original Reagan Boggs songs.
