Separate and together, Bovine Social Club & Chad Dorou with special guest Joshua Glenn Finsel and Shawn McCarty of Free Range Folk promises a real barn burner! Bovine Social Club returns to the MCOH with their grassy, twangy, swinging breed of Americana sounds. One wicked lineup of seasoned jam musicians backs the thoughtful lyrics of vocalist, philosopher, memoirist and former monk, Samuel Saint Thomas. The Bovines’ carefully crafted twangrass songs of longing, loving, picnicking, gardening, confessing, and making the days go slow have sure become something to moo about.
Dobro legend, Chad Darou, by age 12 performed at the 1982 World’s Fair in Knoxville and at the Grand Ole Opry with Charlie Collins and Brother Oswald. While playing with Wheeler Creek, Chad was noticed by banjo innovator Bill Keith. In 1998, he toured Holland, Germany and Belgium with Rustic Blue. He has worked as a side man playing dobro, banjo, mandolin or guitar with artists James King and Dave Adkins. In his collective 39 years of playing music, Chad has appeared with The Lonesome River Band, Del Reeves, Boxcar Willie, The Gibson Brothers, Bill Harrell, and Frank Solivan & Dirty Kitchen.
Special guest Joshua Glenn Finsel is sure to please with his organic singer-songwriter songs from the earth with help from Shawn McCarty on mandolin, both musicians from JT!
“Every now and then you discover debut albums that deliver the goods. This one puts everything away in the cupboards, washes the windows, breaks your heart, makes you smile, slaps you on the fanny, and tucks you into bed. With the worldgrass vibe of Railroad Earth, and a grittiness all of their own that’s nothing but real, Bovine Social Club’s self-titled debut album is ten tracks of fun, fun, fun.”

“Working with Bovine Social Club was a unique pleasure. They were always up for an adventure, and that sense of adventure is totally evident in their music.”
