Artist Spotlight: John Popper & The Duskray Troubadours

John Popper doesn’t know what came over him that one night last winter, although he has a pretty good idea.

“Something in me kicked in and I just floored it,” says the singer/harp slinger, referring to a brief, Beethoven-scored joy ride, that was the trip from his home to the recording studio in Santa Fe. “It was absolutely exhilarating. I felt free, because I was going to do something I loved, and just for me.”

That something was a month-long recording session in the mountains of New Mexico. The self-titled debut (due out March 1, 2011, through 429 Records) of John Popper and The Duskray Troubadours to be specific, a side project that’s more like a part-time band, a scrappy, roots-rock extension of Popper’s work in Blues Traveler.

Wanee is less than a week away….don’t miss John Popper and the rest of the 2011 lineup! Online ticket sales end April 11th!
