This is not Christmas music in any sense, but instead is my Christmas gift to all you non-Austinites out there. Redd Volkaert is without a doubt the greatest Telecaster fingerpicker I have ever had the good fortune to see play live many times here in Austin. Redd hails from Canada, but he is now a naturalized Texan, and we’re glad to have him. If you ever swing through Austin, look him up and go see him play at the Continental Club on South Congress (he plays with a group called Heybale on Sunday nights). You will not regret it.
This is real country music. Screw that crap they play on country radio these days!
