Mule Town Records Presents: An Evening With J.D. Wilkes
September 7, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:45 pm
J.D. Wilkes is an American visual artist, musician, author, filmmaker, and Kentucky Colonel. He has recorded harmonica for Merle Haggard, Sturgill Simpson, John Carter Cash, Hank Williams III and his own group Legendary Shack Shakers, whose music was featured on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack for HBO’s TrueBlood. Wilkes is the author of Barn Dances and Jamborees Across Kentucky, an exploration of his state’s rich folk music heritage, and the novel The Vine That Ate the South, described by NPR as “Undeniably one of the smartest, most original Southern Gothic novels to come along in years.”
He graduated from Murray State University with a Bachelor’s degree in 1995. He has created sideshow banners for traveling acts such as Marty Stuart, BR549 and the John Strong Sideshow. His comics and paintings have been published in Juxtapoz, ALARM Magazine, the Nashville Metromix and alongside the art of Robert Crumb in Mineshaft comics.
