The personality known as Unknown Hinson
is portrayed by Stuart Danny Baker, a hell of a guitarist from North
Carolina who invented the tongue-in-cheek character so he could rip on

“I Ain’t Afraid of Your Husband” and “I Cleaned Out a Room (In My

For all intents and purposes, the band
Drive-By Truckers could also be called “Changing Lineup.” Over the

Sarah Lee Guthrie did not begin to
take music seriously until she met her now-husband, Irion, whose own
lineage includes literary giant John Steinbeck, his great uncle. The duo
has been touring and recording music since 1999.
Les Claypool is primarily known for

other artists in a wide array of genres.
Blues/Rock/Soul ensemble Tedeschi Trucks Band, fresh off of their chart-busting album release, Made Up Mind, headlines the inaugural Ohio River Throwdown, alongside Los Lobos, JJ Grey & Mofro, JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound and many other American Roots music all-stars.
Jennings’ latest album is called The Other Life
and it may be his best work to date. It contains real Country songs
like “Wild and Lonesome,” featuring the harmony vocals of Patty Griffin,
and harder-rocking tunes like “A Hard Lesson to Learn.”
