Jim White vs The Packway Handle Band

Jim White vs The Packway Handle Band Provided By The Artist
Southern Singer-songwriter Jim White vs The Packway Handle Band

Jim White, the Southern born film-maker turned singer-songwriter turned novelist, has a new album. Or at least half of one. Jim now lives in Athens, Georgia and became friends with a long-time local bluegrass group The Packway Handle Band. When they asked him to produce their album he said yes but only if he could join the band and have them do some of his tunes. That is where the title of this project, Jim White vs The Packway Handle Band comes from. The musical results are pretty good and the witty White is always fun to engage in conversation.
