Born in Austin, Texas from a Craigslist ad, Whiskey Shivers is made up of musicians from all around the country—Bobby Fitzgerald, Andrew VanVorhees, Joe Deuce, Jeff Hortillosa and James Bookert. The bluegrass band (or “trashgrass,” as they like to call themselves) fills their rich, layered music with heavy themes – work, pain, sin, regret and death.
Whiskey Shivers are now touring the U.S. with rockabilly/blues band The Legendary Shack Shakers. They’ll play the Americana Music Festival Sept. 18, and will release a new album produced by Robert Ellis on Sept. 23.
