Yes, Kinky has been resurrected, with perhaps his greatest work ever, the cd Resurrection (Echo Hill Records), and he’s bringing it to the streets for a November 2019 tour. In working with superstar producer, multi-instrumentalist and three-time Grammy winner Larry Campbell, Kinky has finally found the perfect compliment to his jagged edge Texas Hill Country persona. Together with fellow three-time Grammy winning engineer Justin Guip, they have produced eleven amazing cuts that speak to the legends and myths of the great southwest with an inner conviction that belies the raucous days of Kinky’s youth. Every appearance on the Merry Kinkster Tour will be a showcase of these masterpieces from a very deep soul.


KINKY FRIEDMAN

In working with superstar producer, multi-instrumentalist, and 3-time Grammy winner Larry Campbell, Kinky Friedman has finally found the perfect compliment to his jagged edge Texas Hill Country persona. Together with fellow 3-time Grammy winning engineer Justin Guip, they have produced perhaps the crowning achievement of the Kinkster’s career, Resurrection(Echo Hill Records, 2019).

With eleven new tunes, four of which were co-written by up-and-comer Doc Elliot, and a special guest appearance by long-time Kinky pal and co-conspirator Willie Nelson on the title track. Kinky puts to bed any notion that he is not a first-rate songwriter of the highest order.

Every tune is tailor made for Americana radio; every song a masterpiece of deep reflection and an oven deeper soul. No longer the reckless comic gadfly of his youth, Kinky has found the pathway to the truth that haunts his inner being. Each and every story will continue to haunt listeners and fans long past Kink/s time with us on this planet.

Like his fellow Texas-born songwriters and good pals Billy Joe Shaver and Kris Kristofferson, Kinky speaks to the legends and the myths of the great southwest, but always with an eye to the longings, needs.and hopes of the modern world. His lyrics are universal, yet his vision is completely personal, unique to a man who has led the most special of lives.

Kinky’s more soulful music has always been the favorite of the equally soulful, including such luminaries as Nelson Mandela, Joseph Heller, and Bob Dylan. Resurrection will cement Kinky’s place in musical history as one of the all-time greats, with one of the all-time deepest souls to ever pick up a guitar.


BRIAN MOLNAR

For over a decade Brian Molnar has been carrying his acoustic guitar and wrought melodies across the United States and Europe, connecting audiences with a feeling of American tradition and unique thoughtfulness that has been too often diluted in recent memory. Now, with a new album of traditional songs, Old Paint, and sharing the stage with contemporaries such as Ralph Stanley, Chris Hillman, Bernie Worrell, Garth Hudson, Neal Cassal, and Kinky Friedman, it seems that a genuine Americana resurgence is upon us, with each of Brian’s new releases setting its tone.

Brian is credited with the production of Kinky Friedman’s last two albums, The Loneliest Man I Ever Met (2015) and The Circus of Life(2018). The artist’s first two albums since the 1970s, they are both critically acclaimed and loved by fans. Over the past few years, Brian and Kinky have toured the country as well as overseas, selling out venues coast to coast.
