MrJordanMrTonks is a new collaboration between longtime Athens musicians, Tommy Jordan and William Tonks. With Tommy on acoustic guitar and banjo and William on dobro and electric guitar, a lot of music gets played. Both share the singing and harmony duties to get the job done in a fun and powerful fashion. Good music and lots of great guitar playing with an interesting melding of their personal experiences and styles. more >>>
