Kenny Vaughan, Dave Roe and Jeffrey Clemens on The Sit Down!


Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart, The Byrds tour), Dave Roe (Dan Auerbach, Pretenders) and Jeffrey Clemens (G Love and Special Sauce) are some of the coolest cats in Nashville. Between them, they’ve played with just about everybody, on stage or in the studio. 

Most recently, Kenny’s been on the road with Roger McGuinn, Chris Hillman and Marty Stuart as part of the Byrds’ Sweetheart Of The Rodeo 50th Anniversary tour.

When they’re off the road, they get together to play in a powerful trio, trading riffs and taking turns singing classic blues and original tunes.


Tune in to The Sit Down with Gina Frary Bacon on WFMU’s Rock ‘n’ Soul Ichiban on Friday, January 11th at 9pm (8c) to hear a great live set with this amazing trio.
