Truckstop Honeymoon
In eleven years Truckstop Honeymoon have released eight CDs and a full length documentary film on Baton Rouge label, Squirrel Records. They perform at International folk festivals, rock clubs, neighborhood bars, house concerts and hay barns from Nebraska to Tasmania.

Truckstop Honeymoon’s story begins in New Orleans, where Katie played wash-tub bass and blues piano in the streets of the French Quarter. There she met Mike, who slung a banjo and sold his CDs to tourists as a curative for hangovers and small mindedness. After a court house wedding, they hit the road together. They spent their wedding night in a trucks stop somewhere between Lafayette and the Atchafalaya Swamp. There Truckstop Honeymoon was born.
Eddy Green
Eddy Green
Eddy fell in love with music while digging through his mother’s records as a child. It is still uncertain whether it was the album art or the ritual of pulling the record out and reading the liner notes while listening to the music that set this course. Either way, the end result has been performing, recording and songwriting throughout his adult life. His music resembles a melting pot of Bluegrass, Country, Blues and Soul that ends up in the song camp of even a little Rock n’ Roll.

Through years of meeting brilliant and talented beats and artists of all ilk, music has been part of his journey. Pulling from an eclectic mix of influences such as Taj Mahal, Ry Cooder, Little Feat, Bill Monroe, Gordon Lightfoot, Bob Dylan, Norman Blake and Darrell Scott, Eddy’s music fuses a unique brand of songwriting/playing that is uniquely his own. Growing up in Southeastern Kentucky created a unique cultural experience from which to learn and draw inspiration. Currently living and playing in Manhattan, Kansas is broadening his horizons musically, culturally and as a songwriter.

Eddy has played, recorded and toured with many bands over the years from speak-easies to festival stages all over the country and on a few occasions internationally. Groups have included The Betweeners, Boxwine Prophets, Soapbox, Mitch Barrett and recently a debut solo record made in Lawrence, Kansas. In some combination he has opened for such performers as Leon Russell, Old Crow Medicine Show, Alejandro Escovedo, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Tim O’Brian, Robert Lockwood Jr, and many others.

His partner Heather Branham-Green is a thespian, writing, directing, acting and stage managing theatre. She managed all this while corralling and keeping Eddy on track. She is the proverbial “rug” in this Dude’s existence.
