A quote from The Strawberry Music Festival: “Stevie Coyle and Glenn Houston make up the dynamic guitar duo, The Quitters. Having each quit some of the best bands in the business, both are late founding members of The Waybacks and each have performed at Strawberry in other configurations. Stevie Coyle has a long and illustrious career as an entertainer that began well before birth and Glenn Houston’s well decorated history in music is best known to berry heads for his founding role of powerhouse Americana quintet, Houston Jones. As individuals, both are renowned players in music circles. Now they have joined forces, to the delight of California audiences, to become a right-handed, right-side up fingerpicking and left-handed upside down flatpicking twosome. Mostly acoustic. Some electric. Much serendipity.”
Bass player Chris Kee is a classically trained cellist who studied ethnomusicology at Yale. A conscript of long standing in Peter Rowan’s Free Mexican Air Force, playing major festivals and concert venues with Peter, he was the original bass player with the Waybacks, bassist and principal songwriter for Americana powerhouse Houston Jones, and multi-instrumentalist and composer with the alt-Americana trio Springhouse. Much in demand as a hired gun, he has performed with Buddy Miller (including appearances with Buddy, Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, and Shawn Colvin), Jim Lauderdale, Norah Jones, Jim Campilongo, the late lamented Ralph Carney, and crypto- Klezmer sorceress Michelle Alany, among many others.
