Kevin Welch has charted five singles and released eight studio albums including his most commercially successful self titled release (1990), which alone charted four singles on its own. Several legendary singers such as Ricky Skaggs, Waylon Jennings, Garth Brooks, Patty Loveless and Don Williams have used his material. A longtime Nashville resident, Welch moved to Wimberley, Texas six years ago and he recorded his latest collection, A Patch of Blue Sky, in 2009. Welch cofounded Dead Reckoning Records with fellow songwriters Kieran Kane, Tammy Rogers, Mike Henderson and Harry Stinson.
Dustin Welch relocated from Nashville to Austin and released his debut album Whisky Priest in 2009, titled after the main character in Graham Greene’s consummate novel, The Power and the Glory. He followed with Tijuana Bible (2013). Welch plays and tours on his own as well as with his father Kevin. Welch also holds a weekly songwriting and guitar workshop in San Marcos, Texas, for armed forces veterans. Catfish Concerts is happy and proud to feature one of Texas’ most talented father and son combinations on December 7!
“The cool thing about Catfish Concerts is that it really has the feel of when I was a kid in South Austin, except you guys are way too calm and take it way to seriously.” – John Townes Van Zandt II
“Catfish Concerts is among the most intimate, friendly, inspired and inspirational house concerts in the country and most likely the world. It’s like hanging out with your favorite folks in a treehouse built by your favorite uncle, the one who paints and write poems all day. I’ll tell you what I think Catfish is: a genuine piece of heaven that you can touch with your hands while you drink good local beer and listen to great songs. Thank you, Jenni and Brian, for creating such a space and event.” – Walt Wilkins
