New Music: “Big Edna”

Happy New Year!

So, I’ve taken on another musical side-project.  Actually, this one’s been in the works for over a year.  After several lineup changes, I’m proud to introduce BIG EDNA.

And yes, that is a real license plate.  How badass is that?

Big Enda is:

  • Greg Young: Bass, lead vocals
  • Eddie Harrington: Guitar
  • Mike Porter: Drums, backing vocals
  • Lenny Broiles: Fiddle, mandolin, effects, vocals.

I’m really excited about this project. We’re playing a mix of original and cover tunes. Our song list includes songs by artists like The Band, Sublime, Wayne Shorter, The Clash, Led Zeppelin, Santana, Bruce Cockburn, Warren Zevon, Bob Marley, Depeche Mode, and so many others.  I love how eclectic we’ve become.

Greg is a classically trained bassist (Berkeley School of Music). Lenny has been playing fiddle in several bluegrass and traditional Irish bands for years, and Eddie (the young dude) is a great emerging guitar talent. He’s fresh out of high school and already killing it.  Being able to play in a group with this much talent is always a pleasure.
