Pee Wee Moore and the Awful Dreadful Snakes

When: Fri., Sept. 9 2011

Pee Wee Moore is the quintessential country outlaw. He grew up picking a guitar and songwriting in a small Georgia town, close to Chattanooga, Tenn. After mastering his craft, he moved to the heartland of outlaw country — Austin, Texas. But judging by his raw sound, he couldn’t ditch those small-town roots if he tried. His voice has a twang that only true honky-tonkers can pull off, which got him far in Austin. He released his first and only album, The Leaving Side of Gone, in 2009 which he co-produced with acclaimed recording engineer Jeff Coppage. He has since played with many notable outlaws such as Kris Kristofferson and Shooter Jennings. What began as a solo career evolved into a trio with the addition of drummer Troy Tabner and electric bassist Brandon Beran. With songs like “Moonshine Runner” and “Cotton Picking Woman,” Pee Wee Moore and the Awful Dreadful Snakes could capture the heart of even the slickest city-dweller.
