WANTED by An Honest Tune: “White male, squirrelly hair, known to make strange mouth noises, last seen with the bluegrass Bonnie and Clyde. He is known to make even the whitest man dance; approach at your own will. ”

Keller and the Keels are still on the Lam….

They’ve run through the woods,

and shortly thereafter, David Shehi and  Josh Mintz from an Honest Tune caught up to them to steal some time to talk about Thief:

Here’s part of the interview explaining how Keller and the Keels met:

Honest Tune: (To Keller) You have a new record out with Larry and Jenny Keel. Would you mind giving a brief introduction to The Keels – how you guys came together, and how the whole creative process has grown to the force that it is now?

Keller Williams: We have now known each other for years and this is our second record together withthe last one being Grass in 2006. I met the Keels back in the early ’90s in a bar in my hometown of Fredricksburg, Virginia, and Larry was playing with a group called Fizzawah,  which was a side project to Mcgraw Gap, which is another amazing bluegrass band. I was a fan of that group andgot to open for them and play with them some.

Then Larry and I just kept in touch over the years. Larry and Jenny are just real. Collaborating with them is just so natural. They bring an authenticity to my world, as far as the bluegrassthing goes. They are so authentically steeped in the bluegrass world andin all honesty, I am simply appreciative that they have sunk to my level.  (Laughs)

Honest Tune: (To Larry) Andwhat was your original impression of Keller?

Larry Keel: Well, Ihad been hearing about him and my recollection of the meeting is entirely the same. Everything that I had ever heard about him was how hard of a worker he was, particularly in the Virginia area. Then I met him and I was like, “I like what this guy has got going on.” It is totally unique, and it is his ownthing, which is something that I have always tried to do in terms of having my ownsound.

Since then, my respect has remained in the utmost of ways. He has stayed on his own path, doing his own thing steadfastly. Then there is the simple fact that he is just a good guy who has become one of our very best friends.
