Try to imagine if Garrison Keillor’s early influences were Ozarks and Pentecostal instead of Minnesota and Lutheran… That’s what you’ll find on Tall Tales & Blue Grass, the debut CD from Mitch Luckett, author of To Kill a Common Loon. In song and story Mitch answers such questions as “what could wipe the smile off a dead man’s face?”, “is it possible to find true love on the road to Wieser?” and “what is Mitch’s signature doing on his very own birth certificate?”
Played on folk stations from Bozeman to Scranton and points in between!
Also featured on the CD are the banjo and harmonica tunes that form the backdrop of his novel.

“sheesh…. Who *is* this guy Mitch Luckett…?”
