Catfish to Record All-Instrumental Guitar Album for Summer Release
Catfish Keith will take his pile of Nationals and make an album of all guitar instrumentals. Look for lots of blues, slide pieces, rags and sooky jumps on Baritone, Radiotone and Delphi National Reso-Phonic Guitars, and some suprises too.
NAMM Show a Success!
Catfish & Penny had a blast at the NAMM Show in Los Angeles this year, and Catfish performed for National Reso-Phonic Guitars, Highlander Pickups and John Pearse Strings. The All-Star Corner at the National and Highlander booths included Catfish and Bob Brozman playing prototype 12-string Nationals, and the world's first Baritone National guitar duets. Catfish also played with the great Woody Mann, John Sebastian and Peter Madcat Ruth. Martin Simpson and Lawrence Juber also picked up a storm, and reunions with Cephas & Wiggins, Tom Ball & Kenny Sultan, Doug MacLeod and Happy & Jane Traum made for a fun weekend.
Very special thanks to our family of endorsers: Marie and McGregor Gaines, Don and Hilary Young of National, Bob and Holly Wolstein of Highlander, and Michelle Albeck, Mary Faith, John and Linda Pearse of John Pearse Strings.
