    Fish Tail Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary!

    Way back in 1991, Fish Tail Pres. Penny Cahill started the label with Catfish's second album, the first Fish Tail CD, "Pepper In My Shoe!" We're still here, feisty as ever, and continue our faith in this music.  Fish Tail has released six of Keith's acclaimed solo CDs, gotten Number One airplay on radio stations all over the world, built a mighty mailing list of over 10,000 fans, and have been nominated for two W.C. Handy Awards for BEST ACOUSTIC BLUES ALBUM.

    Look for a new Catfish Keith solo release for 2002, and please do drop us a line,  email anytime.

    New Review of Homespun Video from Guitar Player Magazine!

    Full Review from April, 2001 Issue of Guitar Player

    Catfish on "American Blues Festival" Tour in UK & Europe in 2002.

    Catfish Keith is booked for his first-ever "package tour," performing in over 30 theatre venues throughout the UK as part of the "American Blues Festival Tour," which will start February 1st, through early March 2002. The tour features four American blues acts, and continues a tradition started in 1961 when Lippman & Rowe started "The American Folk Festival of the Blues." The tour will play in large theatres in the UK and will possibly resume in continental Europe later in 2002.

    New Solo Album in the works.

    Back in the studio again, Catfish Keith is now working on a new solo CD, this time an album of all-original songs, full of acoustic and reso-phonic guitars, singing, sliding, stomping and some back-up bass and drums to boot.  Look for cuts on the amazing new gold Tricone 12-string National, and other suprises.
