BIOGRAPHY

JD Wilkes is an American musician, visual artist, author,
filmmaker and self-proclaimed "southern surrealist". He is
an accomplished multi-instrumentalist (notably on harmonica
and banjo), having recorded with such artists as Merle Haggard,
John Carter Cash, Mike Patton, and Hank Williams III. He’s toured
with Charlie Parr and The Tillers, as well as performing at the 2015
Winnipeg Folk Festival.

Wilkes is perhaps best known as the founder of the Legendary
Shack Shakers, a Southern Gothic rock and blues band formed in
the mid 90s.

JD Wilkes has been compared to iconoclasts like David Byrne,
Iggy Pop, or Jerry Lee Lewis, and with his small, wiry frame and
intense, incandescent performances, it’s not hard to see why.
But while he plays the carnival barker onstage, he’s a dedicated
lifelong student of true Southern culture. Master banjo player
Dom Flemons said, “JD is a real old-Kentucky banjo player and he
can take that to the bank! I gotta watch out next time I see his banjo.”
A resident of Paducah, Kentucky, Wilkes is a Kentucky Colonel, an
honorable title bestowed by the state's Governor upon those with a
connection to, or who are famous residents of the state of Kentucky.
In 2015, Wilkes was featured on the BBC original series Songs of the
South, 
in an episode focusing on the musical history of Tennessee
and Kentucky.
