Mother Merey & the Black Dirt
A dust colored, rickety and road-worn minivan pulls up in the lane next to you. You don't really think twice until a sharp rev of the engine erupts in a cloud of smoke and rust that slowly rises from the battered windstar. The lights are on, windows tinted. The light turns green and the next thing you know the minivan is burning rubber on its way to sixty in five seconds flat, throwing rocks from the road and leaving two dark plumes of burnt rubber in its wake. Where is it going? Its headed Down To The River where you'll find:
Mother Merey Kimbrough(washboard/vocals)
Eric Witthans (dobro/vocals)
Kevin Allen (harp/vocals)
Blending a mix of folk and country blues. Mother Merey and the Black Dirt are currently playin around town and working on getting their debut album out (due April 2013).

The group had performed successfully throughout the Midwest, even landing a song on the MTV show Skins” before taking a short hiatus. At the beginning of 2012, the group reformed in Austin, TX with a new lineup, new energy, and a new passion for their music.
