Rip Carson is what you would call a prodigy; he can play any instrument he puts his hands on.  Rip has been playing rockabilly since the age of 13 and has headlined concerts, festivals, and clubs world-wide in addition to releasing several albums.  After a break from the road, having a child, and spending lots of hours practicing and writing songs, Carson is back with a new band, some new guitars (the old ones got smashed), and a cache of songs that will have you out of your seat swinging and singing along!
