There have been many super groups throughout the annals of music
history, but none have put together such a clever name before.
Combining the eclectic style of The Mekons with the cool country tones
of Freakwater, this is a wonderful rare opportunity to see Chicago’s
alternative music royalty come together for a rare performance.
The Chivalrous Mekons (Will Oldham, Emmett Kelly, Angle Olson, Danny Kiely, Ben Boye, Van Campbell) playing Appalshop benefit in Lexington, KY 2012-07-07
Besides his own songs Will Oldham did a few Mekons cover versions as the Chivalrous Mekons
Go to Youtube for his own Bonnie Prince Billy compositions too: I see a darkness and others
While Jon has a new one with the Waco Brothers, Lu and Steve havn’t been lazy:
For quite a while Steve Goulding has been drumming with New York City folksinger Megan Reilly. She has a new cd out called ‘the well’. The new cd is quite a step for Megan, so please give it a listen.
