THE NATIONAL FIDDLER HALL OF FAME ANNUAL GALA CONCERT IS ON!

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: PLEASE READ! The National Fiddler Hall of Fame induction scheduled for Friday, November 20th has been POSTPONED. With the increase in Covid cases and that affecting travel plans for so many, the decision was made to reschedule the ceremony for sometime in April when more of us can attend, and possibly even Kris can be there in person. Though it is disappointing that Scott will not be inducted this weekend, he (and all of us really) think this is the right decision. So come April 2021 – we will celebrate BIG TIME in PERSON and be there to share in Scott’s success. I can hardly wait! If you have tickets for the Gala, please contact either The Mabee Center or The National Fiddler Hall of Fame for more information on whether the tickets will automatically transfer or if refunds are available – LWR

We have all been waiting for Scott Joss and other 2020 inductees 2020 inductees Shoj Tabuchi/Dale Morris and Don Richwith a host of other talented greats to shine at this famed event.

Scott Joss’ International Fans

Kris’ fans have been avidly following Scott since he wowed and woed audiences worldwide during their tour last year (with the Strangers) through dates and miles that took them from the USA through Europe to Down Under.

Now Kris will be supporting Scott (virtually from Hawaii) and supporting his talented band member and friend during his induction into the National Fiddler Hall of Fame.

Scott Joss is a talented solo artist with several albums and awards of his own. The world class, distinctive fiddler has suported and shared the stage with icons like Dwight Yoakam, Merle Haggard and more. This is Scott’s night, and we only guess at how pleased Kris must be to honour him now. Indeed, he has already featured on Scott’s latest album.

The steller lineup and more details about the event are on the Mabee Website, which says this about Scott:

Scott Joss was often praised as the “heir to the Bakersfield throne” because of his early association with Tiny Moore and Merle Haggard and his later affiliation with Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam. Born in Long Beach and raised in Redding, Joss was a native Californian whose roots ran deep. He learned to play fiddle from Jana Jae, the one-time wife and fiddle player for Buck Owens & His Buckaroos. Befriended by one of Bob Wills’ surviving Playboys, Tiny Moore, Joss was encouraged to develop his talent on a professional level after winning numerous California State Fiddle Championships. In 1980, at the age of 18, he got the call from Haggard. His first show as one of the Strangers was at Carnegie Hall. Still a little green, Joss returned to Redding to continue working on his performance skills before joining up with Merle and the band on the road. While with the Strangers, Joss spent time with Bakersfield guitarman Roy Nichols, who saw great promise in the young fiddle player.

Leaving the road and Merle was a hard decision, but Joss wanted to begin work on a band of his own. After moving to Sacramento, he hooked up with Dennis Barney, another California player from the early days. Barney, who became mentor and friend to the fledgling frontman, showed Joss the ropes and became a member of his band. After playing around California for a while, Joss was spotted by Pete Anderson, who produced, arranged, led the band, and played guitar for Dwight Yoakam. Bringing Joss into the fold in 1988 allowed Anderson to keep an eye on him and his career growth. Commuting between Sacramento and Los Angeles became a way of life for Yoakam’s fiddle player and harmony vocalist. On the road and in the studio, Joss had a full-time job as a member of the Babylonian Cowboys. Still, whenever he was in Sacramento he would pull together Barney, brother-in-law Don Weeks, and some other players and work on his solo venture. Eight years after signing on with Yoakam, Anderson and respected L.A. producer/engineer/bassman Dusty Wakeman (Rosie Flores, Dwight Yoakam, the Lonesome Strangers, Reach Around) took Joss into the all new Mad Dog Studios to start work on his first solo project.

Souvenirs was released in 1996 and hit Gavin’s Americana chart with all the force of a fast moving train, landing at number seven. Top cuts included two Jim Lauderdale songs, “Stay Out of My Arms,” a traditional shuffle, and the anthemic “Doin’ Time in Bakersfield.” Also included was one Joss original, “I Never Got Anywhere With You,” which proved that Scott Joss was indeed a worthy successor to Buck, Merle, and all the rest who created the Bakersfield sound.

Happy Reunion

After the Gig

Last night’s show in Orlando was wonderful. The crowd was amazing and Kris was in fine form as well as the band.. We had a great time and I hope we get to return in not too much time! Heading to Miami now for the night before the big cruise hotel stay…  🙂 Watching the roadside for Alligators.

We were thrilled to hear this news from Scott’s camp.

Scott just informed us that he was recently contacted by Jana Jae (his first fiddle teacher and Buck Owens’ first female Buckaroo!) that he is going to be inducted into the NATIONAL FIDDLER HALL OF FAME on April 18th, 2020, Kris has agreed to perform with him and it will be Scott’s night to shine! We don’t have any other details yet – and will keep everyone updated as we know more. We wanted you all to be one of the first to know.

Kristofferson Morwell 2019

Kris Kristofferson Canberra ticket 2019

Kris Kristofferson performed with Scott Joss, Doug Colosio and Jeff Ingraham at Kernot Hall, Morwell on 24 September as part of their extensive Australia / New Zealand tour.

Venue

Kernot Hall, Morwell.

Australian Tour

The tour has been a great success so far. This night was no different. Australia welcomed Kris and the band with open arms, and they have had a wonderful time, despite the hectic schedule.

Fantastic night, I couldn’t stop smiling. Sadly it couldn’t last forever but it certainly was a night to remember. Kris’s voice was so strong and never wavered and he looked very well.

Patricia Ann

Australian Tour Promo Video

A quick flip through the photographs taken by the band members shows that they have made the most of their time Down Under. Scott Joss enjoys long, scenic walks exploring the area with his wife. Doug Colosio and Jeff Ingraham have been making time to take in some tours. They are all, including Kris, looking surprisingly relaxed – Almost as if they were on vacation.

Morwell Setlist

Gig Pic

Fans have spoken very highly of Scott and Judy Joss – many have never seen any of the band members before this tour. Scott has been doing most of the meeting and greeting. His wife, Judy has been running the busy merchandise stall.

Scott was fantastic very friendly and easy to talk with, as was Judy. I certainly hope that this will not be last time I see of any of them again.

Patricia Ann

We are confident it won’t be, Patricia – Your country has been so very welcoming that I am sure they will want to return.

Scott Joss’ latest album features Kris Kristofferson and has been very well received by fans worldwide.
