MAY ARTIST OF THE MONTH
WHO IS TURTLE GOODWATER?
Born and raised in a small Indiana town, where watching the corn grow was about the most exciting thing to do, I started playing bass guitar when I was about 13. Being in an area where bluegrass music was rooted I quickly took to guitar and mandolin then soon after was playing the banjo. After dropping out of school at the beginning of my sophomore year and with nothing but trouble to get into, I left home hitchhiking and in my travels around the country came through Humboldt and have since called it my home. Playing in many bands in Humboldt County over the years including genre’s of Rock’n Roll, Psychedelic Jam bands, 1920’s-30s Ragtime blues to Bluegrass and Country. My current projects include Barn Fire, a hard driving classic and original Honkytonk country group as well as Rinky Dink String Band and The Powers Creek Ramblers, which are both Bluegrass Americana groups. Growing up in a family of musicians and in an area steeped in bluegrass history, music has always been a large part of my life.
