This Train…on time!

VIA PAYPAL  - $15 + $2 shipping

A mixture of original material, traditional songs from the public domain, ageless gospel standards, and western-swing classics like “New Panhandle Rag.” This Train received an enthusiastic review from Sing Out! Magazine and gets consistent airplay on Asheville–based public radio station WCQS FM. It’s a southern boy’s homage to his multi-faceted roots...a little bit of honky-tonk, a little bit of church, and a lot of lonesome.

Vollie plays guitar, piano, fiddle, bass and harmonica. His sweet yet soulful singing style hark back to the roots music of his Asheville, NC home. Vollie is a gifted performer, teacher, and band member who brings great energy to his shows.

Vollie McKenzie is probably the sweetest singer I know. He’s been singing all his life and it shows in his easy command of both the church music he grew up with and the jazzy swing that he knows so well. He is also a fine old time musician on guitar and bass. I’ve heard him play some pretty good fiddle too. There’s no one I enjoy playing with or listening to more.
–John Herrmann, Musician and Producer
