About

Handiwork of the “Hillbilly beatnik of the Southern Surreal”.

J.D. Wilkes is an American visual artist, musician, author, filmmaker, and Kentucky Colonel. He is also an avid purveyor of traditional American music and an accomplished musician. But he is perhaps best known as the charismatic frontman for the Legendary Shack Shakers, a band that has been described as a “dynamite group” by author/fan Stephen King, and whose music has been featured on the Grammy-nominated soundtrack for HBO’s TrueBlood. Wilkes is the author of Barn Dances and Jamborees Across Kentucky, an exploration of his state's rich folk music heritage, and the novel The Vine That Ate the South, described by NPR as "Undeniably one of the smartest, most original Southern Gothic novels to come along in years.”
