Episode 18: Kenny Roby

Kenny Roby first met Neal back in 1997, when Kenny’s Raleigh, NC based band, 6 String Drag, signed to Steve Earle’s E-Squared record label and made their classic album High Hat. Neal and Kenny became great pals and Neal invited Kenny along to open a month of shows on his 1998 tour of the UK and France. They sang together every night and when the tour ended they came back to the states and recorded their duo album Kenny Roby & Neal Casal: Black River Sides. They stayed friends until Neal’s passing in 2019 and Kenny recorded a fantastic version of Neal’s song “Too Much To Ask” for the Highway Butterfly: The Songs of Neal Casal tribute album.
