Shooter Jennings describes the band as “Unlike anything I’ve ever heard.” and Dean Ween adds “Ryan Clackner is the best guitarist I have ever seen, and that’s saying a lot.”
Most recently, Stump Tail Dolly left a lasting impression on the Chicago-based Moonrunners Music Festival. “If you haven’t heard Stump Tail Dolly yet, are you afraid of something? Because you should be. They bring a full range of country-tinged metal to the stage, fueled by blistering fiddle licks, vocals, and stage presence from Lucy Cochran and the monster-sized guitar skills of Ryan Clackner. New Band of the Year?”
Fans of Outlaw Country, Frank Zappa, Bluegrass, Primus, Fantomas and early Mastodon will be happily blown to shreds by this band melded by Clackner’s renowned guitar presence and Cochran’s award-winning contest fiddle chops.
