 In the rock’n’roll era, the vast spaces of west Texas have been filled with great music.

Joe Ely stands in a tradition born out on these gritty plains.

George McConnell is an American guitarist from Vicksburg, Mississippi who played for Widespread Panic, Kudzu Kings, and Beanland. McConnell co-founded Beanland in Oxford, Mississippi in 1985 with guitarist Bill McCrory and toured extensively, mainly around the south and southwest, playing blues-oriented rock as part of the nascent early-90’s jamband renaissance. In 2002, following Widespread Panic guitarist Michael Houser’s diagnosis of pancreatic cancer, McConnell and saxophone player Randall Bramblett were asked to accompany Widespread Panic on the band’s summer tour. McConnell was named as the new lead guitarist in the band following Houser’s death…

Her career began with a band called “The Lunsfords,” headed by her father, Jim Lunsford, and two of her sisters, Nancy and Teresa Lunsford. Born in Asheville, NC.
