The Dirt Daubers are composed of Colonel J.D. Wilkes (songwriter and front man for the Legendary Shack Shakers), his wife Jessica, and another Shack Shaker, Mark Robertson. J.D. is also the creator of a critically acclaimed southern-music documentary film, Seven signs, and the band have appeared in the USA on radio programmes as the Red Barn Radio Show, the Blue Plate Special, and Music City Roots on WSM-AM, 'The Air Castle of the South'.
