Michael Jackman

(guitar, ukulele, dobro, vocals) has studied piano, clarinet, flute, and music composition, but his first love was guitar, especially the 1970s Guild D35 acoustic he has been playing since he was a teenager. He performed in small venues in and around New York and kicked around Nashville’s music scene for a while before moving to Louisville. He loves playing with Molly’s Mutts!


(stand-up bass) has been a publisher and editor for over 30 years. These days, semi-retired, he also enjoys making pots and playing music with friends.

Enjoy the music!

Molly’s Mutts jams to “Roly-Poly” by Bob Wills. Michael swings on lead and vocals.

Molly’s Mutts plays a traditional tune, “Cold Frosty Morn.” Brrrr. You can feel the cold air in the tune. Molly’s featured on dulcimer and vocals.

We have so much fun whenever we play Mel Tillis’ “I Ain’t Never.” Molly & Michael blend their harmonies and Michael picks rockabilly.
