NOTES
Having spent almost 7 years under the Nashville spell in the years of transition from the Country Music tradition of story telling through lyric to the current trend of songwriting by committee, Mike and Maggie McKinney returned to their Florida roots disillusioned with music.

Michael McKinney became a well-respected author with a starred review in Publishers Weekly and accolades across the country for his first novel, 'A Thousand Bridges.'

But the love for songwriting still haunted them. Through a magical moment of clarity at the Kerrville Folk Festival in the Nineties, the realization struck them that Nashville had become the "Business of Music," not the music itself. That's when Maggie and Mike became Lucky Mud. Their reformation became their musical salvation. The love of a beautifully written lyric paired with a melody that fits the words so seamlessly that they cannot be separated without mournful loss. The ability to reach out and touch an audience with a voice that comforts or stings. A voice that amuses or inspires.

Words have power and a great melody enhances that power. That's "Mud Music." Their love of a great song has taken them on journeys throughout the world.

Their original music has taken them from the Legendary Linenhall in Castlebar, Ireland, to Campbell's Pub on the wild coast of County Mayo in the West and throughout Connemara. From the island of Sark, in the Tidy Bowl blue English Channel, to the bridge-bound streets of Newcastle Upon Tyne in Northern England and Bandera, Texas, (yes, it is another country) to the beautiful hills of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in Canada. Lucky Mud has shared their Florida swamp roots 'Mud born' music.

Lucky Mud has opened for and shared stages with both the infamous and famous musicians currently touring today. From the legendary songwriter Eric Taylor to the irreverent Grant Peeples. From the mesmerizing talents of California folk-duo Paul Kamm and Eleanore MacDonald to the sultry-voiced Sally Spring. Too many incredible voices singing out in the wilderness of satellite radio channels and independent music sources to name, but all equally blessed with the true gift of storytelling. Too honest for Nashville. Too gifted to compromise by writing songs-by-committee. The music, and nothing but the music, matters.
