“Redd Volkaert is arguably the best guitarist in a town overflowing with them.” – Austin Chronicle, Jim Caligiuri
Lead guitarist for the famous Heybale! band and former member of Merle Haggard’s backing band, Redd Volkaertis a blazing, Tele-slinging, guitar virtuoso. He’s also played with George Jones, Ray Price, Commander Cody, and many other legends. Considered among the top guitar players in the country, Volkaert won a 2009 Grammy for Best Country Instrumental Performance. Other honors include being inducted into the British Columbia Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame (2016), and the Austin Music Hall of Fame Inductee & Best Guitarist (2015).
