Derek and Andrew, the group’s two dueling guitarists, always strive to deliver fiery flat picking and mesmerizing finger-style Travis Picking at every performance while the “The Real” John Stewart keeps it rock steady on the upright bass. In addition to these stapled instruments, Derek also plays some fine harmonica and Andrew plays some Merle Watson style slide guitar. Their live shows are packed full of your favorite Doc and Merle Watson tunes, but the group also takes the music a step further by composing original songs and instrumentals inspired by the great repertoire of The Watson Family. Streamline Cannonball performances have been known to shufflin’ them cards, have you sittin’ on top of the world, take you to the gallows of a pallet on the floor and leave you drinkin’ whiskey for breakfast.

 

So get on board! It's a long steel rail and a short cross tie...The Streamline Cannonball.
