Q

Mr. Mosley, What will you be feasting upon this Thanksgiving Day? As a man who travels constantly, I am curious to know if you have culled any select recipes from your favorite culinary destinations.

A

Was in New Orleans with a dear friend...a prominent chef from the French Quarter. Yummmmm! Cornbread stuffing and gravy defines Thanksgiving dinner for me. I'm not to good with recipes...I wing it.

Q

Will you ever cut your hair?


Bret Mosley responded on 10/31/2011
A

Knowing me, if some big change or emotional event goes down, I'll pierce or shave or ink something. I'd like to do a mohawk one day.

Q

How many Dobro's do you own and do you have a favorite?


Bret Mosley responded on 10/31/2011
A

! have two...my first one is a '65 pre-Gibson round neck that I modified to play on my lap...to the detriment of the guitar. It's now being restored to be played regularly. I got it in Austin 10 years ago at SXSW. Then I got an incredible deal on a Regal square neck last year in Jackson, MS. I can't continue to beat up the old one the way I did...I guess that makes it the favorite.

Q

When will you bring your unique style of music to the Caribbean (hint, hint)?


Bret Mosley responded on 10/31/2011
A

Can't wait! As soon as possible!!! I'm thinking St. Thomas for starters...

Q

Do you prefer to perform in a group or alone? If in a group, who do you love to play with?

Solo is most familiar & probably what I'm best at right now. But I love getting the chance to be onstage with others, and I'd like to do more of that going forward. Danielle Howle got up w/me in Charleston recently...changed my life. At the Blackswoods Music Festival last month, Kenny Liner & I debuted our duo project. Got to sit in with Mookie Siegel & Chris Jacobs, and The Jackmormons, too...an absolute joy & a privilege.
For my next Rockies tour (Jan. '12), I'll be joined by an extraordinary drummer - Zechariah Lloyd Tillotson from Oxford, MS. There have been times onstage with him when I was crying tears of joy song after song. He's incomparable in terms of the passion & musicality he brings to what I do.
Then there's my first drummer, Craig Santiago - in Woodstock. We hope to work together again soon. He's a genius, a master & utterly unique in his style & groove.
I also love playing with drummer Brad Gunyon in Brooklyn. He is so exciting & punctuates things in a spectacular way.
