Chuck Dunlap & The High Desert Riders will join the FarmJam fun this Labor Day Weekend. Dunlap is a singer/songwriter originally from Oklahoma and relocated to the Pacific Northwest in 1980. Dunlap spent time on “The Farm” in Stillwater, Oklahoma, and was friends with the Red Dirt Rangers. In other words, Chuck Dunlap was on the ground floor of the acoustic singer-songwriter genre that would be later pegged Red Dirt.
Dunlap is an award winning artist. He was the prize winner at Woody Guthrie Songwriting Competition and his song “My Baby” was used by TNT network in show “Saving Grace.” He contributes his expertise in defining the gap between country, blues, folk, zydeco and rock all influenced by his travels from New Orleans to Alaska.
