Streamline Cannonball is a Doc and Merle Watson Tribute band and beyond formed by Andrew DeCarlo, Derek Blake and John Stewart, three amazing musical artists based in Fort Collins CO. For years the music of Doc and Merle Watson has touched the hearts and minds of these salty dogs, and they have embarked on a quest to carry on the songs, stylings, and stories of The Watson Family.
Derek and Andrew, the groups two dueling guitaritsts, always strive to deliver fiery flat picking and mesmorising finger style travis picking at every performance while The Real John Stewart keeps it rock steady on the upright bass. In addition to these stapled insturments, Derek also plays some fine harmonica and Andrew plays some Merle Watson style silde guitar. Their live show are packed full of your favorite Doc and Merle tunes, but the group also takes the music a step further by composing and performing original songs and instrumentals inspired by the great repetoire of The Watson Family. Streamline Cannonballl performances have been know to shuffle them cards, have you sitting on top of the world, take you to the gallows of a palate on the floor and leave you drnking whiskey for breakfast!
So get on board! it's a long steel rail and a short cross tie...The Streamline Cannonball.
