JARED JAMS WITH GOVERNOR KAINE
Whiskey Rebellion mandolinist Jared Pool was playing with a group of musicians up in Fredericksburg, VA a couple weeks back. And former Gov Tim Kaine sat in with the band. This is not the first time this year Jared has been on stage with a person of such stature. Early in the year while on a trip to NY with The Woodsheaders, Lauren Ambrose sat in with the band. She is best known as the red-headed girl from 6 Feet Under and Can't Hardly Wait. Yep, that one! Add in Cory Feldman, Danny Knicely, and Robert Duval, and you have a nice list of celebrity encounters over the past 2 years.
