Chicagoan Francesca Folinazzo (Frank) founded Roots Music Rambler as a music and travel blog in a pre-pandemic world. COVID killed events and travel plus her desire to play her banjo. Falls texted her in 2023 and said, 'Let's bring it back as a podcast!' He was raised on John Prine, babysat on Waylon Jennings and taught to drink and cuss the proper, mountain way. He hails from Pikeville, Ky., the birthplace of Dwight Yoakum, whose annual festival is Hillbilly Days.

Rich Oeffinger Talks About Digby’s Musical Hiatus (Highlights)

On the latest episode of Roots Music Rambler, Jason Falls sits in with three members of Digby to talk about their first album in 17 years. It’s called Happy Little Heartache and drops on March 1.

The band last played live in 2013, but never really broke up. Their long layoff was largely due to one member’s burnout. That member, lead guitarist Rich Oeffinger, talked about how they came back to playing and recording again.

The Real Story Behind John Shiner Joining Digby #digby #digbymusic #digbyband #johnshiner #comeback

On the latest episode of Roots Music Rambler, Jason Falls sits in with three members of Digby to talk about their first album in 17 years. It’s called Happy Little Heartache and drops on March 1.

Falls asked Ben Schneider how fellow bandmate John Shiner came to the group. Shiner played fiddle, which was unusual for a pop band back in the late 1990s and still is today, though he primarily plays keyboards now.
