Special Ed Ferguson
A native of Shreveport and Houston home-towner, Special Ed Ferguson has a long history of guitar slinging starting with a popular Houston blues band, Eastex Freeway. Relocating to the Texas Hill Country, Special Ed has played with such famous Austin bands as I-Tex and the Mau Mau Chaplains.
As well as an excellent guitar player and instructor, Special Ed has demonstrated a long time command of the sound and studeo worlds as demonstrated on the about to be released Stop The Truck Band tribute to the song writing legend, Freddy Powers.
When he is not busy mixing and producing at Hills Parlor, Ed has a full time music instruction career. He has sat in and pinch hit for the truck since it's formation in the early ninetys. Ed has been a full timer for a few years now, breaking in his style before thousands of European and American country music enthusiasts.
The current lineup of Stop the Truck and the Mau-Mau Chaplains are some of my oldest friends and cohorts. Playing with them for many years makes these bands comfortable terrain to trod. See you at the show.
