Paul Griffith was one of the most popular characters in A Train when he was a Shreveporter (and grad of Centenary). Like David Egan, he moved to Nashville. Alas, Griffith stayed in Music City and became a popular journeyman percussionist. He writes of his rare visit to Shreveport, "I'm gonna miss Buddy's benefit--ironically I'm playing a crawfish festival here in Nashville. John Howe tells me there'll be other opportunities. I've been checking in regularly--seems like Bud's turned a corner and is showing some improvement."
Griffith is backing perennial Nashville favorite Kevin Gordon, a bluesman and roots rocker. Jayne Lanza, who worships Monsieur Gordon, says the singer recently returned from performing in Europe.
