G Burns Jug Band Wins "Best Local Recording" at San Diego Music Awards

San Diego's G Burns Jug Band brought home their first San Diego Music Award last night in the category "Best Local Recording" for their sophomore effort, The Southern Pacific and the Santa Fe. It's been quite a year for the quintet, with high-profile appearances up and down the West Coast, and coverage in the San Diego Union Tribune, the San Diego Troubadour, and No Depression.

The award-winning recording was done at Rarefied Studios in San Diego by Chris Hobson.
