Bryan and the Haggards


Led by saxophonist Bryan Murray, the Haggards perform outlandish, inventive, and often hilarious jazz-instrumental renditions of tunes by the great country songwriter Merle Haggard. Guitarist/banjoist/vocalist Eugene Chadbourne, who’s been infusing country music with hyperactive improvisation and humor for decades, kicks their goofy brilliance into overdive on the quintet’s terrific third album, Merles Just Want to Have Fun.
