Richard Hood & the Licking County Hot Lix

Location: R.A. Fountain

he Hot Lix made their third show at Fountain a memorable one for a full and enthusiastic house.

They hit town with a new CD and some fresh accolades garnered at the Dan Emmett Music Festival, recently concluded in Mt. Vernon, Ohio: guitarist Hayes Griffin won first place in the flat-picking contest and second in banjo picking. He also played rhythm guitar for Richard Hood, who won the banjo competition. And Jacob Hawkins, who plays mandolin in the group, played rhythm guitar in both of Hayes’ competitions. “So it was a Hot Lix kind of day,” reported Richard.

Joining Hood, Griffin, and Hawkins in the band were Kyle Adamcik on fiddle, Jimmy Shepard on bass, and Brynn Lewallen on vocals–which they all shared.
