A native son of Monroe, Kirby is usually seen around town with a fiddle under his chin. He has also been a zookeeper, a 911 dispatcher, and currently teaches orchestra at Excellence Academy Charter School in Monroe.
KEDM is a bit of a family tradition for Kirby. His grandfather helped bring the station to northeast Louisiana, and he is thrilled to be helping give a voice our region.
Kirby’s passion is the music and history of the Delta. He and his wife, Lesli, travel throughout the state collecting the stories of the musicians and song that made our region legendary. They are working with organizations across the state to establish a Louisiana Blues Trail.
