Chuck Dunlap is a pioneer of the red dirt music scene in Stillwater Oklahoma. As an acoustic guitar playing singer-songwriter he has spread his music from New Orleans to Alaska and to date has 8
album projects available.
Check here for current bookings and available dates. Now playing in Oklahoma with his band The High Desert Riders and a duo with Scott Carson you can bet there is another album or two in the near future.
Chuck had been a winner with "Drop of Stillwater" in the Woody Guthrie songwriting contest and had "My Baby" used on TNT's Saving Grace and Outdoor Network' used "Red Dirt Shoes" on Wild Alaska.
A blend of folk and blues with some red dirt thrown in best describes the music, although the music with the High Desert Riders and teaming up with Scott Carson has blended even more genres into his music.
His most recent accolade came when his song "The Peoples Plea" was re-written and re-purposed to be used as a PSA for healthcare in Oklahoma. Along with a video of over 50 other musicians that participated in the project, "Stand (and let your voice be heard)" was released on youtube in the spring of 2014
