Blue Highway's first performance, on Dec. 31, 1994.  

Blue Highway has been spending time in the studio recently, recording new tracks for a special 15th Anniversary collection scheduled for fall release from Rounder.  One of the songs was co-written by Tim Stafford and Darrell Scott (center, between Tim & Shawn), and Darrell joined Blue Highway in the studio, Maggard Sound, to record it.   Awesome lead vocals from Darrell, and an awesome song!

In 1998, Tom Adams joined the band for a two-year stint,
when Jason temporarily left the band.
  The performances in Slovakia and Austria were some of Tom's first with Blue Highway.  His fine contributions to the band can be heard on the self-titled CD, Blue Highway (Ceili Music 1999).
