Christopher Gold was born in Owensboro, Kentucky. The son of a bluegrass musician, he didn’t have to go far to find a passion and available instruction on the mandolin, banjo, and guitar. It wasn’t long before he started writing his own songs and playing them in public. He now splits his time between the folk and bluegrass from his childhood and the punk music from his adolescence, playing and releasing albums under his own name, fronting a blues-punk band called The Dirty Rotten So & So’s, and occasionally being fortunate enough to join in on other peoples songs, including The Wandering Sons, S.S. Web, RedHawks, Holly & Plastic and just about anybody else who asks. He also curates the annual “Dirty Rotten Toy Drive”, a live music event in Appleton that collects money and Christmas gifts for abused children.
