JEFF & VIDA —SELMA CHALK (Rosebank Records)

http://www.jeffandvida.com

Oh, how I love the bluegrass/ country sound of Jeff & Vida. With fine instrumental support given to the distinctive vocals of the multi-talented, Vida Wakeman and her partner Jeff Burke who plays mandolin and lends fine harmony vocal support (and sings some lead).

While she possesses a likeness to Rounder recording act Claire Lynch on the bluegrass cuts her approach to country music is… Continue

DAVID SERBY —HONKYTONK AND VINE (Harbor Grove)

www.davidserby.com

www.myspace.com/davidserby

A honky tonker through and through, David Serby aided by Skip Edwards, Gabe Witcher and Rick Shea alongside his core band of Edward Tree, Taras Prodanuik and Gary Ferguson weaves together a string of easy on the ear barroom fare.

The work of producer Tree on lead guitar and the keyboards / accordion of Edwards on the infectious ‘For Cryin’ Out Loud’ —complete with a little Spanish styled acoustic guitar and the likewise, bright and… Continue

Americana at Belladrum (The Potting Shed Files)

Americana at Belladrum (The Potting Shed Files)



A small corner of the Belladrum Festival, not far from Inverness, is a haven of musicality and generosity of musical spirit, away from the bombast and posturing of the main stages. Well I'm being unkind; I heard some magnificent music on each of… Continue

Madison Violet —No Fool For Trying (True North)

www.madisonviolet.com

Canadian singer-songwriters, Brenley MacEachern and Lisa MacIsaac from two small Scottish towns met up nine years ago and have since become an impressive vocal duo. With three albums to their name, the first two recorded in London and produced by John Reynolds (Sinead O’Connor, U2 and Damien Dempsey) it is now the time of new beginnings. For the girls have not only changed their name (they were… Continue

Alecia Nugent —Hillbilly Goddess (Rounder)

www.rounderrecords.com

Modern-day bluegrass girl, Alecia Nugent makes the kind of music that makes you feel good. Backed by a set of hot pickers and a mixture of uptempo and slow, deliberate ballads that sketch evocative vignettes in one’s mind she is rather special.

Nugent who, like Rhonda Vincent to who’s style of music I find myself drawing comparisons sings like a bird, free and easy and it doesn’t stop there.… Continue

Ray Wylie Hubbard —Snake Farm (Bordello records)

http://www.reverbnation.com/raywyliehubbard



Ray Wylie Hubbard makes feisty, full-blown booming Texas roots Americana music of the finest order. With his acoustic and slide guitar aided by producer and good friend, Gurf Morlix (electric guitar, vocals), Rick Richards (percussion, drums) and George Reiff (bass) with guests Ray Bonneville, Jeff Plankenhorn, Peter Rowan, Seth James and Jack Saunders —the… Continue

Ben Bullington —White Sulphur Springs (Independent)

www.benbullington.com



Oh, how I love the relaxed tone of Ben Bullington’s music, and I am not the only one full of admiration for him, either. Since Texas singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell who guests on one cut, ‘Toe The Line’ playing resophonic guitar and lending superb vocal support to a song could just as easily have written and justifiably been proud of doing so!

Warm, vocally, the playing from Fats Kaplin… Continue

Jean Shepard —Beautiful Lies ; The Early Years (Jasmine)

www.jasmine-records.co.uk

When it comes to vintage, classic country music you would have to place traditional country music stalwart, Jean Shepard alongside the likes of Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb and Roy Acuff —her pure, clear as spring water vocals have few if any peers of the idiom.

Taken from her recordings of the 1950s, Beautiful Lies capture Shepard at her brilliant best. While, apart from ‘Satisfied Mind’ and ‘Beautiful Lie’s she saw little chart success the standard is… Continue

Todd Snider —The Excitement Plan (Continental Record Services)

www.toddsnider.net

www.continental.nl

East Nashville singer-songwriter Todd Snider conforms to little other than that of being a creative talent and a talent. Produced by Don Was he sounds as good if not better than ever before. His music is spare with Snider on guitar, harp and piano, Greg Leisz on steel guitar and dobro, Jim Keltner, drums and Was on upright bass as he eases out an evocative set of tunes. Snider’s work on the couple or so occasions he plays piano is likewise superb… Continue
