My latest BIG ENCHILADA PODCAST: Hillbilly Pig Out



It's a Hillbilly Pig Out this month on The Big Enchilada, a delicious high-cholesterol feast of Dixie-fried rockabilly, hickory-smoked honky-tonk madness, pickled bluegrass, meaty backwoods boogie and crazy country side… Continue

Albert Lee Down Under

We've only been running house concerts at Petersham Bowling Club for a couple of months & when the opportunity to host legendary British picker Albert Lee arose I could barely contain myself. I'd provided lights & some production when he played a similar event at a local Town Hall a couple of years back but was gigging myself that night. Bringing an artist of this stature to my own (be careful what you wish for) venue, & someone who has been a personal… Continue

Marty Stuart’s debut on Sugar Hill records differs little from previous efforts from this traditionalist. Only this recording is better than most any he has made. Other than his concept album ‘The Pilgrim’ I hasten to add, a record that had long been indelibly etched in my… Continue

New songs coming soon...

Chelsea and I are working on 2 killer songs. Stale Bread is a bluesy and hopefully mysterious piece about the Dust Bowl. Lyin' Here is a love song, with classical guitar, a string quartet, grand piano, and a sweet guitar solo using a Rat pedal that I bought from Peter Stroud back in the 80's. Peter Stroud is Cheryl Crow's guitar player and music director, but he used to work at Atlanta Discount Music. The Rat produces a creamy sweet fuzz tone, unlike any other. Ah, my little… Continue

Rob Ellen and his quiet, dignified control of the music and the evening, was missed last night. It was noisy and shambolic and good musicians were not accorded the respect of attention while the two girl group who finished the evening were unsuited for the venue. Their act would go down better in a pub environment. I've been attending for a while but would not go back for this standard of entertainment. Sorry to say this as we have had many great evenings over there.

Damn Hot, Strathpeffer Coffee House

It was a damn cold night in Strathpeffer tonight, and where else would you want to be , but in the Coffee House, listening to good music, with an Americano express and some blueberry muffins?

Well the coffee and cakes made an impact, and you can't beat a cup of damn hot coffee, but after three covers from Damn Hot, the female belters of the cliche rock classics, using a highly clever trick of substituting original gender references to the opposite , eg The Girls are Back in Town… Continue

Tift Merritt - See you on the Moon - CD review

Tift Merritt – See You On The Moon Tracks: 12

I will hold up my hand and admit I have loved all of North Carolina’s Tift Merritt’s three previous albums and have often wondered why she isn’t up there with the best of them. I was expecting big things from this new CD release so was somewhat disappointed, thus, when on first listen, my immediate reaction wasn’t… Continue

Mary Gauthier - The Foundling - CD Review

Mary Gauthier - The Foundling


Singer songwriter Mary Gauthier is revered among songwriters – fact. Her gift lies in going to those dark places of life and the soul, whilst keeping the light shining through it. Her new release The Foundling is no different, despite going to her own personal dark places. She says of this CD, “I was born to an unwed mother in 1962 and… Continue
