RICKY SKAGGS —SOLO, SONGS MY DAD LOVED (Skaggs Family Records) with Video Interview

www.skaggsfamilyrecords.com

People have admired the versatility of Ricky Skaggs ever since he came to the fore in the 1970s. When he played with another precocious talent, the late Keith Whitley in Ralph Stanley’s Clinch Mountain Boys and J.D Crowe’s famed, New South then, as a multi-Grammy winning solo act. Not to forget, either, is his time with the Country Gentlemen, recordings with flat-picker, vocalist Tony Rice and… Continue

WSM RADIO LAUNCHES IT'S FIRST NEW LIVE RADIO PROGRAM IN DECADES AND I WAS THERE TO COVER IT.

(This was written a couple of months ago for a British publication but I thought you all might dig it. JR)





It was a dark and stormy night in The Music City and the flashing, "NO VACANCY" sign in front of the old Loveless Motel was no lie because it was elbow room only but CMR Nashville's Jefferson Ross was thrilled to be on hand for the premier episode of the legendary WSM Radio's new series, "Music City Roots", a weekly, live radio program that will be broadcast every… Continue

I AM STILL A JELLY DOUGHNUT!!!

20 YEARS SINCE THE BERLIN WALL FELL AND I, TOO, AM A JELLY DOUGHNUT! (11/09/09)

(I wrote this a couple of months ago as a blog and I'm re-printing it here because I am returning to Berlin in a few weeks. Thanks for reading!)



Today, marks 20 years since the Berlin Wall fell and it seems like yesterday.



I had been in Berlin a short time before that, busking around Europe, and marveled at how it was the only modern, walled city on Earth. I visited both the East and the… Continue

JAMES HAND —SHADOW ON THE GROUND (Rounder/Decca)

www.jamesslimhand.com

Fame came to James Hand late in life, but boy doesn’t he know how to sing old-fashioned brand of country music. Better than the fresh-faced new hyped acts and otherwise coming out of Nashville that is for sure, he is the real deal who can count among his fans such country music legends as Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson (‘you believe him’) and who am I to argue.



Like with his Rounder debut, The… Continue

ISRAEL NASH GRIPKA —NEW YORK TOWN (Continental Song City)

www.continental.nl

Superb hooky rhythms and in general, lots happening with Jim Zhivago (who also produced the album), Blake Fleming and Rich Hinman in support to his own acoustic, electric guitar, banjo and harp —the music is tight and such is the energy and creative flare of Gripka there are no holes or lack of fullness. Israel’s music and vocals have some John Fogerty tendencies as he swamps the listener with the likes of ‘Pray For… Continue

DAVE RAWLINGS MACHINE —A FRIEND OF A FRIEND (ACONY)

www.daverawlingsmachine.com

www.aconyrecords.com

At long last Dave Rawlings has decided to step out from the shadows of his partner, Gillian Welch, and as anticipated he brings a great deal to the table. A huge talent, Rawlings brings together the music of what you would expect from the Old Crow Medicine Show (with whom he has worked) and hints of The Band. Great stuff.

TEN YEARS AFTER - 40 YEARS LATER : THE HEROES OF WOODSTCOK 2009 REUNION





So what was I expecting on my noon arrival in little Bethel NY ?

Half a million people over a wide hilly open plain in the rain ..again - NO.

LZ Love & Lightning Red -- Gut Bucket Blues - Own Label (media)



LZ Love has an impressive list of artists that she has sung and toured with including Joan Armatrading and Luther Vandross but she has returned to her blues and gospel roots to team up with guitarist Lightning Red. The opening Been Lonely is drawled out and LZ has such a soulful voice. Red strums away in the background and adds some background vocals towards the end. You can feel her pain with every syllable. Wang Dang Doodle is the famous old… Continue
