Flyinshoes Review

Welcome to FSR our Roots Music Reviewers & Pod/broadcasters Community

If you haven’t hosted a House Concert yet, please make it a new year’s resolution!

Why not invite your favourite independent musician to play for your friends family and his fans in your front room, I’ll be surprised if he/she won’t show up sometime this year and play for you, let me know about it and if The Medicine Show Radio Moose Mobile is loose is near enough we’ll come and broadcast it too. If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

When it comes to outstanding singer-songwriter/ instrumentalists Darrell Scott is a man among boys in most cases. Such is his colossal prowess as a guitarist, acoustic, pedal steel and he also plays a fine banjo, mandolin, piano and anything else you might like to add.

When it comes to possessing a distinctive music style plus a unique vocal style then Steve Selvidge has a great deal to offer and with him combining songs from his own pen with selective covers (Tom T Hall, Tim Hardin, Donovan, Townes Van Zandt etc) he is not to be ignored. A creative genius he is a shrewd intelligent act who masterfully weaves a finely spun tapestry of… Continue

Americana singer-songwriter David Olney has long been admired and respected in the music business, especially so by the East Nashville’s East fraternity and beyond. Since the likes of Emmylou Harris and others have seen fit to record his material. Songs, I hasten to add that posses a greater meaning and depth… Continue
