Oh, boy what an amazing album. Texan Joe Ely is nothing if not, honest in his music. Better still has lots, lots more to offer. A fine judge of a song he also has an immeasurable advantage over most in that his two great buddies of whom he also performs with as the The Flatlanders; Butch Hancock and Jimmie Dale Gilmore he has fast track access…Continue

Bogguss, in 2008 when on tour with Garrison Keillor had a revelation in that one night on stage it struck her that everyone loves to ‘Red River Valley’ except, the children who don’t know the song. Her observation startled her into wanting to help correct something that the American educational system no longer supplied and put…Continue

Sub-titled Songs from The Musical, Stonewall Country is a wonderful piece of work. I don’t think there is a finer or more enjoyable duo regularly performing, something they have done a great deal the last thirty odd years on…Continue

Now here is one of the most, fun-loving country acts ever to put on a Stetson and call Texas his home! New York State-born and raised, one-time folk troubadour Jerry Jeff after travelling the length and breath of States totting his wares he edged across to country music and drop anchor in the Lone Star State and helped popularise the likes of the small town of Luckenbach and Gruene…Continue

It has always been a mystery why, Jessi Colter singer-songwriter, recording artist and wife of the late Waylon Jennings and previous to that, Duane Eddy never made it bigger. For she has a unique singing voice, cutting and sharp. The kind that sticks with you, and who when she sings a hurting lyric whether or not she wrote it cuts to the quick.
After solo success in…Continue

After hearing and enjoying up to a point, Austin, Texas Betty Soo’s solo album I was more than just pleasantly surprised with Across the Borderline. The meeting of Soo and Vancouver Island, Canada act Doug Cox came about when the couple, who live 2,500 miles apart met while teaching guitar at Acoustic Alaska Guitar…Continue

Surrounded by his band, Kentucky Thunder and more besides Ricky Skaggs revisits his biggest songs from the early 1980s when he was a 'country' act to give them a bluegrass airing. That isn’t to say they didn’t posses a fair share of bluegrass flavourings the first time because they did, and…Continue

I love the solo music of Ms Nevins; even better than when she plays with Donna And The Buffalo. Her bouncy, infectious style strike is a winner. From the moment the first note is struck the album races ahead at a smart lick. As drums joyfully join acoustic guitar, fiddle, accordion, upright bass and pedal steel. The music dances free and easy throughout to aid the beautiful tones of Nevins on…Continue

British blues act Ian Siegal has already gained himself a reputation as being the real deal, but now has the huge bonus of having The Youngest Sons accompany him on his latest recording. The recording is soul-stirring fusion of gut tugging stinging blues and rock —that vibrates from beginning to end in fine fashion. Defied through…Continue

Soon The Birds is the sixth full-length album from Canadian act, Oh Susanna (Suzie Ungerleider) and such is the strength of the melodies to go with her songwriting I would venture to say it is one of her best recordings to…Continue
