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

Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen


Maurice Hope's Blog – October 2010 Archive (8)


Oh, how good it is to hear this tribute to John Hartford. Acoustic, stripped back and simple from the outset this is something he would be so proud of and righty so.

With his band of the last five Rounder albums he made, members… Continue

Wildwood is the bands fifth album and with current members Dave Wilson, John Teer, Chandler Holt and Greg Readling at the helm and, like the previous recordings it is the business.

Combining bluegrass, country and rock the North Carolina band produce a dynamic mix of music that offers shades of varying degrees of the Old Crow Medicine Show and funny enough vocal harmonies… Continue

JUDY COLLINS —PARADISE (Wildflower Records)

I am a long time fan of Judy Collins, forever taken by the purity of her crystal clear vocals, but Paradise on first listen came as a disappointment. Yet such is her performance with the help of contributions by Joan Baez, Stephen Stills and Michael Johnson the album makes the finishing line with an ease that only Collins and the like could manage.

With the cd… Continue

Put out by Hemifran this 17-track compilation has a wonderful array of talent on display, ranging from Jackson Browne to Keith Miles by way of the fabulous Joel Rafael and Jack Tempchin who are first and second in the running order and well worth the position.

Greg Copeland, Steve Noonan, Vince Melamed whom like Rafael and Tempchin help set the benchmark on this wonderful… Continue

It isn’t too often that I hear an act that really excites me in snatches never mind to the degree Gastonia, North Carolina act Brent Cates captured my imagination the very first… Continue

When it comes to two-offers on BGO records those featuring the music of Merle Haggard are as good, if not better than any the label has on offer.

Born and raised in California, Haggard after years on Capitol moved on to MCA before settling for Sony and where this mid-1980s set hails. Kern River is an amazing selection of diverse songs. The title-cut ‘Kern River’ that speaks… Continue

Chicken & Eggs is yet another fine album from singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist all-round ace act Tim O’Brien. As he brings together a feast of flavours to the table to go with his inquisitive creative instinct he also has a bunch of good friends join him on a set of tunes that encompass folk, country, bluegrass and is enriched by a little rockabilly trucking… Continue

When it comes to country music of the old school; I am talking Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Lefty Frizzell and Hank Williams and the likes there are few better on today’s scene other than Wayne… Continue
