On episode 159 of the Americana Music Show, Bill Kirchen plays three tracks from “Seeds and Stems” and talks about his “slack-jaw ham-fisted rock & roll,” predating the outlaw movement, and passing his songs on to the next generation. Plus country rock from The Wild Ponies, beautiful string band music from Mandolin Orange, soulful folk from The Wood Brothers, americana from John Fogerty, bogie blues from the North Mississippi Allstars, classic soul from Doris Allen, new acoustic music from Yarn, and rockabilly from Tim Easton.
It's that time of year again! Nominations have just opened for the 2013 Podcast Awards. I need YOUR help to get on the ballot. The final ballots are determined by who can get the most listeners to nominate their show. So I'm asking, no begging, you to show your support by nominating the Americana Music Show in the Podsafe Music Show category. It will only take a few minutes of your time and it will help promote the show if we can put the show on the final ballot. The nominating period runs from October 1-15 so do it today!
Left Lane Cruiser has a new one out called Rock Them Back To Hell. Think Scott H Biram on steroids. It's lo-fi electric blues from front to back and yes it would make a great road trip CD. I'm adding "Overtakem," "Be So Fine," and "Coley" to rotation.
Ha Ha Tonka is on a mega tour to push their latest effort Lessons. Highly recommend seeing them live. I'm liking the wide-open harmonies and groovy-esque feel to the music. I'm adding "Staring At The End Of Our Lives," and "The Past Has Arms" to rotation.
