Thanks to Paul Metsa for stopping in this afternoon. We spent most of the first hour chatting with him, listening to music, and enjoying Paul’s readings from his new book “Blue Guitar Highway”.
New music included releases by Ray Bonneville, Dale Watson, Jon Rodine and Molly Maher.
Tune in next Wednesday as Molly Maher and Jon Rodine join me in a musical round-robin. We’re not going to co-ordinate our songs before the show and will show up not knowing what music the others are bringing in. We’ll then just go around the table playing off of each other. Not sure where it will go, but knowing those two, it’s going to be fun.
Molly Maher & Jon Rodine will also be having a joint CD Release Party, Friday, October 21 at the Cedar Cultural Center. That’s 2 great CD parties in one. How cool is that? Trust me, both of their CDs are top-notch. If you like to listen to Freewheelin’, then your’re guaranteed to enjoy the music of Molly Maher and Jon Rodine.
Want to check out the playlist for this edition of Freewheelin’? Just click “more” and you will see a list of all the artists, song titles, album names, and labels. Kinda’ cool, I’ve been told.
You may also link into the archives of the show by following the above mentioned link.
I’m bringing GURFMORLIX to town at Patrick’s Cabaret, Saturday, October 29. Early show, starts at 7:00. Gurf is best known for his work with Lucinda Williams, Peter Case, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen, Mojo Nixon, Jimmy LaFave, Ruthie Foster, Tom Russell, Jon Langford, Mary Gauthier, and many others.
Americana music galore today. Pete Anderson, who will be playing the Turf Club on November 13, called in during the first hour. Pete’s a killer guitar player who’s worked with Dwight Yoakam, Michelle Shocked, Rosie Flores, Blue Rodeo and a slew of other top shelf artists. Kind of a crappy phone connection, but the interview went well and he seems like a real nice guy (in addition to a great guitar player).
Hour two featured music that Gurf Morlix played on, including Ray Wylie Hibbard, Tom Russell, Jimmy LaFave, Lucinda Williams, and Ray Bonneville.
We’re bringing Gurf Morlix to Patrick’s Cabaret this coming Saturday night. He’s been a big advocate of the music of Blaze Foley and released a CD entitled “Blaze Foley’s 113th Wet Dream” earlier this year.
We’re going to start of the night with live music by Dave Babb, followed by the highly-acclaimed documentary “Blaze Foley: Duct Tape Messiah”, followed by a full performance by Gurf Morlix.
