New Releases - Quick takes

Red Tail Ring - Fall Away Blues

Red_Tail_RingRed Tail Ring describes their music as “old time roots, new time sounds.”  Fall Away Blues is exactly that. Their latest offering is a tour de force in traditional playing, complemented by pure, unaffected vocals and beautiful close harmonies.  Lauren Premo and Michael Beauchamp’s original compositions give this collection modern sensibilities.  Yet those tracks feel right at home alongside their excellent interpretations of traditional tunes.   An extremely listenable album.  Highly recommended.

Chatham County Line - Autumn

Chathm Co Line - AutumnChatham County Line delivers another solid collection of intelligent songwriting and inspired playing.   If the title suggests more than just the timing of its release, Autumn is aptly named.   CCL paints with a rich palette of colors to create the vivid Bon Ton Roulet, the ethereal Moving Pictures of My Mind, and the mysterious Dark Rider.   Other tracks range from buoyant (Rock in the River)  to rollicking (Show Me the Door) , while the instrumental Bull City Strut shows off some brilliant picking and musical chemistry.

Stream Update - Ad-Free Listening Coming Soon

Advertising heard on our broadcast helps to pay for the multitude of expenses incurred when streaming music via the internet (licensing and royalties, stream hosting, web hostiing, etc.).  We are aware, however, that many listeners would prefer an ad-free option.  We're happy to announce that a commercial-free stream will be offered soon.  Stay tuned!
