Recent Roots Americana Reviews   Leave a comment


Things have been hopping in the Fervor Coulee Bunker. Several reviews have been posted at the usual sites.

42354Darrell Scott has long been a personal favourite. His latest release is very impressive. My review is up at Country Standard Time. http://www.countrystandardtime.com/d/cdreview.asp?xid=5983

Guy and RosanneGuy Clark passed this week, and I can’t add to the quality of tributes shared across the web. I offer only my favourite picture of him, taken in July of 1996 at the Calgary Folk Music Festival. He and Rosanne Cash were singing “Watermelon Dream.” It isn’t an exaggeration to write that Guy Clark changed the way I listen to music. He was a heck of a nice guy the one time I shook his hand, and I know I will listen to his songs to my final days.

James KingJames King also succumbed this week. My thoughts are posted at Fervor Coulee Bluegrass. http://www.countrystandardtime.com/blog/FervorCouleeBluegrass/entry.asp?xid=1090

Additional reviews have been posted at Lonesome Road Review.

nudie-night-itunes-webPEI’s Nudie released an excellent album of country honky tonk this spring: http://lonesomeroadreview.com/everythings-different-night-nudie/

TributeToJackHardy_SmithsonianAlbum_2016Mar__SFS_60007_JackHardyTribute_Cover__BI had never heard of Jack Hardy before receiving A Tribute to Jack Hardy to review. It is quite an interesting album: http://lonesomeroadreview.com/tribute-jack-hardy-various-artists/

Steve-Coffey-Paint-SongsSteve Coffey has long been one of my favourite singer-songwriters, Albertan or otherwise. His latest set is a combination book of paintings and music that has limited release: http://lonesomeroadreview.com/paint-songs-steve-coffey/ I love Coffey’s visual work as much as I love his writing and singing. An amazing package.

More reviews are in the pipeline. Thanks, always, for visiting Fervor Coulee- hopefully you find artists to explore. Donald
