I’ve fallen behind with my Roots Song of the Week feature, and hope this week’s song makes up for that. Last week I was pleased to again visit Kansas City during my spring break, and that means an evening at The Record Bar to hear Bob Walkenhorst perform. The night was special in a number of… Continue reading Roots Song of the Week: Bob Walkenhorst- “Buck O’Neil”

Rex Hobart & Bob Walkenhorst (& Jeff Porter) at Kansas City’s The Record Bar
Rex Hobart and his band…whose name I’ve completely misplaced in the increasingly cluttered filing cabinet of my mind…played a terrific pair of sets at The Record Bar Tuesday night. Hobart plays the Westport establishment the first Tuesday of every month, and while he hasn’t released an album is way too long he continues to sound… Continue reading Rex Hobart & Bob Walkenhorst (& Jeff Porter) at Kansas City’s The Record Bar
I have made it to Kansas City!
Insert Wilbert Harrison cliché at your leisure. I was fortunate this past winter to have one of my supervisors suggest a course of training. Upon investigation, I discovered the only session being offered over my spring break was in Kansas City! As a result, not only do I get to do some much-needed professional development this… Continue reading I have made it to Kansas City!

25 Albums I’m Really Glad I Listened To This Summer- Part 2
Continuing the journey… Pale Imperfect Diamond Cedar Hill Refugees (Effigy Records, 2009) I can’t say John Carter Cash’s production decisions do a lot for me, but on this disc- which brings the musical influences of Uzbekistan to Nashville- he and Jack Clift get it pretty much right. Jadoo is the name of the Uzbek band… Continue reading 25 Albums I’m Really Glad I Listened To This Summer- Part 2
Generic, boring bluegrass vs. The Rainmakers
So I have no energy to do ‘real’ work- the kind I make my living at- tonight, so I figure I’ll listen to one of the many CDs I have piled up on the shelf waiting to review. I won’t name the band- hell, Carrie Hassler & Hard Rain- and it is excruciating. The most unimaginative and… Continue reading Generic, boring bluegrass vs. The Rainmakers
