Recent Roots Americana Reviews

Things have been hopping in the Fervor Coulee Bunker. Several reviews have been posted at the usual sites. Darrell 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 Clark passed this week, and I can’t add to the quality of tributes shared… Continue reading Recent Roots Americana Reviews

Eric Brace & Peter Cooper- C & O Canal review

 I suspect that I would enjoy passing time about a round table with a cool beverage in my hand in the company of either Eric Brace or Peter Cooper. Two of my favourite musicians, songwriters, and wordsmiths, Cooper and Brace have released a strong slate of albums over the past decade. C & O Canal,… Continue reading Eric Brace & Peter Cooper- C & O Canal review

Catching Up on Missed Cross-Posts

I try to link through everything I write for Lonesome Road Review, Country Standard Time, and Fervor Coulee Bluegrass here at Fervor Coulee, but inevitably some items get missed. While watching the new Bear Family DVD of BR5-49’s live 1996 German show, I thought I would try to catch some of the missed links. I’m… Continue reading Catching Up on Missed Cross-Posts

Based out of the Boston area (kinda), they don’t garner airplay of Sirius and Bluegrass Junction (as far as I know,) they haven’t found themselves on the cover… Continue reading Barnstar!- Sit Down!

Pharis & Jason Romero- A Wanderer I’ll Stay review

2015 is not yet half done and we’ve had no shortage of amazing albums come our way. Simply the latest comes from small town British Columbia and the husband and wife duo Pharis and Jason Romero. Wonderful material, unvarnished voices, and instrumental compatibility infused with the warmth of the past, their third album is a… Continue reading Pharis & Jason Romero- A Wanderer I’ll Stay review

Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys- Ionia review

A darned good little album from a group recently relocated to Nashville and named as International Bluegrass Music Association Showcase artists for the upcoming trade show and musical celebration in Raleigh this autumn. I am not overly familiar with Lindsay Lou & the Flatbellys, but watched a live show on the YouTube and found them… Continue reading Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys- Ionia review
