Recent roots reviews

I’I haven’t posted here at Fervor Coulee for a month, which is bad. I have been writing, which may also be bad depending on your opinion. Thought I would catch up by posting some of the links I’ve neglected. Lee Ann Womack is a singer I didn’t have any familiarity with prior to reviewing her… Continue reading Recent roots reviews

Jason Tyler Burton and Dear Jean (Ritchie) Tribute reviews

My reviews of the new releases from folk singer/songwriter Jason Burton Tyler and a wonderful tribute to Jean Ritchie entitled Dear Jean: Artists Celebrate Jean Ritchie are up at Lonesome Road Review. Both are impressive, in very different ways. Jason Burton Tyler has a crisp vision for recording his world and experiences, while the artists… Continue reading Jason Tyler Burton and Dear Jean (Ritchie) Tribute reviews

Bradford Lee Folk & the Bluegrass Playboys- Somewhere Far Away

My rather lengthy examination of Bradford Lee Folk (formerly of Open Road) and The Bluegrass Playboy’s Somewhere Far Away has been posted to the Lonesome Road Review, HERE. If you don’t know Brad and his brand of bluegrass, you should. Give him a listen.

Carlene Carter- Carter Girl review

Lives are full of regret. Some are substantive- treating someone cruelly and without regard, overlooking a crocus when focused on a rose, not having the foresight to realize the importance of traveling but two hours to catch a Bill Monroe show- while others are mere annoyance- not catching a nap when you could have, thinking… Continue reading Carlene Carter- Carter Girl review

Cahalen Morrison & Eli West- I’ll Swing My Hammer With Both My Hands review

This album has been out for more than three months, but I just got around to absorbing it during the past two weeks. Like their previous release, this one is pretty spectacular. It isn’t bluegrass certainly, but it should appeal to folks who enjoy bluegrass, old-time, folk, and acoustic Americana. As always, I appreciate you… Continue reading Cahalen Morrison & Eli West- I’ll Swing My Hammer With Both My Hands review

Jeff Black- Folklore review

Jeff Black continues to develop as a singer and songwriter. Given that he has, for more than a decade, been performing at the highest artistic levels a folk- country slash Americana musician and singer can expect to achieve that is no small statement. His albums Birmingham Road and B-Sides and Confessions, Volume One have been… Continue reading Jeff Black- Folklore review

Dirk Powell- Walking Through Clay review

My review of Dirk Powell’s Sugar Hill album Walking Through Clay has been posted by Aaron over at the Lonesome Road Review. The album came out in early February, and made its way to me this month. Seldom does an album so consume my attention as this one has. In my opinion, and that’s all I’ve… Continue reading Dirk Powell- Walking Through Clay review

Eric Brace & Karl Straub- Hangtown Dancehall review

I have a very strong feeling that 2014’s list of Roots Albums of the Year will be even more challenging to create than the last several years. No shortage of candidates already, and we’re less than a quarter of the way through. Eric Brace and Karl Straub’s exceptional Hangtown Dancehall is certain to receive considerable… Continue reading Eric Brace & Karl Straub- Hangtown Dancehall review

Junior Sisk & Joe Mullins- Hall of Fame Bluegrass review

The best thing I’ve heard all week! An excellent bluegrass album- fluid and lively, without a hint of self-satisfaction. My review of this release of the highest quality is posted at the Lonesome Road Review. Junior and Joe know bluegrass. You’ll want to purchase this recent Rebel Records release. I just found out I previously wrote about… Continue reading Junior Sisk & Joe Mullins- Hall of Fame Bluegrass review
