Fervor Coulee’s Favourite Roots & Bluegrass Albums of 2017

Steve Forbert “Hey Good Lookin'”-“Four Strong Winds”

If I was a good blogger, I would have mentioned this two weeks ago. Steve Forbert is giving away tracks recorded live in Seattle (Oct. 2010), but only a track per day and they are only up for two days each.
