You are getting sleeeeeepy. Midsummer Night Dreams: reveries, yearning, heartbreak, memories, and sand…don’t dream it’s over.
Trying to balance anger and hope. We’ll see how it goes.
Trying to get in the Summer mood with Darrell Scott, Dar Williams, Scott Miller, new Patty Griffin, a little preview of the Black Opry Review at the Freight (6/30/22), and low-key sprinkled with LGBTQ+ artists for Pride month. Yum!
A bit of Bloomsday celebrating, on the eve of the best literary holiday ever; music associated with Ulysses, James Joyce and Dublin. A few Sunny songs not really about the weather… And a handful of miscellaneous tunes that suit my mood this week.
New songs from Wynonna & Waxahatchee, Tedeschi Trucks, S.G Goodman, Edgar Winter, Steep Canyon Rangers…plus treasures from Kelly Joe Phelps, Amy Winehouse, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Ray Charles, Nina Simone Jimmy LaFave, Tony Rice, Mavis Staples, and more.
A new track from Amanda Shires, but mostly old friends to provide a little rest in these weary times.
New sounds for the waning days of the fund drive! New (and new-old) music from Amythyst Kiah, Joy Oladukun, Mavis & Levon, Eli Paperboy Reed, Nicki Bluhm, Bret McKenzie and more. A neo-trad-70’s-mashup set from a handful of young Irish vocalists, and a sideways goodbye to Vangelis.
Fundraise We Must – but our pleas for cash are nonetheless accompanied by some fine music from The Felice Brothers, Sturgill Simpson and Willie Nelson, Jesse deNatale, Jesse Malin, Stevie Wonder, Sam & Dave, Allison Moorer, Duffy, and Molly Tuttle, among many others. Come for the tunes, stay for the sparkling cyanide.
