Howdy,

Between visiting friends and family, and eating massive amounts of Thanksgiving dinner, not much happened this week in the way of music auditions. I blame the turkey. And the cranberry sauce (with Amaretto), and stuffing. and chocolate pie. You get the idea. Not a single one of the football teams I root for won this past week. grrrr. But it was good to visit with various branches of my extended family and I got to see new new Muppet movie with a five year old which made it new and fun. Good Thanksgiving all around. I’ll be back on schedule with auditions next week.

I’ve begun working on the Best of 2011 show which will be broadcast on the  live show and the 24×7 webcast. But due to the unfair laws regarding podcasting, I won’t be able to put the Best of 2011 show on the podcast. Write your congressional reps and complain.

On episode 63 of the Taproot Podcast, Scotty Alan talks about living in the wilds of Michigan, his punk rock days, making music at home, how he found himself in Los Angeles to record his CD, Wreck and the Mess, and his “Irish roots.”

I’m boking sponsors and interviews for December shows. So if you have an event you’d like to market to hard core roots audiences, let me know.

Dig Deep,
Calvin

Howdy,

Red Molly is going into rotation this week. Given that Taproot Radio is based in Chapel Hill, NC, I can’t help but compare them to our local legendary female trio, Tres Chicas. I think Red Molly compares favorably to Tres Chicas and there’s room enough for them both on the twangy landscape. I especially like Red Molly’s cover of Bddy Miller’s  “Does My Ring Burn Your Finger” on their latest CD, Light In The Sky.

I’m also adding the band, R. Mutt into rotation this week. I believe they are based out of Wisconsin but they would fit right into any southern rock music festival. heavy hitting straight up rock and roll from these guys. It feels good listening to this in the car.

On Episode 62 of the Taproot Podcast, Ernie Hawkins talks about the influence The Rev Gary Davis’s early days in Durham, the influence Davis has had on his own music, the technique of playing guitar riffs as if they are piano or horm lines, and his upcoming show at the University of North Carolina’s Southern Folklife Center.

Howdy,

Mandoln Orange played at the Berkeley Cafe this past week. I’m proud to say I got their first real interview on an early episode of the podcast. Hayes Carll was also in town this past week, playing at the Cat’s Cradle. So it was good week for music in Carrboro!

In new music news this week, The Elders have a new CD out that’s going into rotation which you should check out. They have a big dramatic sound you don’t often get in roots music.

On Episode 61 of the Taproot Podcast, Tilford Sellers talks about his roots music inspirations on his most recent release, What You’re Doing To Me, how he writes smooth sounding lyrics, and shares a cut from his most recent recording session.

Howdy,
Got some twangy indie rock going into rotation this week from Paladino. They’ve got that deep woods visionary thing down pat. Very interesting and enjoyable music.

Cam Penner’s new CD, Gypsy Summer also going into rotation this week. Kinda reminds me of Ray La Montagne in his songwriting style. Good stuff.

No new podcast eps this week. But I’ve been working on lining up interviews and looks like I’ve got a full plate for the rest of the year! Stay tuned.

Howdy,

Danny Barnes, of Bad Livers’ fame and other subversive bluegrass and rock experiments, has a new CD coming out called Rocket. He’s going full tilt metal now while still dragging his banjo into territory it’s never been before. Among other metal originals, this one’s got a cover of Bang A Gong. Fun stuff. Great to have some excellent rock and roll on the show.

Another notable addition this week is Wreck and Mess from Scotty Alan. Not sure the story behind his music. The one sheet says he lives “off the grind” in Michigan but his accent sounds very Irish to me. And hey, how can you be off the grid if you have a web site. But anyway, I’m picking at nits. I really enjoy his songs.

On episode 58 of the Taproot Podcast, Rick Miller from Southern Culture On The Skids talks about their new CD, Zombiefied, his foray into horror movie video making, his 5 year old son’s band, life at Kudzu Ranch, and the band’s plans for Halloween.
