Chris Smither - Still on the Levee, A Fifty Year Retrospective (Album Review)

I first heard Chris Smither in 1970. Not live, unfortunately, but on vinyl when picking up his first record I'm A Stranger Here Myself on the Poppy label, unheard, for the simple reason that it was Townes' label. I figured -- rightly so -- any label that knew what a talent he was could certainly be trusted. It did not disappoint. The album not only included a future staple that would be covered by many folks -- most famously Bonnie Raitt -- titled "Love You Like a Man,"…

Vancouver International Folk Music Festival Day One (Jericho Beach, Vancouver BC - July 18th, 2014)

A glorious run of unseasonably warm weather for a couple of weeks in Vancouver had me all but convinced that the 37th annual edition of the Vancouver International Folk Music Festival would see rain. We can rarely rely on the sun for that long in the Pacific Northwest, so it seemed like a sure thing. As it turns out I was wrong —…

By the Time You Read This, It'll Be Over: A Pre-Newport Ramble

Missing the first night -- likely the best of the three, given my taste and interest -- is sort of a bummer. But, on the other hand there's still two more days and nights to wander around the festival site, to hopefully discover a new act or the reinvention of something old. And, to be completely honest, the music and performances will run second to just being there.

This will be my first trip to the Newport Folk Festival and, if you believe in ghosts like I do, brushing up…

Danny Petroni & Frank Lacy - The Blue Project (Album Review)

Guitarist Danny Petroni teamed up with Frank Lacy to create a modern blues, jazz, and soul band that he bills as the “Sound of Asbury Park.” The result is the self-titled release The Blue Project

The album is a collection of hymns about the common man's struggle and inner city view of modern life, mixed with good, old-time, horsing-around fun. Vocalist and trombone…

Instrumentally Speaking...Woodstock Gets Hungry for Music

In 1992, while he was enrolled at George Washington University, Jeff Campbell had an idea that initially was inspired by a class project. The concept was to bring street musicians and other D.C. music talent together for a concert called Hungry for Music, that would benefit the Coalition Against Homelessness.

These concerts were held in 1992 and 1993, and included a food drive. Two…
