Rosanne Cash – The River & The Thread (Album Review)

A feather's not a bird The rain is not the sea A stone is not a mountain But a river runs through meRosanne Cash wrote these words before The River & The Thread was conceived, but the rest of the song was apparently waiting for a geographical context before it showed itself. The context that the chorus found was a trip through the edges of Appalachia, over to the top of the Mississippi Delta, and across the River into Arkansas.  Ms. Cash knew that it had happened during a sewing lesson from…See More

"the Willie Sugarcapps album was in my Top 10 for 2013 and (hopefully) deserves to be in the ND Top Ten. Looking forward to hearing Sideshow Love in 2014."

Blackie and the Rodeo Kings – South (Album Review)

"South is where we're at right now.  Who we are is not important. Who we'll be is unknown. America needs Blackie and the Rodeo Kings. They are starving for us and they don't even know it . . . yet."  That's band member Tom Wilson summing up his take on South, the new acoustic offering from Canadian root-rockers Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.Wilson's right, at least as far as I'm concerned. I was starving for this record and, until a short time ago, I didn't know it. My exposure to the group…See More

Will Kimbrough's Sideshow Love

Sideshow Love takes all the pretty paper off the gift of love. Or, if we take the carnival metaphor a step further, it's love as the opposite of a roller coaster, the fun part first, hands up in the air, next to someone special, wind in your face, feeling that feeling ... then the ride is over and you hear that chain thing engage and you're being pulled along somewhere you're not sure you want to go with someone you're not so sure you dig so much anymore.  And though the chain keeps grinding…See More

You Can't Teach A Pig To Sing

"Never try to teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of time and besides it annoys the pig." Robert A. Heinlein

Every year about now, I get tempted to engage in some porcine education. From my lofty perch as a sometimes blogger and devoted Americana/Folk fan, I feel the need to explain my music to The Recording Academy voters. It never fails, year after year. The Grammy nominations come out and I think, what the hell were they thinking? How in the world could they have missed that…

Good to make your acquaintance Mando Lines. We obviously share an interest for some of the same music. Many reviews I do on No Depression are a mix of American, European (Scotland)  Australian, New Zealand and Canadian artists -- seems this world is filled with some very talented artists that have interpreted and reinterpreted Americana-Roots in wondrous ways. And Mississippi -- what a hot bed for great music that state is. J.

The Civil Wars did perform at the AMA's. They sang Barton Hollow and got a roaring standing ovation. Their appearance was questionable prior to, because J.P. White had lost his voice and had to cancel previous concerts leading up to the AMA's.
Their success can be attributed to so much more than Taylor Swift's tweets...in fact, I heard of them through Justin Townes Earle and Billy Reid tweets. A free download on ITunes and videos on Utube the word as well. So, please continue to learn more about this duo who have paid their dues prior to their coming together.
