The Union Grove Pickers - Great Plains Driftin' (Album Review)

I'm a guy that thinks Generic folk rock string bands are a dime a dozen.  Yep.  Too much flannel, corduroy and polite unshaven young people playing banjos, guitars and fiddles out there.  Not too many of these sorts of bands grab my attention -If memory serves Ohio's The Tillers were the last one that really grabbed my attention as of late...until now.

Hang on to your wigs and keys folks - because you're about be introduced to one of the best, brightest string…

RIP T- Model Ford

Mississippi Blues man T-Model Ford has died, according to Fat Possum/Epitaph Records.  He was somewhere between the age of 89-93, but since his exact birthdate is unknown no one knows for sure.

According to records, Ford's year of birth is between 1921 and 1925. According to his half-sister (still alive in Tennessee), he was born in 1922. Starting with an abusive father who had permanently injured him at eleven, Ford has lived his entire life in a distressed and violent…
