Ron Myhr replied to Randy Brown's discussion 'What Are You Listening To?'
"That song with Ryan Adams is on the Trinity Revisited recording, which comes with both a CD and a DVD.  The DVD concert recording is outstanding, with great 5.1 sound and lots of the special ambience of the Trinity Church where it was recorded.…"

"Nice, helpful.  I have South, have had for some time, but I can't say I've yet listened closely.  Must do. As a prairie boy myself (that was a long time ago) I think I really must get the Del Barber album; my son just the other…"

Ron Myhr commented on Michael Bialas's blog post 'Welcoming Back the (Mighty) Duhks: An Interview With Leonard Podolak and Jessee Havey'
"I should make it clear that I really like the new record and the new line-up.  Change is the lifeblood of music, inevitable and desirable.  I'll still miss Tania and Scott and Jordan, though."

"I've been listening to a recording from a few years ago, the Tim Posgate Hornband, the album Banjo Hockey.  It never gets old.   There was a great review and interview with Tim posted here,…"

Ron Myhr replied to Randy Brown's discussion 'What Are You Listening To?'
"I love that Trinity Revisited album, for Ryan Adams, but also for Natalie Merchant and for Vic Chesnutt who guested as well, and for the original band which is in fine form at the church where the eoriginal Trinity Sessions was recorded.  The…"

Ron Myhr commented on Michael Bialas's blog post 'Welcoming Back the (Mighty) Duhks: An Interview With Leonard Podolak and Jessee Havey'
"Nice article Michael.  I will admit that I'm sad to see Tania Elizabeth out of the picture (although she, too, claims to be a lifelong Duhk).  She always seemed to me to be at the core of the old Duhks, and she was very involved in…"

Ron Myhr commented on Rick J Bowen's blog post 'Colleen Rennison - See The Sky about to Rain (Album Review)'
"Just got this album, haven't listened to it yet.  Even more motivation. Good one to download from, cheaper then iTunes, with a lossless (flac) option at no extra cost. Joni Mitchell a BC native?  Nope, born Fort McLeod AB,…"

Ron Myhr commented on Easy Ed's blog post 'Are You (BandPage) Experienced?'
"The whole revenue issue is complex.  No doubt streaming services are compromising download services, and the revenue implications for artists are dire.  However, we need to really take a close look at the big picture. It's never been…"

Ron Myhr commented on Jim Morrison's blog post 'Duo-ing Banjos: Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn Make It a Family Affair'
"I think Abigail is wonderful, and I have most of her records.  I, too, think City of Refuge is sublime -- it's a departure, no Chinese singing and a different sound, but still sublime.  There are musicians who pass by, pleasant to…"

Ron Myhr commented on Gary Burnett's blog post 'Hans Theessink: A life in the blues (Interview)'
"I've followed Hans for some time, and have several recordings.  It's all great, but I find the work with Terry Evans really exceptional.  Hans has a great baritone voice, sings well, but Terry brings real punch to the…"

Ron Myhr commented on Adam Kukic's blog post 'An Introduction to the Interwoven Web of the Wainwright Children: Rufus, Martha & Lucy'
"Very interesting extended family this is, indeed.  You allude to the Thompsons, and it's perhaps apt to note that Teddy Thompson, Richard and Linda's son, is closely linked into the Wainwright/McGarrigle clan.  I saw he and…"

Ron Myhr commented on Kim Ruehl's blog post 'On Ancient History, Nickel Creek, and the Sometimes Necessary Genrefication of Music'
"Well, not really.  They were together for a while, but Jordan McConnell and Scott Senior (guitar and percussion respectively) dropped out but apparently stay friends.  Tania Elizabeth recorded part of the new album before snaring a major…"

Great music cheap!

I see that the music site is having a boxing-day sale, including a number of albums that have been featured here on ND.  It's only $4.44 for very good-quality (usually 320kbps) rips, $2 additional for full CD quality.  Paypal accepted. 

Includes Canadian artists like Rose Cousins, Amelia Curran, Ruth Minnikin, Kelly Joe Phelps, Jenn Grant, Whitehorse, Old Man Luedecke, Jim Bryson, Danny Michel, etc. 

A great chance to stock up on fine artists at a real discount, and…

Christmas Music 2012

Well, it's that time of year;  time to hear the repetitive sound of Christmas song schlock everywhere we go.  So let's have something of a corrective to that joy-destroying experience. 

What are your favorite worthy Christmas recordings, ones that you, the sophisticated rootsy populace, actually like to hear and to play during the holiday season?

I'll start with a few of mine, some new to me, others going back years.

First, and first only because it's old (and good,…

CD Review: "Kings and Queens" by Blackie and the Rodeo Kings

Male/female duets;  on the one side Emmylou Harris, Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Cassandra Wilson, Patti Scialfa, Serena Ryder, Amy Helm and sundry accomplished sisters;  on the other Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.  I was worried.



I've been a fan of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings for many years, and look forward to the new releases with eager anticipation.  I'd heard a duets…

CD Review: "Tell My Sister" by Kate & Anna McGarrigle


Kate & Anna McGarrigle are the iconic Canadian folk duo at the center (with many others) of the seventies folk revival.  Accomplished songwriters and wonderful performers, they were contemporary with (and influenced) the early careers of stars like Emmylou Harris, Maria Muldaur and Linda Ronstadt.  All performed their songs and used their harmonies;  Linda Ronstadt had a huge hit with Anna's "Heart Like a Wheel".  But no one did the McGarrigle's songs like the… Continue

Ron...Sloan Wainwright may not be a spring chicken but she IS younger than I am -- therefore: the "young lady" remark has no weird be-littling. Besides, even if I didn't know her age, her "truly affecting vocal style" -- as you put it -- doesn't make her sound as if she is that "elderly." If you know what I mean. Respectfully, John
