Jesse McReynolds visits Music City Roots

Every Wednesday night Music City Roots broadcasts their live radio show from the Barn at the Loveless Café in Nashville. On December 1 they reached out to heroes of Bluegrass past and came up with Jesse McReynolds and JD Crowe to fill out their lineup. Rounding out the show was Donna Ulisee and Folk Soul Revival. Of special note Jesse and host Jim Lauderdale had both spent time with Robert Hunter, the lyric master of the Grateful Dead composing songs. Jesse has just recorded a new CD, a tribute to the songs of the Grateful Dead and showed the crowd just how good he did on it to tremendous applause.

The Hobo Reunion

Railroad Earth and their fan base returned to The Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg Pa. They have been calling this home for their last 4 annual Thanksgiving weekend shows. Bring in fans from as far as California it is like a big family reunion. Opening the weekend was a band named Miz. Miz has a brand new line-up and is from the Scranton Pa. area. Keep an eye out for this band as they will be by you sometime in the future. The biggest surprise of the weekend was Railroad Earth's bold move to play it's newly released self titled cd "Railroad Earth" in its' entirety during it's first set on Saturday. They had 10 people on hand video recording and photographing it and will be making a video of the show. They will then be putting the video on their website for a free download.
