Routes & Branches 7/15/17

It is summer time which means music festivals are happening every weekend. I had a great time last weekend out at the Oregon Country Fair. I caught some of my favorites and missed a lot of others that I know were also very good. This weekend is another great festival, The Northwest String Summit. I finished out the show today with some of the bands playing there this weekend for those of us who didn't make it.
Speaking of live music, the 2 new albums that I am enjoying most this week are: Sonny Landreth's "Recorded In Lafayette" and Joe Bonamassa's "Live At Carnegie Hall: An Acoustic Evening". Both are incredible performances by seasoned musicians at the top of their career.

Local band Whopner County stopped by the KRVM studios this afternoon on their way to a CD release party at Sam Bond's Brewing. Even after loosing two members of the band several years ago, they have decided to record some songs that had been written back when they were the Whopner County Country Allstars but had never been recorded. Having dropped the Country Allstars part of the name they are looking expand their sound to other genres. It's good to see Whopner County playing back in local taverns!!!

A busy show this week.  I had The Dustbowl Revival stop by the station and play a couple of tracks from their soon to be released self-titled album.

I also played so Jimmy LaFave and Allman Brothers tunes to honor the recent passing of LaFave and Greg Allman. And on top of that we started our summer membership drive this week.
