Another one of my musical heroes joined the heavenly band this week with the passing of Guy Clark. It is times like this that I am so thankful for recorded music. Especially recordings of live performances. I really enjoy seeing the musicians I play perform live and I go to see them as often as I can, but when they are gone, I really appreciate the recordings I have. The music can live on!!!
The following is my tribute to Guy Clark along with some new music and folks coming to town.

Routes & Branches 4/9/16

Portland band Fruition stopped by KRVM this afternoon on their way to a show tonight at the Hi-Fi Music Hall here in Eugene. Their new CD Labor Of Love is all of that, a labor of love, that they took time to produce over the past year. I have been listening to Fruition for several years now and their sound is evolving from  their roots as street musicians playing a lot of folk and bluegrass music to a full band with drums and electric instruments. Some of the songs on the new album are all electric and sound more like a rock band than a bluegrass band. All part of trying to diversify their sound says Jay Anderson. It will be interesting to see where they go from here.

On a sadder note; we lost one of my Americana heroes this week with the passing of Merle Haggard. I can remember back in high school listening to Haggard and Jerry Jeff Walker when I was looking for a country sound. I'm glad that I took the opportunity to see Haggard a few years back when he came through Oregon. Merle you will be missed.
