I put a few more older tracks into the mix today for KRVM's winter pledge drive.

Routes & Branches 12/19/15

I had the pleasure of having Steep Ravine into the KRVM studio this afternoon. The bay area band was in Eugene touring behind their second album "The Pedestrian".
I had to go looking in our bluegrass collection to find this CD and I found that they may be based in bluegrass, but Steep Ravine is on the edge exploring new interpretations of jazz, folk and pop. They said that adding percussion to their instrumentation has opened them up to being more than just a string band and brings new opportunity for musical exploration. This is a band I'm going to keep listening to as long as they play.

Otherwise, I played a bunch of tunes I only play this time of year. Happy Holidays Y'all!!!
