Routes and Branches Play List 7/26/08

Tim Little

This was another special week for me at KRVM. This week I had the opportunity to have a phone conversation with David Bromberg. David and I share some similarities in that we both have been away from the music scene for a number of years, me from radio and David from touring and making records.

David Bromberg went to school in Chicago to study violin making. In 2002 he moved to Wilmington, Delaware where he appraises violins as well as buying and selling violins. Since moving to Delaware he also became involved in the local music scene, and is now baking up his wife's group the Angel Band.

The Angel Band is a powerful female vocal group lead by David's wife Nancy Josephson who either wrote or co-wrote most of the songs on the new disc With Roots & Wings. Nancy is joined on vocals by Jen Schonwald and Kathleen Weber. Together they create amazing Harmony vocals. The Angel band is backed up by "chum" which is a version of David's quartet.

David Bromberg has also released a new disc of a remastered concert that his quartet performed in New York City in 1982. It is a powerful show in which the band is cookin' I'm looking forward to seeing David again this week in Portland.

I sure had a lot of fun last weekend broadcasting from the Blue Moon Stage of the Oregon Country Fair. I hope that all of our listeners enjoyed KRVM's live broadcast of the sounds from the fair. For me it was the highlight of my fair.

I started and ended this week's Routes & Branches with John Hiatt, since his new disc has made it to the top of the Americana charts for the past 2 weeks. Hayes Carll is still at the #2 slot with Alejandro Escovedo challenging the top at #3. You will find all three of these artists on this week's playlist along with the usual mix of old and new Americana.

Routes and Branches Play List 7/05/08

Routes and Branches took a preview trip out to The Oregon Country Fair this week. KRVM will be broadcasting "LIVE" from the Blue Moon Stage of the Oregon Country Fair next week end July 11th -13th. Check the website for more details about our live broadcast from the fair. The Americana artists at the fair tend a little more to the acoustic folk music side, but there are some artists like David Jacobs-Strain, The Sugar Beets and the Renegade Saints that are stretching out into the blues and rock side of Americana.

At the end of my show I featured some other artists coming to the area including The Yonder Mountain String Band, Los Los Lonely Boys, and Los Lobos. I finished the show with Willie Nelson and a couple of vintage tracks from his new album Stardust.

So Far I'm not sure how many of my listeners check out this blog. But, if you have a comment about my show, this is the place to let me know what you think. I will be taking a break from the weekly blog next week. If you are at the fair next weekend, you can find me at the Blue Moon Stage on Saturday afternoon or at booth #2. Have a happy fair.
