For Labor Day weekend I focused on americana songs featuring the working man or woman. One of my focus discs was "Ribbon of Highway, Endless Skyway" the tribute album to Woody Guthrie by various artists including Jimmy LaFave, Eliza Gilkyson, Slaid Cleeves and Bob Childers as the narrator speaking the words of Woody. There are plenty of songs that would fit this show. Here are the ones that I picked.

This week culminated my recent contact with David Bromberg with a great show Friday night at the Aladdin Theater in Portland. The show featured both the Angel Band with their outstanding female vocals and the David Bromberg quartet. At on point David and his band mates Bobby Tangrea and Jeff Wisor were all 3 trying to light a fire with their mandolins. A great show that I always remember. I hope that it is not 27 something years before I get to see him again.
