Routes and Branches Play List 11/15/08

This week's show featured an in studio appearance of three members of The Bridge, Cris Jacobs (Guitar), Kenny Liner (Mandolin), and Dave Markowitzt (Bass). Cris and Kenny are the founding members and primary song writers of The Bridge and have been playing together for about 7 years. Their New Album "Blind Man's Hill" they say is the best representation of their efforts of putting a band together. I must say that they sounded great in the studio as well as on stage.

Routes and Branches Play List 11/08/08

I started and ended this week's show with a new group called The Bridge.
The Bridge is a unique rock band from Baltimore whose music combines elements of blues and roots, spiced with funk and soul. They have recently become known coast-to-coast, and even in Europe, for their gritty and grand live performances and poignantly hand crafted albums. Following in the tradition of classic / southern roots rock, and flavoring their sound with Americana sensibilities, the band has built their own niche between the jam, country, and bluegrass genres.

The Bridge will be performing at the Fenario Gallery this coming Friday and Saturday nights. Tune into KRVM's Routes and Branches Saturday afternoon for a live in studio performance.

Other good shows to catch this week, both at the McDonald Theater, are Old Crow Medicine Show on Tuesday and Keller Williams on Thursday.
