Routes and Branches Play List 04/25/09

This week I had the pleasure of having Chuckanut Drive into the studio for a live performance. They are an Alt. Country band now mostly from the Seattle area except for founding member and song writer for the band, Steve Leslie who still lives on Bellingham which has a road in the area that the band takes their name from. They played a live version of "Kick In Your Door" from their recent album Fidelity Grange and a tune called "Doctor". I compared their song "Becky and Bobby" as a cross between Robert Earl Keen and Wilco. Steve said he liked that comparison and that he is also influence by artists like Dylan and John Prine among others.
Saturday evening was also very special for me with James McMurtry playing in town. He played a great show of many of his classic songs from his recent album "Just Us Kids" to his original album "Too Long In The Waste Land". His band mates the Heartless Bastards with Daren on drums and Ronnie on bass were along for the show, while Tim Holt the other guitarist for the band was on another tour doing sound for The Flatlanders. Without Tim in the mix James says he has to do more with his own guitar playing, which I must say, was very good last night.
