Routes and Branches Play List 05/16/09

This week's show was a mix of emotions with several cuts in memory of artists and tour mates that have passed on within the past year or so to great new music put together by seasoned musicians. My feature disks this week both came from Dave Alvin who last year lost a dear friend and band mate, Chris Gaffney. Dave has produced a tribute album to Chris entitled "Man Of Somebody's Dreams" with artists from Joe Ely, Boz Scaggs, James McMurtry, Los Lobos and many others.
His other disc just out is called Dave Alvin and The Guilty Women. This CD came out of a group he put together for the 2008 Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival in San Fransico. The Guilty Women are; Christy McWilson, Cindy Cashdollar, Nina Gerber, Laurie Lewis, Amy Farris, Sarah Brown, and Lisa Pankratz. This is another great Dave Alvin CD. It is well balanced with some of Dave's old favorites done a new way to soulful cuts featuring the women.

I also want to send out my condolences to Willie Nelson for the loss of his stage manager Poodie Locke last week. Thank you Poodie for helping Willie play all of those great shows.
