A number of new albums this week.
Drew Emmitt (Leftover Salmon & Drew Emmitt Band) teamed up with Bill Nershi (String Cheese Incident) to put together a new band which includes Andy Thorn on Banjo and Tyler Grant on Bass. Emmitt and Nershi had crossed paths several times over the years with their former bands and always wanted to play together but never found the time until this year. Their new CD " New Country Blues" is full great new songs.
Pert' Near Sandstone is high octane string band from Minneapolis and St. Paul. Their new album "Needle And Thread" is a mix of original and Traditional tunes trying to revitalize the American stringband tradition. Pert' Near Sandstone will be in Eugene at Sam Bond's Garage on Friday, Oct. 9th.
Chris Smither has a great way of telling stories with his songs and his new CD "Time Stands Still" is just as good as ever.
Other new discs this week include: "Before The Frost" by the Black Crows, "Walk" by Red Rooster, "Be Set Free" by Langhorn Slim and a self titled CD by Todd Adelman & The Love Handles. I really like the Todd Adelman album a lot. They have a great Honky Tonk sound.
