Routes and Branches Play List 9/05/09

I started today's show with Sonny Landreth who performed last night at our Eugene Celebration. His amazing slide guitar work is as great to watch as it is to listen to.
Other than that today's theme in honor of the Labor Day weekend was mostly focused on the working man songs that are common in Americana music. I'm sure that this theme will become a regular for me and I hope to add to my collection of songs each year. This year's list includes several new songs like Sam Baker's "Cotton", Nanci Griffiths' "Cotton's All We Got" and Levon Helm's "Growin' Trade".
I finished the show with a couple of acts that I will be hosting on Sunday's Live broadcast of the Broadway Stage of the Eugene Celebration, Hillstomp and Hot Buttered Rum. See You at The Celebration!!
