Routes and Branches Play List 03/26/11

This week I featured Buddy Miller's new album The Majestic Silver Strings. this is an excellent representation of what Americana music is today. As buddy says on the DVD that comes with the CD, "It just seemed natural, Mark, Me and Bill messing up old country songs. It just felt like a natural progression. You guys want to come over to the house and make a record". And that's what they did, set up in the living room and made a record. With some help from a number of guest artists including Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Patty Giffin, Lee Ann Womack, Ann McCrary and Marc Anthony Thompson helping out on the vocals, Buddy and crew put together a great album of covers from artists like Tex Owens, Lefty Frizzell, Roger Miller, Darrell Edwards and George Jones among others. Now that's Americana!!!

I had two other focus sets in the show, the first featuring the music of John Hiatt. We have a new show on KRVM called "In The Spotlight" (Monday's 9-10 pm.)which features a different artist each week and is hosted by different KRVM DJ's. I will be hosting the show on Monday, April 25th featuring John Hiatt and his many years of making music. Today's set was just a sampling of what I might play that evening.

The other focus set was a last minuet addition to the show featuring the music of Pinetop Perkins who passed away this week at the age of 97. One of the legendary Mississippi blues men Perkins had a major influence on today's American music. May he live on in his music.
