Routes and Branches Play List 08/27/11

I had Shoebox Letters a band from Portland into the studio this afternoon to play some live music on the radio. The have a classic Americana/singer/songwriter groove and it was a pleasure to have them stop by and play us a few of their tunes. Dennis Winslow creates interesting songs which tell stories of life as he sees it. Their sound has a warm inviting feel with lovely harmonies.

This is also the weekend of our big downtown block party called the Eugene Celebration. I spent most of the first hour this afternoon featuring artists who have played or are going to play at the Celebration this year. I am looking forward to many of the acts that are scheduled to perform on Sunday including The Stagger & Sway, The Whopner County Country Allstars, Poor Man's Whiskey and Dave Alvin. It will be interesting to see who Dave Alvin has touring with him this time around. He's calling the band "The Guilty Ones" leaving the genders of the band out this time around.

It's a fun weekend and I hope that all of my listeners found some live music to enjoy, I know I have.
