Routes and Branches Play List 10/22/11

The Far West Folk alliance conference has attracted the attention of our Acoustic Junction DJ's this weekend so I had lots of room to spread out and play some long tracks and some tracks that I would not play on Routes and Branches.I started by featuring artists who had won awards recently from the Americana Music Association, followed by several tracks of both national and local female artists. I then played some seasonal music from Southern Culture On The Skids and Kasey Anderson followed by a set about Hurricanes and high water in New Orleans.

The highlight of my first acoustic hour was playing one of my favorite classical jazz guitar albums "Friday Night In San Francisco" featuring the amazing guitar playing of Al DiMeola, John McLaughlin,and Paco DeLucia. Although I am not what you call a big jazz listener, I find the intricate guitar work on this album to be absolutely incredible and it was my pleasure to turn listeners who called on to this music.

During my second hour of "Acoustic Junction" I had the pleasure of having David Nigel Lloyd into to the studio to tell some tales and sing some songs. Lloyd is a Celtic folk balladeer in the true sense, a quote on his website says "He sings of pumpkin kings, fairy queens, East African juju men, idiot presidents, divine drunkards, eternal wanderers, prisoners both great and small, and ancient Irish warriors in dusty oil towns. “A strongly individual musical and poetic mind is at work here” (beGlad, UK)." Lloyd is known for playing a variety of guitars with various tunings as well as his "Octar" which is an 8- stringed guitar, but set with the strings in pairs like a mandolin. It had a great sound on the song "The Poor Little Englishman".
