Routes and Branches Play List 04/7/12

I was totally impressed with James Low(from Portland) last weekend at Sam Bond's Garage. For a debut album "Whiskey Farmer" has everything I want from great lyrics to beautiful melodies. The James Low Western Front is a basic 4 piece band James Low: Acoustic Guitar, Dave Camp: Electric guitar, Tim Higgins: Bass and Joe Mengis: drums, but on the CD he has additional musicians including Rob Burger: Pump Organ, Ralph Huntley: Piano Lewi Longmire: Pump Organ and Hammond Organ, Paul Brainard: Pedal Steel, Dobro and Mike Coykendall:Percussion which add a lot to fill out the tunes.

Several birthdays to celebrate on the show this week including Merle Haggard, Emmylou Harris, Eilen Jewel,and Richard Thompson.
