The Howlin' Brothers have a great roots sound drawing inspiration from artists like John Hartford, Doc Watson and Mississippi John Hurt. Originally from Ithaca, New York, the Howlin' Brothers now call Nashville their home where they find plenty of inspiration from the regular old time jams that take place around town. Playing both original and traditional tunes, the Howlin' Brothers have a high energy performance that is sure to get you dancin'.
By going to the Howlin' Brothers show I was introduced to Whitey Morgan and the 78's, an Outlaw country rock band from Flint Michigan inspired by the likes of Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Needless to say, I was up a lot latter than I usually am.
For today's show I played the rest of my interview with Ryan Bingham that I recorded last week. Bingham is another one of those younger artists that I am enjoying watching perform. This time around he had a killer band, great lead guitar and a fiddle player that reminded me of Papa John Creach with his blazing leads.
Finally, I am looking forward to seeing James McMurtry this next week so I had to play a few more tunes to just get ready. I am also looking forward to seeing the opening band for this show, a band from Portland called Denver that I recently heard about from my friend Lewi Longmire who will be playing guitar for them on this tour with McMurtry.
