Routes & Branches 11/16/13

Aireene Espiritu from Oakland, California and The Hobos from the UK stopped by the KRVM studio this week and performed a couple of tunes before their show at the Axe & Fiddle. They are quite the interesting group who all met when Aireene was touring in Europe last year. Having a mutual appreciation for each other's music they joined forces touring now on both continents. It is so inspiring to hear young people from different parts of the world enjoying and creating new Americana music.

One of my other favorite road bands is going to be back in Eugene this coming Friday. Even after losing 2 of their original members last year, Band Of Heathens have a sound and groove that always satisfies my live music craving. Their new album 'Sunday Morning Record' has been compared with early Eagles, The Faces, The Band and even the Beatles. I started the with one of my favorite covers they do "Mississippi Halfstep" which I think they do as well as the Dead ever did. What ever they play it is always a good time.
