I recently had a chance to talk with one of my guitar heroes Warren Haynes. Haynes will be in Eugene this next week with his band Gov't Mule and John Scofield. They are touring behind the new Sco-Mule album which was recorded 20 years ago with the original Gov't Mule line-up of Haynes, Woody and Abts. Naturally this album is more jazz oriented than other Mule albums with the influences that Scofield brings to the group.
Although I am a fan of Gov't Mule no matter what music they play, I am most found of Haynes work the Allman Brother's band and Phil Lesh & Friends. I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that he got his start playing in David Allen Coe's band back in the '80s.
Also part of today's show I played Rosanne Cash's Grammy wining song, A Feather's Not A Bird off her Grammy wining album The River & The Thread and Old Crow Medicine Show's album Remedy which picked up the Grammy for Best Folk album. The Blackberry Bushes and The Mastersons will both be in Eugene this week so I played them as well.
