Routes & Branches 3/7/15

Well when I looking up my birthday notes I noticed that today was Townes Van Zandt's birthday, so he became my featured artist for today's show. I'm not sure when I started listening to Townes, probably around the same time I started listening to Steve Earle, which was so long ago that I couldn't put a date on it. My favorite recording of Townes is actually one in which he shares the stage with Earle and Guy Clark. Recorded in September of '95 Together At the Bluebird CafĂ© was a benefit organized by Susanna Clark (Clark's wife) as a benefit for the Interfaith Dental Clinic of  Nashville of which Townes had benefited from because of loosing a gold tooth which he mentions during the show. A great recording of three songwriters and friends.
