“It Makes Sense to Me” – new recording

DSC04758Hi Ya’ll ~

And thanks, from Jean, Jeff, and myself, to everyone who came out to our performance yesterday at Yankee Creek Coffee House. You were a great audience.

“Makes Sense to Me” is an original.  It’s fairly new and rarely played out, and this is our first released recording – a live, single-track.  My blessing to all the world.

 

We got a few other recordings we’re happy with – though for some reason Jeff’s bass was faint – not in performance, just in the recording.  Where’s the sound engineer when you need them?

Enjoy!

Silver City Acoustic with Phil and Mary Brown and the Latchkey Kids!

1798535_10152637078790031_1723685138_nThis week’s guests will be, in the first hour, Phil and Mary Brown, formerly of “The Oversouls,” and in the second hour the “Latchkey Kids.”

Long-time musical heroes in Silver City, Phil and Mary Brown anchored the popular Oversouls until recently, when Phil and Mary decided to pursue a new musical sound.  They’ll play some new and original acoustic music for us, talk about the process of songwriting, their Oversouls CD, and “The April-May Project”!

We’re looking forward to hearing all about the new music flowing through!

The Latchkey Kids have been playing around town for a few years now, the band consisting of James “Skippy” Sanders, Daniel Eady, Sam Yarborough, and  Alex Hallwyler.

They have an (unusual for them) all-acoustic set planned to share with us, along with stories about how they came together and where they’re going next.

So tune in and tune up!

KURU 89.1 FM, 6-8 pm MST (or a quarter after 6 or so)

or stream it live at GMCR.org.

Andrew Dahl-Bredine and Don Beams et al Great Guests!

Andrew in studio

Had a great time last Thursday on my third “Silver City Acoustic” show!  Andrew Dahl-Bredine played music from Africa, Brazil, and his own original work, one flavored with Zimbabwean elements, a couple children’s songs (singing with stars in our mouths!  yes!), and another, titled “Campfire,” which won him the “Best Songwriter of the Year” award at the Tucson Folk Festival in 2011.

We’re wishing Andrew the best on his upcoming CD release – later this week!  Watch for it!

We also had Don Beams on the show with his two new trio-mates, Becky Burnell on vocals and Bobby T on blues harp.  They impressed us with the most beautiful “divorce song” we ever heard! – an original by Don with beautiful harmonies – and much more.  Keep an ear out for these folks!

Thanks to all our listeners in the immediate 89.1 FM area, and thanks to all those listening on the web, GMCR.org!

Love the comments I’m getting!  Please send your comments to me via email at sca@gmcr.org.  I love to know who’s listening and what you think.

Also, regarding streaming from the archives after the show’s over – this option will only be possible, if we take the time to edit out any cover songs.  If anyone wants to volunteer, learn a new skill in the process, and just be part of a wonderful group of folks running your community radio, please let me know, and we’ll start building an archive that YOU can listen to anytime and even download as podcasts!  Powerful stuff!  Needs a volunteer.

Ana Egge & String Beans This Week!

Ana_Egge_Jack_Hirschorn_1-300x199So looking forward to hosting “Silver City Acoustic” this week!

In the first hour we’ll have Silver City’s Ana Egge – now residing in Brooklyn – in the studio, playing live and talking about her life and current album produced by Steve Earle.  Can’t wait to ask her about her sessions in Levon Helms’ studio in Woodstock, New York!  We might also learn about her growing up with three sisters and parents who “dropped out” and then started “Down to Earth School” here in Silver.  Ana has a huge, loyal following, so if you haven’t heard her yet, you must tune in.  And tell your friends!

“Ana is a somewhat best-kept secret of the music scene.” —Maïa Davies of Ladies of the Canyon

46690_10151423002226591_2059556652_nIn our second hour, we’ll visit with the Silver City String Beans – Skippy Sanders (mandolin, vocals), Martha Egnal (guitar, vocals), and Doug Smith (bass, vocals).  (Thomas Wentz, fiddle and vocals, is unfortunately out of town.)

Silver City is fortunate to have musicians like this, who also give so much else to the community in the way of healthy food and healthy living in particular – though most people know them best for their toe-tapping, foot-stomping  good time.  I’m honored to have them on the show.

So pull up your radio, turn it up, and get ready to stomp around in your kitchen or wherever you are!  Push back the tables!

KURU FM 89.1 from 6-8 this Thursday, January 23 – and every Thursday.  If you can’t tune in then, remember to check the archives for the show at GMCR.org.

Love and Peace,

Greg
