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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
