I first need to make a correction: It is indeed Ralph Stanley playing at The Shedd on the 17th. I for some reason thought it was his son (who will be playing with him), because I thought the man died 6 months ago. Seeing how it would be interesting news to Mr. Stanley that he is dead, I apologize and promise to stop smokin' crack.
Onto music: got a million calls about the bluegrass version of Bob Seger. The entire album is Seger covers, and they're all great. The band is Cornbread Red. Two other great finds this week are Phantom Puercos from The Netherlands and the guy a cabbie in Austin told me to go see: Jonathan Terrell. The CD Terrell gave me was self burned so I don't have a album or song title, I did however find him on Itunes and will playing some of those songs in the weeks to come.
Until next week...
