A great video on an artist you may not be aware of. Participants include Elvis Costello.


Whether you know of Jim Lauderdale or not, you will be very glad you watched this. You gotta trust me on this! 😉




In my view (and only that) he's not in the class of those you compare him to here.  Especially JDG, and of course the late-great.



And Iris DeMent. She’s coming back to town in a coupla months, get to see & hear her live again.

Iris was John Prine’s favorite collaborator.


I saw him more than a few times at Merlefest, Magnolia fest, Suwanee, and others often with Donna The Buffalo or others.

@wharfy I would add Darrell Scott and Tim O'Brien to the list also.

Damn I loved Guy Clark.
