Once again, I am back with another Morning Music Shuffle!
I was a little under the weather - so no shuffle yesterday....
So, here is a recap of some live music I experienced since the last post:
Friday - After venue hopping on Thursday, I decided to stay put in one place (not that there weren't ample opportunities to venue hop), and it was nice because there was so much great music in one spot (Bobby's Idle Hour). Three rounds of three singer-songwriters featuring: Round 1: Joe Nolan, Renee Wahl, and Daryl Dasher; Round 2: Jeremy Nash, Lindsay Ellyn, and Sadie Hart; Round 3: Jeremy Staubus, Lori Kelley, and Lori's sister Michelle Nielson (in town from Iceland).
Saturday - Another one venue night (Douglas Corner) for Charlie Whitten (who has been featured on E2TG), Richie Owens and the Farm Bureau, and Ted Drozdowski's Scissormen.
Two wonderful night's of music with wonderful company at two venerable Nashville institutions.
#ICYMI: The WXNA Radio Show that I am hosting with Sue Havlish, Double Shot with Joe and Sue, has a Facebook Page for you to like. After you "Like" that page (if you want to), it might be a good time to double check to make sure you have liked the Ear to the Ground Facebook page (link up top). Hope to be able to announce the date of our first show, soon.
Now to the shuffle:
"My City" by Zachariah Red
E2TG Favorite, Zachariah Red kicks off today's shuffle with the opening track from his album Backbone. A rocking tune to kick off my first work day of the week.
"Shortnin' Bread" by Neal Pattman
The late great Blues musician Neal "Big Daddy" Pattman via the Music Makers Relief Foundation. A wonderful organization that supports many wonderful music artists in many ways while also preserving the music for countless generations to come.
"Pipeline" by Agent Orange
We have been playing quite a bit of surf rock in recent months - here is a punk rock cover of an early surf rock song (originally recorded by The Chantays back in 1962). Agent Orange are a long running punk band from Orange County, California.
"When I Was Just A Boy" by Carolina Story
The Nashville-based duo Carolina Story are up next with a beautiful song from their EP Chapter 2.
"Oh My Sweet Cantankerous Baby" by Leland Sundries
Next a live version of one of my favorite songs by the Brooklyn Indie band Leland Sundries. Connection alert: Nick Loss-Eaton of Leland Sundries is also a Board Member at Music Maker Relief Foundation which you may recall put out the Neal Pattman song way back, three whole songs ago.
"Rockin' Chair" by Paul Zografi
Bright came out back in 2014, but we didn't "discover" it until part way through 2015. Hence, Zografi winning one of the coveted "Better Late Than Never" "Earie" awards. Here is another great tune from that album.
"Open Passageways" by All Them Witches
We close out this shuffle with a song from Dying Surfer Meets His Maker - the latest album from this Nashville band.
