WE GO UNPLUGGED AS OUR THOUGHTS WING NORTHWARD
This morning we find ourselves thinking of back porches and non-amplified stages, acoustic music on the brain as this year's Northwest String Summit gets underway. Our faithful scribe Sarah Hagerman is on the scene to note the nitty 'n' the gritty for JamBase but we wanted to wing a 6-pack of twang speckled goodness to her, the rest of the Summit-ers and really anyone who likes a bit o' quirk with their pickin'.
This week's Playlist begins with the great U.K. outfit The Broken Family Band and an early love ditty from their catalog. Then, it's enduring folkie David Wilcox to tell us about hanging loose even when things splatter everywhere. That's followed by some hot, sweet licks from the latest Dan Hicks release, a gospel scorcher from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band from the second Will The Circle Be Unbroken collection and a genuine classic team up of Steve Earle and The Pogues. Lastly, it's newfangled space cowboy Devendra Banhart's salute to poultry.
