Time As We Know It: The Songs of Jerry Jeff Walker
For Todd Snider, Jerry Jeff Walker looms larger than a mere musical hero. When Snider first relocated to Austin in the early '90s, Walker was the first singer/songwriter that Snider witnessed in the city's club scene, showing Snider by example he didn't necessarily require a band to achieve his musical goals. Somewhere along the line, Snider even camped out on Walker's sofa for a few months. Given their longstanding professional and personal connection, there can be little »»»
"Some of this trouble just finds me," sings journeyman folk singer/troubadour Todd Snider on Greencastle Blues, the opening track of this career-spanning live collection, and that about sums up the kind of things that either happened directly to him or the characters that populate his songs, a distinction that's blurred more often than not.
There's a full band backing Snider throughout, which adds some heft musically but it's mostly unnecessary as the focus is more on »»»
The Excitement Plan
It would be easy to assume that using a well-known producer like Don Was was meant to bring about a slicker, more refined Todd Snider, one with some of the rough edges burnished off. But Was takes a different tack, capturing the loose, easy going feeling of a live show. It's a vibe that suits Snider's story-telling, troubadour style. The minimal instrumentation never gets in the way of lyrics that ruminate on an oddball collection of misfits and outcasts.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Guthrie brings welcome vibe of sweetness
Before launching into "This Land is Your Land," Arlo Guthrie recalled how his father taught him this song when he was just eight or nine. His father, however, wasn't just any father, but the father of protest folk music, Woody Guthrie. Then when Arlo's daughter, Sarah Lee Guthrie, took the stage midway through the first half of the... »»»

Sean McConnell may have left Massachusetts a good 25 years ago, but there was no doubt about what this night meant to him. This was a homecoming for the Nashville-based singer/songwriter. His parents, who moved back to the Bay State from Georgia, other family and folks he said he hadn't seen since he moved, were in the house of the small club.... »»»
