Anyone who hasn't checked out Kane, Kaplan and Welch should probably do so as soon as possible. Outstanding!



This Youtube video only hints at how good their CDs sound.

Interesting...hadn't heard of them before.

Ironically, the singer's voice and inflection on the song Mr. Bones sounds a LOT like T-Bone Burnett

That was good, thanks.  The song incites dance urges, and I'm dancephobic.

The (is it a?) bazouki player is real good.  Does he play that thing on every song?  It's a nice signature sound for K, K and W, but might be a bit much if overused.  The guitar laying on its side with the headstock so close to the guitar player's left foot makes me nervous.

Fats Kaplan is a multi-instrumentalist playing guitar, slide, accordion, fiddle, mandolin and other stringed things. Keiran Kane, also a multi-instrument dude, used to play with the O'Kanes and Kevin Welch plays guitars and sings. All three of their CDs are very good. I can't recommend them too highly. Also check out David Francey's The Waking Hour. KKW back him up on it and it is fine.

Thanks Ducktrapper,  I've checked out a few of the you-tube clips and found them to be very entertaining.  Will look for some more of their stuff.  I suppose it's available on good old eyetunes.   

Watching them makes me want to just sit in the background and strum along.

I've been listening to "The Road to Escondido" a bunch.  It's the perfect biking at the beach music for California.....for some reason JJ and Eric just go together.....

I've started to get into this guy named "eric clapton".  He seems pretty good.  Don't know if any of you have heard of him before

Love DBT. The Jason Isbell solo CD is pretty good too. I'm interested in Patterson Hood's.

I think the jury's still out on him. Time will tell, but his early album 461 Ocean Blvd was very tastefully done.

But to answer the thread question, I just discovered Horace Andy, the Jamaican reggae/dub artist. Dance Hall Style is a masterpiece.

Really enjoying a lot of Buddy Miller (solo), and Buddy & Julie Miller.  Got the new Band of Horses CD, but not sold on them yet.  Agree with everybody here about DBT's The Big To Do.

Band of Horses' 2006 release Everything All the Time is my go-to record.  The new one isn't bad but it's definitely growing on me.

I'm not sure if this really counts, as I haven't bought a CD yet, but I saw some amazing acoustic playing by Gary Lucas on youtube this morning. I was vaguely aware of him through his work in the Magic Band , and Jeff Buckley, but the solo stuff I heard today has my interest piqued.

I discovered a Scottish artist called Alan Frew recently. His album 'Go Easy' is excellent. Mostly acoustic, and at that mostly nylon string, but played rather more like a traditional steel string.

Check out the title track if you can, it's brilliant.

Well worth a punt on iTunes if you are looking for something new.

Thanks Blastersfan,  "Written in Chalk" is sounding really good to me.  I hadn't heard Buddy before...

Any Eels fans out there?  What do you think of "End Times"?
I'm permanently hooked on "Blinking Lights"...

MONTE MONTGOMERY!
Not only does he make an acoustic (electric) Alvarez nearly explode under his technique but  he is a great songwriter with a good voice and a live show that measures something around 7.2 on the Richter scale:

If this were all he did it would be pretty astounding, but there is much more to him.
Stopped in my tracks by his guitar, but stuck around for the whole musician/troubadour package.

Norman Blake.

The guy just makes it sound so easy.  Really nice touch!

Whiskey before breakfast will never be left off any Ipod I own.

But this last year I got into Mike Dowling.  Kind of a mixture of Bob Brozman and Chet Atkins.  Superb talent and impeccable taste. Never overplays (to my ear).  http://www.mikedowling.com/

Larry Pattis and Muriel Anderson are well worth listening to (and learning from). I bought CDs from each of them online, and each of them sent me sheet music (with tabs) for several of their songs. Check out Muriel's version of the "Peanuts Theme" on Heartstrings.

By the way, Larry plays a Larrivee Parlor.
