Yes, I know you are all probably tired of hearing me yap about the Muddy Roots Festival coming up this weekend, but now there is a way for ALL of us to participate, whether we make it out there or not.
The Festival, in conjunction with thealternateroot.com has released a FREE compilation of music from performing artists. Now nothing is probably ever going to live up to the Outlaw Radio Chicago Compilation, but this is a good way to wet your whistle for the Festival, or live vicariously through your stereo if your one of the poor bastards like me that can’t make it out there.
The compilation includes previously released music from headliners Wayne “The Train” Hancock, Billy Joe Shaver, as well as The Sawyer Family, Ten Foot Polecats, Pearls Mahone, Husky Burnette, and many others.
It can be downloaded by CLICKING HERE and navigating to the bottom of the page. There’s also a player there where you can listen to all the music.
Also been enjoying listening to the Our Name’s On This One Compilation from ninebullets.net. Joe Pug, .357 String Band, Ray Wylie Hubbard, good stuff.
