    Great start to the show and I’m really glad you do this thing! I wonder if one of these might be appropriate for the show. “The Trumpet Child” by Over the Rhine from the album of the same name or maybe “Blue” by Verve from A Storm In Heaven.

    I saw Junior Brown and Guy Forsyth at the Kessler Friday. I took my 12yr-old son and his friend. We all enjoyed it very much. Junior Brown is a musician’s musician and absolutely amazing on the guit-steel. Tearing picks apart on that thing. I found one that’s short enough to fit and still loaded with a bit of fancy fretwork.

    Great show – always interesting.
    A few suggestions: Paul Thorn – anything he does is good but I especially like listening to him play acoustic guitar and sing.
    Daniel Market – a singer / songwriter from Indiana. He has a talent for crafting some very personal and emotional songs. One of his albums is available on Amazon but I do have most of his albums if you are interested.
