Back in the saddle after a wild, wonderful President’s Day weekend. This week’s podcast features a terrific performance and interview with Bradford Loomis and Beth Whitney live in The Helm with host Eric Kotila.
Beth and Bradford were in Portland last week recording their new record, “The Banner Days,” the product of a successful crowd-funding campaign that has them crackling with creative electricity and confidence. You can hear it in their voices as they share some songs, talk about their influences and tell the backstory of how two great solo artists and friends came together to write and record the new record.
We couldn’t help but kickoff this week’s show with another tune from the awesome new Lydia Loveless LP, which hits the streets today. We also have new music from The Low Bones, whose captain, Joel Roth, will be our guest on next week’s show in advance of their big CD release show at Secret Society here in Portland.
We added in a bunch of cool stuff from some of our favorite troubadours and tons of local music including cuts from Jake Ray and the Cowdogs, Copper & Coal, Mike D., McDougall, The Delines, Truckstop Darlin’ and Countryside Ride.
