    My son, with musical tastes that range from Ray Wylie Hubbard to Greydon Square, introduced me to Shakey Graves this morning. Wow, what a talented guy. If you’re at all into that broad genre called Americana, check him out.

  2. Steve Towers Steve Towers says:

    Darn it, Hal—this post made me scroll up and down through your schedule up above, wondering how I missed when and where Shakey is playing this week.

    Matt Lorenz, who goes by the name “The Suitcase Junket,” recently played at the Vintage—similar vibe. His Mongolian throat singing is a trip.

    Another favorite of mine in this vein is Parker Millsap.

  3. Hal Johnson Hal Johnson says:

    Thanks for those, Steve. I’ll check them out.

    Reading about Shakey this morning, it appears that he hasn’t spent much time on the west coast.
    Sorry about that; I didn’t mean to be a tease.

    • Steve Towers Steve Towers says:

      We used to make semi-regular pilgrimages to Austin, where Shakey is from, just for the music scene (usually for the Austin City Limits festival). The center of the music we like most has now largely shifted to East Nashville—my daughter and her husband have been and loved it. The alternative to a Nashville trip is going on one of those music cruises that are jam packed with great acts—Cayamo or Outlaw Country—but the downside of that is that you’re stuck on a cruise ship for a week. “Jail with a chance of drowning,” someone said.

    You should check out Nathanial Raitliff… “Need Never Get Old”, a catchy neo-rock ‘n roll diddy will keep you moving.

  5. Dennis says:

    Here is that video… Their bluesy rockabilly sound is catchy.
