    in Music

    LA-based The Walcotts play high octane “Bluegrass, country  and folk rock that makes people shout, clap and dance   A standout in the crowded LA music scene , they are the essence of West Coast Americana music  that melds country, blues, folk, gospel, jazz and rock in live shows that sell-out and blow fans away.  They are slowly releasing recorded versions of their power-packed live music and we will be playing cuts from their new sampler album.


    Melbourne-based Hamish Anderson is a blues powerhouse who at 23 years old, toured the world with the late B.B. King after recording his self-titled first EP with Eric J. Dubowsky (Weezer), Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters) and bass player Rob Calder (Kanye West).  His second EP, Restless, was produced in Los Angeles with Krish Sharma (Rolling Stones, Counting Crowes)  and released this October. The single “Burn”  got rave reviews and wide play in Australia.  He is bringing his electrifying blues-soaked rock and modern roots songs back to the US this month and we get to talk with him.

    Bluegrass Gospel Music has an appeal to the young and old alike,it is a special quailty of instruments and voices that blend in perfect harmony with each other. It started out as country gospel music, but there was more to it than that it had to be fine tuned, and Bill Monroe added that touch that was the spring board for this music,the instruments and that special touch by Dr.Ralph Stanley known as the high lonesome sound is Bluegrass Music and Bluegrass Gospel at it's best.


    SO SWEET THE SONG IN MY HEART,THAT LIFTS MY SPIRIT HIGH,FOR FROM IT'S GIFTS,AS HEAVEN LIFTS AND MAKES THE ANGELS SIGH.


    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF THE BLUEGRASS GOSPEL FANS AROUND THE WORLD.
