    Mindy Smith: Snowed In. Jason Vanderford: Junk Parlor project

    in Music

    Mindy Smith, the iconic singer-songwriter who crosses genre lines with hits in country, pop, and alternative rock returns to Music Friday with her new Christmas EP, Snowed in.  Her career took off in 2003 when she was invited to contribute to a Dolly Parton tribute album by her label, Vanguard, and appeared with Dolly on national television.  She hasn't stopped since: she has produced five critically acclaimed and very successful albums and seven hit singles, one, Come to Jesus, which hit the Billbaord 40 at #32.  She is appearing at the Grand Ole Opry December 14 with Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell and we are delighted she is taking the time to talk with us this Friday at 2:05 pm ET.

    Jason Vanderford is an eclectic, entrepreneurial, jazz, rock and gypsy/cajón genius who assembles musical projects/albums/tours/bands, his latest being the Junk Parlor. Junk Parlou is gypsy rock - a combination of jazz, rock, 50's 4-4 beats and Vanderford's vocals ranging from smooth and low to hot and howling. Joining Jason are Jimmy Grant on the Django-infused lead electric guitar, drummer and cajón player Rt Goodrich,  and Tim Bush on the  electric fretless bass. The effect ranges from mad genius to pure  fun. Junk Parlor just wrapped up its Northwest tour with a final set of concerts in Seattle and will head to southern California right after Friday's show.  They join us at 2:30 pm ET

    Twisted South Radio welcomes Freddie Vanderford,The Kopecky Family and The Dirty Guv'nahs

    in Entertainment

    Growing up in Buffalo, SC, Vanderford first learned to play the harp from his grandfather. Initially, Vanderford blended the country style of his grandfather with the sound of the Chicago blues. One day on the way to school, however, Vanderford turned on the radio to hear Arthur “Peg Leg Sam” Jackson play the Piedmont Blues. Once the teenage Vanderford discovered that the blues harpist and former medicine show performer lived nearby, he set out to meet him, eventually developed a close relationship and learned something of Peg Leg Sam’s skills and his style.
    Like all families, Kopecky Family Band beats with the same heart and writes in the same blood. The Family began creating music together in Nashville, Tennessee in the Fall of 2007. What started as late night talks about life and dreams gradually flowed into eccentric and beautiful music that has propelled this band into the forefront of the fast-moving Nashville music scene.

    Leading the family are singers Gabe and Kelsey, along with Steven (lead guitar), Corey (bass), Markus (cello), Benjamin (violin), and David (drums). The emotion of their music is raw and vulnerable whilst maintaining an unmistakable power and presence. The sounds created by the booming and orchestral septet challenge the listener’s ear while still offering simply melodies to sing along with.
    The Dirty Guv’nahs new CD, Youth Is In Our Blood, produced by two-time Grammy-winner Justin Guip (Levon Helm, The Black Crowes) at Helm’s renowned barn/studio in Woodstock, NY is the follow-up to their eponymous 2009 debut. It is a hot, roiling stew of gritty, soul-influenced rock ‘n’ roll, mixed with a hefty helping of roots, funk, blues and country. It’s the sound that has earned them the distinction of being voted Knoxville’s Best Ban —three years in a row—by the readers of that city’s alternative weekly, Metro Pulse.

    In segment 2 we are joined by Robin Yukiko, a Pennsylvania-based eclectic pop and blues singer/songwriter and a music producer . Robin has  operatic and choral training and an international background.  She left her opera training to produce her debut album Me & My Apathy, an eclectic suite of 11 original songs.  She released a second album, “Love War” and performs locally, writes and produces songs for other bands  while keeping up with her new baby.  She will be on Music FridayLive! at 2:30 pm ET (perhaps with baby)

    Tanas, Rawls, Mill Billy Blues & 3 Generations Of Blues

    in Music

    Andy Tanas began as a sound tech for bands such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker and more before being convinced to let his bass do the talking.  He became the bass player ad songwriter for Black Oak Arkansas until they disbanded in 1980.  Since, Andy has continued to play and has released Songs From The New South, an album that features Cody Dickinson and others and took Andy 4 years to complete.  We will talk about his career and listen to SFTNS.
    Johnny Rawls learned his trade playing with stars such as ZZ Hill, Johnny Taylor and OV Wright before going out on his own. He has garnered many honors along the way and this year he has been nominated for Soul Blues Album Of The Year and Soul Blues Male Artist Of The Year.  I will chat with Johnny about his career while we listen to cuts from Soul Survivor.
    The Mill Billy Blues Band hail from South Carolina and their earliest influences were "front porch pickers", playing Piedmont style blues, bluegrass, country, and gospel music. Now singer/harmonica player Freddie Vanderford, regional bluesman Shane Pruitt, guitar whiz Brandon Turner, and singer/songwriter Matthew Knights make up Mill Billy Blues. Their debut is something special and we will chat about how they all came together.
    Papa Don McMinn is an historical figure in Memphis blues.  The genes do not lie as his son Doug is the drummer for the Reba Russell band, his son Rome is one of the top bass players in the mid-south, his daughter Lorina Rae McMinn has been singing forever and now, Doug's son Michael joins the family business blowing a harp like he has done for 50 years.
    All together they are Papa Don McMinn and The Three Generation Blues Band (3GB2) and they are releasing a new album and they are bringing it to the Couch to preview.
