The Compass points to CJSR

Bless those folks at Compass Records. Not only have they sent me free CDs for the last couple years, but they've arranged interviews with Kevin Welch and Alison Brown for my special pre-Folk Fest radio show on July 31. Both artists appear at Edmonton's festival the following weekend.

Banjo wizard (and label founder) Alison Brown recently released a fine album, Stolen Moments, with amazing covers of Jimi Hendrix's Angel and Simon & Garfunkel's Homeward Bound (which features vocals from the Indigo Girls).

"Banjo on a Hendrix tune?" you might be asking. Well, it's just one of those things you have to hear to understand.

I've already talked in an earlier post about the great album Kevin Welch released last year with co-Dead Reckoners Kieran Kane and Fats Kaplan. All I can add is that it's one show you won't want to miss.
