Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Day 2
The brainchild of Matthew Logan Vasquez, Glorietta was born out of a desire to
collaborate with friends that Vasquez has collected over the last ten years.
Those friends include; Noah Gundersen, Kelsey Wilson, David Ramirez, Adrian
Quesada, and Jason Blum. They came together over the course of nine-day recording
session in Glorieta, NM. The players were all connected in one-way or another,
some of them old friends, some of them meeting for the first time. The days were
long with the tape running constantly as the players brought ideas for songs in
various stages of completion to their new family of collaborators. Midway through
the sessions the group was joined by a guest appearance from Nathaniel Rateliff.
The result is a debut record; a beautiful mix of voices from six band leaders that
fit perfectly together. Their self-titled album will be available everywhere summer
HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF
It had been a successful, if tumultuous, ride for Alynda Segarra, who�s been
spreading a new kind of roots-conscious folk music across the country from her
adopted hometown of New Orleans. But as far as the Bronx native had come with
her band, Hurray For The Riff Raff, there was still a missing link to her story.
Segarra became the willing vessel for a character she calls �The Navigator,� from
which her new album takes its name. Through The Navigator, the listener hears an
ambitiously interwoven, cinematic story of a wandering soul that finally realized
she needed to connect with and honor her ancestors.
Born in Houston in 1950, Rodney Crowell has released twenty albums in four decades,
with five consecutive number-one hits, and has also worked widely as a songwriter
and a producer. His honors include a Grammy, an ASCAP lifetime achievement award,
and membership in the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He lives in Nashville.
The group began in 1970, when school friends, Butch Hancock, Joe Ely, and Jimmie Dale
Gilmore all found themselves back in Lubbock, TX after having spent time in San Francisco,
Europe and Austin respectively. They roomed together and began playing together with
various other local musicians drifting in and out of the lineup. The group had a brief
run from 1972-73, but when the individual members found success in their solo careers,
interest in The Flatlanders was rekindled with the band reuniting several times since.
These three key members, went on to become Texas� most respected singer/songwriters.
STEVE EARLE & THE DUKES
If you ever had any doubt about where Steve Earle�s musical roots are planted, his new
collection So You Wannabe An Outlaw, makes it perfectly plain. �There�s nothing retro about
this record� he states, �I�m just acknowledging where I�m coming from.� This is the first
recording he�s done in Austin, TX, since living in NYC for the past decade.
