So are YOU single like me? Are you having NO PLANS for Valentine’s Day (Not like me)?
Well then I got the news for you, Hey don’t I always bring some great news to the table?
Well I’m writing a few articles here at once and one I’m writing is for The Yonder Mountain String Band because they are coming to my area. But here’s some news about a former member that will be playing Feb 14th in the Columbus Ohio area.
Jeff Austin will be headlining an Ohio event that is brought to you by Duck Creek Log Jam. Folks I been watching this organization for some time now and I’ll be writing an article for them on my festival series SOON. I cannot make the Log Jam this year because I’ll be in Wisconsin tending to other business but they ARE ON my radar and I’ll be there…perhaps in 2016.
He is one of the founding members of The Yonder Mountain String Band and released a slew of albums with them since 1999. He left the band in 2014 citing creative differences and the split was acknowledged by both parties. This mandolin Wizard has recently released a solo album called “The Simple Truth” on Yep Roc Records. I’m understanding this album features Cody Dickinson From North Mississippi All Stars as well..I’m interested.
Another band I been checking out quite a bit lately are these boys The Hocking River String Band. Their new album called “Red Tailed Hawk Squawk” is quite impressiveand It’s on my “to purchase” list. They have two albums out now and their other one is called “Down River”. They have not been around as long as many bands but I like their sound.They are a very good band and you can trust my judgement on this one.
The Park Street Saloon in Columbus Ohio is where YOU need to be for great music on Valentine’s Day if you live in the Ohio area. And tell them I sent you.
