Note from Host: This will be my 65th Birthday and I can't think of a better way to celebrate this landmark than with my fellow lover's of great songs.
I have a request that you bring a canned food item or dried good or even dried milk to be distributed to an Hispanic family in need, if you feel so inclined.
My Church, Trinity Episcopal, also the home of Iron Gate Ministry, has started a separate ministry to deliver food to specific families that have come to our attention as in need of help, due to having their primary bread winner deported. These are families that have children and have been in the country awhile now. Their children speak fluent English and most were born here.
The mothers and grandmothers are fearful of leaving the house, except to go to their jobs. They are afraid, even to show up at Iron Gate ministry for food, due to the threat of deportation.
Greg Jacobs "A Little Rain Will Do" Live at the Blue Door
Some call Jacobs the red dirt crooner because of his easy goin’ style, and that just might be right. He is the smoothest of all the red dirt troubadours, laying down a solid Okie groove, on songs that are both historic and personal. As Thomas Conner wrote in the Tulsa World, “Jacobs is the sweet voice of Oklahoma “Red Dirt”-not quite the grievous angel, but maybe the mischievous angel”. Jacobs remains one of the more original of all singer/songwriters working in America today and more than most delivers on the promise of Woody Guthrie, who said ‘ all you can do is write what you see’.
John William Davis, Hamlet, Redux
John William Davis: "The first time I heard John William Davis it was his excellent CD Revelation Land. It's a collection of songs that range from the title cut, a Bruce Springsteen like rocker... to a clever, funny song about the south after the civil war called Yankee Town, that is reminiscent of Randy Newman's finest work. Then he writes a song like Brave New Christmas that sounds like it came out of New Orleans Rag/Jazz. Finally another one of my favorites off that record, Skeleton Man, is a story song with a smoky carnival like arrangement, that would be right at home next to a Tom Waits song.
He is an incredibly talented singer/songwriter, the kind of artist that, once you hear him, you are asking yourself, why is he not famous? Of course, on the up-side, if he were famous, I would not be able to present him to you in this intimate setting". :-) - Scott Aycock- Folk Salad Radio
