CD: SARA SENNERT Moving Melodies


SARA SENNERT
Moving Melodies
 
Less Of Me - On The Wings Of A Dove - It'll Come Back - His Story - Far Side Banks Of Jordan - Let It Be - Try A Little Kindness - In The Garden - The Hand That Rocks The Cradle - Save A Little Place For Me
 
I have always been captivated by upper Midwest vocalists that take their 'gift' of music wherever it will take them.  Sara Sennert had an amazing experience that led her to not only sing, but to write about, a homeless man in a car.  The song is "His Story" and is a true experience.  Sara and her family were leaving the WalMart the day after Christmas, and parked next to them was a man sitting in his car.  I'll let Sara tell the story.  "It was so sad as I studied him and his car full of things.  Obviously he wasn't waiting for anyone, he was in his 'home' soaking up some winter sun.  This memory would not leave me and a couple weeks later I wrote this song.  This entire gospel CD is my way of spreading the message for people to pray for the homeless.  It's my prayer to those living on the river banks, in their cars, on city streets, under the bridges and wherever they find shelter."  Sara's right on the mark about the homeless.  It's so strange we have this in such a 'rich' country.  I'm also very impressed with the entire musical backing by Dave Russell at the North 40 Studios.  The production and engineering is super.  I especially enjoyed the steel on Terry Smith's "Far Side Banks of Jordan."  Country all the way, classic and traditional just the way I like it.  Sara Sennert has been in the world of CD production with several other CD's, and this time she has certainly provided us, the listener, with a wonderful new treat.  For those of you who might recognize her name, you know she is the daughter of the Singing Farmer, Ervin Pickhinke, another of our stalwart 'real' country singers in the upper Midwest.  Sara recorded "Living Country" with her dad.  This one goes to the Rural Roots Music Commission for their appraisal of this fine 'real' country offering.  psennert@knology.net

CD: HILARY SCOTT Flowers On Mars


HILARY SCOTT
Flowers On Mars
 
Flowers On Mars - Help - Get Your Love - Sacrifice
 
This is only a four-song CD demonstrating the lovely folk-style voice of Hilary Scott.  Hilary is a keyboardist, utilizing piano and organ equally well, blending those sounds together, especially nice on the first song, self penned "Flowers on Mars."  Keyboards can provide many different musical sounds, and Hilary has managed to blend them well, but I believe the 'neatest' sound is the Hammond organ on the first song.  She uses A J Gennaro on drums and percussion, and Josh Schilling on mandolin, with James Wells on bass.  All of it recorded at Sawhorse Studios in St. Louis, Mo.  Hilary's voice is very sincere, it brings to my mind flash-backs to a time in music when 'sincerity' was 'normal.'  Today it's a hidden quality with so much 'pretend' music on the market.  So, we have to seek it out, and here it is on our back door step.  It's about 'love' and finding it, losing it, and rejecting it, and finally 'understanding' it. Musical songs as they were originally meant to do, tell a story, and at the least 'explain.'  Originally from Seattle, Washington, Hilary makes her home in St. Louis, Missouri, and has traveled all over the world with her music.  The Columbia Daily News has described Hilary's 'box' as Americana, however I see it as much more broad than that, I hear old-time, I hear jazz, I hear country, I hear folk. I hear impressions and I hear 'intimate international.'  This is a lovely piece of work, only a small part of her upcoming album that will be released in 2014.  I will be passing this along to the Rural Roots Music Commission, no telling how they are going to react to this wonderful musical work of art.  www.hilaryscott.com

CD: TAMMY JONES ROBINETTE Let It Shine


TAMMY JONES ROBINETTE
Let It Shine
 
Steal Away and Pray - All Of This And Heaven Too - If I Could Take My Family To Heaven - God's Been Good - Only God - I Can't Go Back There - Let It Shine - Master's Hand - Stroll Over Heaven - My Daddy's Mountains - Best Friend - Burden Bearer
 
Opening a great country/bluegrass album with an Albert Brumley song is sure to attract attention, and it surely does in the hands and voice of this lovely gospel singer from Ohio.  Not only a terrific singer, with a 'believe me' attitude, but a great songwriter too.  Eight of the twelve songs are hers.  Though she now lives in Ohio, her background, her music, her inspirations have come from the hills of Kentucky where she grew up.  According to her printed insert, Tammy says, "Your talent is God's gift to you.  What you do with it is your gift back to God."  How her record company, Little Creek Records managed to gather together this incredibly 'gifted' group of musicians amazes me.  From the very outset, they are right on the button on every song of this album.  I've had the opportunity to work with Rob Ickes before, he's an incredibly talented Dobro player.  Add to this Andy Leftwich on mandolin (he's one of our Hall of Fame nominees) and Molly Cherryholmes on fiddle, piecing that together with Ron Block on guitar and banjo, some additional fiddle from Aubrey Haynie, and the upright bass by Mark Fain (also the producer, and a good job he's done).  Add to that the additional help of Sharon (Skaggs) and Cheryl White, Jeff Parker, Herb Pedersen Dale Ann Bradley, Steve Gulley, and Jamie Dailey doing harmonies, and you already know this is a one-of-a-kind 'gift' from the Bluegrass world of music.  Recorded at Ricky Skaggs studio in Nashville, how it could not be 'perfect?'  It takes a special 'ear' to 'hear' good acoustic music in the studio and it's all very apparent here.  This is so different than the 'imitation-country' we hear today on country music top-40.  Nothing similar at all.  If you've been looking for some truth in music, some answers, maybe not understanding what Christ means to you, perhaps needing consolation...THIS is the album you need.  You will want to listen over and over to get the full meaning of everything that appears on this 'gift' from an incredibly 'gifted' singer/songwriter, Tammy Jones Robinette.  Noah's ark to Daddy's mountains is covered with a many-colored blanket of love, adoration, respect, and a beautiful voice.

PS: This CD will definitely go to the Rural Roots Music Commission for consideration in their CD of the Year awards.

TRADITION BULLETIN JANUARY 20. 2014

TRADITION BULLETIN JANUARY 20. 2014


Here's the news:  Trace Adkins, one of the Nashville 'so called country' artists, entered an alcoholic rehab treatment facility January 15 after leaving a country music cruise that included stops in Jamaica.  Apparently he got in a fist fight with a Trace Adkins impersonator sound-alike karaoke singer who was singing in one of the ship's bars.
 
Latest on Randy Travis is that he is still recuperating from his stroke.  He is still paralyzed on the right side, he cannot walk, and can barely speak.  His daily medical care continues with a nurse that visits every day as well as having long-term caretakers that take care of his daily needs.  He has to wear a helmet to prevent the chance of brain injury, he is still confined to bed or wheelchair.  Prayers are still very much needed for the healing of Randy Travis.
 
The Great Plains Ragtime Society will have their monthly meeting January 26, 2pm-4pm, at the Durham Booth Manor, 923  N. 38th St. in Omaha.  402-556-3340 for more information from Jim Boston.
 
Randall Franks is sharing a duet recording highlighted by restored archival tracks featuring the unique harmonies of my favorite Bluegrass brothers act, Jim & Jesse McReynolds.  You can find it on Randy's new CD, "Mississippi Moon - Country Treasures."
 
Another book out on Woody Guthrie.  This time it covers his years 1956-61 when he was a patient at Greystone Park Psychiatric Hospital.  The book is called "Woody Guthrie's Wardy Forty: Greystone Park State Hospital Revisited."  It's by photographer and New Milford native, Phil Buehlen, in consolidation with Nora Guthrie.  Cost is $75 and it's available at the website www.woodyguthrie.org
 
Allen Karl, originally from Maryland, but now very busy in Nashville with his Century II recording company has just released his long awaited new single "Saving It Up For Saturday Night."  It's a great up-tempo 'real' country music song, and one of the best Allen has ever released.  Allen is a master at keeping his country music traditional and classic, as he has always promised to do.  I hope we get to review this great new single, and then pass it along to the Rural Roots Music Commission.
 
Getting any 'real' country music news is getting harder and harder.  There's lots of stories about the country imitators, but that is all paid for hype, promotion, and self grandizement, and it's all over the place AND it's all pretty much 'nothing.'  There was one little tidbit in all the fal-de-rah (which costs a lot of money by the way).... Even "Big & Rich" can't come up with the big bucks.  After getting the boot from Warner Brothers Records, they have decided to go even bigger time.  They're going to start their own record label.  Wow, big and rich they will need to be.
 
Kind of nice to see Alan Jackson at the top of the heap with #1 on the Top-20 country countdown charts with his recording "Blue Ridge Mountain Song."
 
Bluegrass legend Doyle Lawson was honored by his record label "Mountain Home Music" with an award commemorating Doyle's song "Dixie Road," which topped the Bluegrass Unlimited magazine song chart.
 
Sheila and I are going to be interviewed by Becky Buller on a radio station in Nashville.  Becky is the fiddler for Valarie Smith (we worked with her when we were in Denmark).  Becky just signed with Dark Shadow Records and is in the process of recording her first album in ten years using Sam Bush's band as backing in the studio.
 
California never ceases to amaze me when it comes to Bluegrass music.  January 19 is the first California Film Festival, where they will be screening "Making History with Pioneers of Bluegrass."  Held in Redwood City, on two concurrent Sundays, the first one featuring "Broken Circle Breakdown" a film from Belgium up for an Academy Award, followed by the films "Story of the Banjo & Midnight Plowboys," "Whiskey Rebellion Live in Oregon," and "The Making of Pa's Fiddle."  January 26 they will feature "Making History with Pioneers of Bluegrass,'  the "Tao of Bluegrass: A Portrait of Peter Rowan," and "Herschel Sizemore, Mandolin in B."  AND, all of it is free.  California, it's something.
 
The 30th National Cowboy Poetry Gathering (January 27-February 1) will be held in Elko, Nevada, and it isn't JUST poetry.  There's also old-time cowboy and western music, western theme arts and crafts, and this year a symposium on 'How to Keep Them Down on the Ranch After They've Seen Wi-Fi."  They will be discussing issues affecting ranching and rural culture, and rural agricultural communities.  Also on the agenda, "how ranchers are finding balance between traditional methods and new ideas so they can be good stewards of the natural environment and keep the ranch running."  It's all about "Home on the Range" and how western ranchers are meeting the needs of a growing population by producing food in a renewable and sustainable way.  The Dead Poacher Ranch, by the way, is a 150-acre spread in Boerne, Texas, and it's for sale.  $1,200,000.00 will get it for you right away....for 150 acres?  Wow, such a deal.
