This must be international day for me to review CD's.  I just did a super good one from Japan, and now we have one from Australia, from an equally talented lady singer.  Maggie is well know in Australia, and this first song starts out with a 12-string guitar.  How could I not like that?  This particular CD is devoted to Maggie's dad, John Joseph Carmody. She also has two originals on this CD, both of them very interesting.  She's been singing since 2008,  learned how to play the guitar, and is trying her hand at songwriting, and I'd have to say if these two are examples, she's going to do just fine.  She grew up in Cunnamulla, which she so adequately describes in the song 'Cunnamulla Dust Storm.'  I find Australia's traditional country music sound very interesting and very easy to listen to.  It has the same 'story song' approach that Hank Sasaki from Japan uses to actually 'tell' a story, and in the case of both of these songwriters, they write about 'real' things, events, happenings, and feelings.  Very unlike so-called country music in America these days.  Maggie is an attractive woman who has an interesting voice, and she knows how to put 'feeling' in what she is singing about.  The 'dust storms' she writes about, must have been very much like our own 'Okie" experience.  The Grapes of Wrath exist in Australia too, and Maggie tells it like it is.  She had a lot of help from Malcolm Miller on this CD, and it is recorded, mixed, produced and directed very well.  I like the 'lead guitar' runs, very nice old-time and traditional country sounding.  Like Mr. Sasaki's CD, I am immediately sending this CD off to the Rural Roots Music Commission.  I know how difficult it must be to make arrangements to come to America, and then find your way into the most agricultural state in the union to join company with like-minded country music performers and fans, but that is exactly what I hope Maggie Stokes might try to do.  Call it a vacation Maggie, a once in a lifetime opportunity to join forces with equal-minded folks who dearly love what you are doing with your music.

Every time I sit down to listen to a new country CD these days, I'm eternally surprised at the incredible talent in America that the general population does not have the opportunity to hear.  Hank Sasaki is from Japan.  That alone is saying something, but Hank Sasaki is a country singer in the American style, from Japan.   He was born and raised in a small village on Kyushu Island in southern Japan.  When he was 15 he heard a Hank Williams' song on the radio.  That voice and the feeling the song conveyed not only touched Hank's heart, it changed the course of his life.  His ambition was to be come a country singer.  This story is a familiar one, but to follow his dream in Japan took a real pioneer spirit.  He wrote the first song on this CD, "Three Weeks To Go," which is an astonishing rendition of what country music has always been, all around the world.  So different from the songs we hear on radio these days, this is a 'story' song, a form of music and a genre of music nearly suffocated by today's top-40 artists and companies that promote them.  Country music has always been identifiable by the singer who is performing.  That too has nearly disappeared in today's top-40 line up, difficult for the most observant listener to tell apart, or at best, identify the singer.  In the past it was easy to guess who was singing on the first note.  Why was that?  Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Ernest Tubb, Bill Monroe, Willie Nelson, need I say more.  Many more there are, the entire 'base' of country music was built on being able to 'identify' the artist singing.  I must say I have never been so surprised to hear one of those voices emerging, from Japan of all places.  Hank Sasaki has his own way of singing (magnificently I might add) with identifiable characteristics so missing from today's music. I immediately sent this CD to some of our Rural Roots Music Commission members, and those that heard it immediately agreed, the "Story Song CD of the Year" was Mr. Sasaki's.  This has happened rather rapidly, so I'm very happy to announce that even though he is on tour in Japan in August, Hank Sasaki will be at LeMars on Aug 29-30.  Please watch for him on the main stage, you will be amply impressed.  The ability to write a good 'story' song has almost disappeared from country music today, but Hank Sasaki is here to tell us all that it's not gone yet.  Take a listen and see for yourself.  The only other songwriter close to Mr. Sasaki is Larry Cordle, who will be with him on Saturday.  Larry wrote "Murder on Music Row," and our own Terry Smith will be on with Mr. Sasaki.  Whew!  How about Hugh Moffatt "Old Flames Can't Hold A Candle...."  Right on boys, not one of today's country songs can hold a candle to what Mr. Sasaki is producing, and you too!
