Much of the Blue Ridge is enjoying mild temperatures and some rain; apparently, August is coming in like a lamb.

Thankfully, Trail Mix is coming in like a lion.

This is a huge month for Trail Mix. We have over thirty tracks to offer you, and the mix includes some of the biggest name in roots music – Tedeschi & Trucks, John Scofield, Guy Clark, Jason Isbell, The Greencards, and even Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell.

Also check out tunes from some fantastic up and coming artists – The Tillers, The Wild Rumpus, Cale Tyson, Burning River Ramblers, and Gregory Alan Isakov.

Download it often and play it loud. Tell a friend. Tell a random stranger. And, most importantly, seek out some of these records and buy them. Show your appreciation and give back to these artists that give to Trail Mix. Buy a record or two – you can never have enough music.
