Winter has come a little early to the mountains of the Mid-Atlantic. As this November Trail Mix goes live, the higher elevations of the Blue Ridge Mountains are blanketed with an early – and heavy – snow. Time to hit the slopes or strap on the snowshoes, get outside and head into the whiteness!
Make sure you take this month’s fantastic Trail Mix with you!
We kick off November with “Bilgewater Blues,” a funky blues jam from Jimmy Herring, one of the South’s living guitar legends. Herring has played with Aquarium Rescue Unit, The Allman Brothers Band, Widespread Panic, Phil Lesh, and more, and has spent much of the latter part of 2012 supporting his second solo release, Subject To Change Without Notice.
Trail Mix is also thrilled to present a track from Grammy winning artist Kathy Mattea. Mattea, a West Virginia native, has become a leading voice in the struggle mountain top removal. Her latest record on the Sugar Hill label, Calling Me Home, speaks to her deep Appalachian roots.
True to form, Trail Mix is all over the musical map this month. We have Australian singer/songwriter Paul Kelly, Irish folkie Luka Bloom, rockabilly queen Rosie Flores, and some great regional artists in Antique Firearms, The Mason Brothers, The Bloody Angle, The Last Bison, Aaron Burdett, and Bryan Elijah Smith & The Wild Hearts.
We are also happy to have tracks from Ari Hest, Jim Byrnes, Forest Sun, The Coal Porters, The Trishas, and many more for you. Make sure to give Trail Mix a spin this month. Download or stream at home, work, or on your intelligent device of choice. Spread the word. Help us share the music these fantastic artists have so willingly shared with us. And if you take a notion, grab a disc from one or two or these great bands or catch them live if they are coming through your neck of the woods.
