Trail Mix September 2013: Free Music Download

get more from BRO

Watching any given month of Trail Mix coming together is always an interesting process.  From time to time, a month will take on a certain flavor, tapping into a particular vibe.  As the days of August dwindled and the final tracks of the September mix rolled in, that was certainly the case.

This month’s Trail Mix is an Americana gem, with lots of bluegrass, old time, and singer/songwriter material that is really hard to beat.

Right out of the gate we have a tune that, recently, I described as being a nearly perfect song.  Tim O’Brien and Darrell Scott have long been two of my favorite songwriters.  Whenever they collaborate, goodness happens.  We are lucky to have “Brother Wind,” an older O’Brien tune, in our opening slot.  Scott and O’Brien included the tune on their recent release, Memories and Moments.

Check out the great bluegrassy sounds of  Chris Jones & The Night Drivers and Ron Block, who is typically out on the road with Allison Krauss & Union Station, and the good time old time feel of The Sweetback Sisters, Finnders & Youngerg, and Old Buck.

Trail Mix is also really big on the new record from The Whiskey Gentry.  “Dixie,” featured here this month, is a killer tune.

Make sure to explore new material from Deer Tick, Peter Cooper, Julian Lage and Chris Eldridge, and much more on our free music download.  Take a listen, spread the word, and get out and buy music from the artists.  Catch them at a venue near you.  And tune into the Trail Mix blog; we’ll be giving away some music and festival tickets this month.
