Real country music there, Kush. Very enjoyable. There is a programme on BBC Radio 2 this Sunday, 12th May at 15.00 with Tom Russell talking to Johnnie Walker in 'Sounds of the Seventies.' It should be interesting.

Hi Tony,

I did google the show but the clip is not available in the US. So what does he say ?

Hello Kush,

The interview is about one hour and twenty minutes into the show if you can eventually get it. It lasts about twenty minutes. He discusses, briefly, his career with its various turns. The only song of his that is played is 'The Joshua Tree' with a discussion about it. It is an interesting and amusing interview.

Anne & I were fortunate to see Tom at Fitzgerald's in Berwyn last Saturday night. He was joined on stage with Dave Alvin and Jimmy Dale Gilmore who had performed at Blues Fest earlier in the day. Here is Tom and Dave singing "Blue Wing" a song they wrote together.

Hey Joe and all,
The link below was in my LC google alert this morning.
If you haven't already seen it, I thought you might find it interesting :)

I know I have posted this song before but there is now a really good video to accompany it.

There is an interesting and informative link on Tom Russell's Facebook site to the folksinger Rosalie Sorrels.

Just saw this B4Real, thanks I should have posted it here-after all it is my small claim to fame in the Madison area! Doug and his wife are very nice and we had a great time with them that night.

A review by Canadian folk/roots reviewer Mike Regenstreif of his top nineteen albums for 2019. Leonard Cohen is at the top while Tom Russell is second. I wasn't completely sure where to put this posting!
