John Fullbright “DAYDREAMER”
from From The Ground Up (Blue Dirt Records 2012) N —Larry Weir, about 5 years ago came back from the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival raving about a teenager from Okemah, that teen has finally made a cd and WOW !! was Larry right, best CD I've heard this year, remember where you heard him first.
Liz Stringer “The Road's Inglorious End”
from Tides Of Time (One Little Indian 2010) —Another singer/songwriter from down under, discovered Liz as part of Shackleton 3 with Mick Thomas & Anna Burley. Highly recommended.
Greg Jacobs “River Run Dry (Live)”

Bruce Robison “Travellin' Soldier”
from Bruce Robison (Vireo Records 1995) —Back to our Memorial Day Tributes, I'm sure this song has paid a lot of bills for Bruce and Kelly, a mega hit for the Dixie Chicks, that's what happens when your brother marries one of the Chicks !!
Blue Wing “Black Diamond”
from Blue Wing (Moonlight Gold Productions 1998) —A group that's no longer together, great civil war song written by Jeff Trathen & Dan Crook, later covered by Katy Moffatt and David Wilkie and Cowby Celtic.
Greg Trooper with the Flatirons “EVERYWHERE”
