Bob Schneider "Let the Light In"

Today is travel day! The Foggers are heading back to Texas to attend the Cherokee Creek Music Festival. Usually when we hit one of these events, we go with a full dance card.  In this case, we are going, but don’t really know who we will be capturing in front of our cameras.  I hesitate to even tell you who will be performing, as the event is sold out, AND because we don’t have a clue as to who we might sit down with us for a session.

And so it seemed a good idea to post a brand new video from Bob Schneider, who is part of the Friday night lineup. He is his own cottage industry.  He's been a hot ticket in Austin for quite some time, and his albums seem to always reside in the top 15 at Waterloo Records.  He gigs multiple nights a week in Austin, with different kinds of music in different clubs, but all executed brilliantly.  I don’t know if you remember the band The Ugly Americans, but Bob was part of it before he went solo in 1999.  He has been incredibly prolific over the years, and has just released a new CD last month, A Perfect Day.  Here is one of the songs, from KINK-FM in Portland, OR, one of a handful of radio stations with a continuing commitment to art.  “Let The Light In” was taped there about 6 months ago.

Chris Thile & Michael Daves "Sleep With One Eye Open"

What long strange trip it's been for Chris Thile (pronounced THEE-lee.)  When we first made his acquaintance, he was with the teenage sensations, Nickel Creek.  Along the way there have been stints with the best and the brightest string players in the world, and then the formation of The Punch Brothers, who just played at New Orleans Jazz and Heritage. Their most recent album is called Antifogmatic. We like that!

But today we celebrate the release of the new CD from Chris Thile and Michael Daves, "Sleep With One Eye Open,"  a collection of 16 traditional tunes by bluegrass legends like The Monroe Brothers, The Louvin Brothers, Jimmy Martin, and Flatt & Scruggs.  They have tour dates which are not to miss, as they keep the old songs fresh and new, with style and substance.  Here they are doing the Lester Flatt composition, the title track from the album that streets today.
