From the Porch: Exploring…
The rain is falling… at least its a light rain and it appears to be about finished with our region for the day. If you feel like getting out, stretching your legs, hearing a few tunes and getting involved then head over to Max’s Brick oven in Paducah. Today the Buzzard Brothers Smoke on the Water Flood Relief Fundraiser kicks of at 11:00 AM. There’s BBQ, music and fellowship. Music starts at 11:00 and runs through around 3:30 or so. Nathan Blake Lynn and The Solid Rocket Booster’s mix it up with other local artists to provide entertainment. All proceeds go to The Community Foundation of West Kentucky. Find more info on Facebook.
I’m spinning new music from Town Mountain this morning in the second hour. These guys have been around for about 10-years with two albums already under their belt and a title from the Rockygrass Music Festival band competition. The new album Steady Operator hit the street May 10 and features both traditional and non-traditional bluegrass music. Find out more on these guys at www.townmountain.net.
Here is Town Mountain covering Bruce Springteen’s “I’m on Fire”.
