Billy Don Burns Song Of The Week On WMBR In Cambridge, MA

Billy Don Burns has written more great songs than we can discuss in one sitting and within that body of work, many accolades are finally starting to come his way. His lyrical content can flow from heart ache to redemption and within those layers of musical journey, one man's soul is being echoed the landscape for all to hear. We thank WMBR for making Gaylor Creek Church, the song of the week. Do yourself a favor and check out their Lost Highway show for some other great music.

Billy Don Burns song Gaylor Creek Church is the feature song of the week on WMBR in Cambridge, MA
"Many thanks to Lucy Kaplansky for taking time from the family holiday to chat with me yesterday morning. We discussed the studio sessions with her great posse of musicians (Buddy Miller, Eliza Gilkyson, Duke Levine, Kevin Barry, etc) for her new release, Reunion, as well as songwriting with her husband Rick Litvin, and the joys of harmony singing. She's in town at Passim this Friday (30th) and Saturday (1st) at 7pm for cd release parties.
Only a couple of first time spins on yesterday's show - from Jesse Cook's latest (The Blue Guitar Session) and Joe Walsh's solo cd from a couple years back (Sweet Loam - that's the Gibson Brothers' Joe Walsh, not the James Brothers'). Next week I'll offer up that once annual best-of Lost Highway (2012) holiday shopping list show. If you're still buying music for friends 'n family (or just for yourself), this'll be a useful and fun couple of hours!
For a handful of suggestions for live music out around town this week, here you go:
- The Roy Sludge Trio this afternoon at 4pm at Radio
- the Berklee American Roots Music Series, Tuesday at 8pm at Passim - and/or - the Duke Levine Band at 9pm at Atwood's
- the Berklee American Roots Music Series Wednesday (yes, 2 nights in a row!) w/ the Acoustic Blues Ensemble, the Beatles Bluegrass Band & the Catie Offerman Band at 8pm at Cafe 939
- Simone Felice Thursday at 9pm at Great Scott - or - Three Tall Pines & Roosevelt Dime at 9pm at the Lizard
- the Jimmy Ryan Band Friday at 6pm at Sally O'Brien's - and - Lydia Loveless, Coyote Kolb, the Dirty Truckers & the Civil Warblers at the Middle East Upstairs a little before 10pm
