Mac Wiseman Month

Well, it had to happen sooner or later.  And thankfully, it was later.  Mac Wiseman, the voice with the heart passed away this February down in Tennessee at 93.  Anyone who has ever heard the Dixie Bee Line knows what a huge fan I am of Mac Wiseman, and I will really miss him.  Read More…

Well, the simplest, most literal meaning is, a week spent in a beautiful, wooded setting on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee, learning and making music with old friends, new friends, and world-class professional musicians.

WUMB’s Annual International Women’s Day Celebration

Some of my favorite artists and musicians happen to be women. Mary Gauthier, Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Brandi Carlile, Emmylou Harris…. The list of women making insightful, deep music today and for years could go on and on.

As far as classic country goes, there’s no one better than Maybelle Carter, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson in my book. Read More…
