Sid GriffinSid Griffin now lives in England, but his work is still deeply drenched in Americana. He puts out books about music and he plays in a bluegrass band called The Coal Porters. They have a new album called Durango and we check it out in this episode. We also check out the new one for the Canadian band The Sadies. It’s called Darker Circles. In our short-lived Salt Lake City Lighthouse series we had a guest musician called Kim Simpson as a guest and he played a live set for us. His band The Mad Dukes have a new single out called Joey Superteen’s Gone and I produced it.
