Bill MorrisseyThe first time I heard of Bill Morrissey was on a very interesting compilation record called Legacy: A Collection of New Folk Music. It included 15 singer songwriters that were all new to me in 1989. It was a new, original take on old folk theme, and gathered an exciting new scene that was budding at the time. Bill was definitely one of the stand-outs. He was based out of New Hampshire and he had several excellent solo records. Check them out especially if you are a fan of Townes Van Zandt or Butch Hancock. But, unfortunately, Bill Morrissey died in a hotel room somewhere in Georgia four days ago and in this show we say goodbye to him. We also have a new song for Detroit Cobras which appeared on the new Buddy Holly tribute. Masonics are a new name at the Lighthouse and they come from London UK. Finally, Disciplina Kicme is also back with a brand new album Uf! and it once again rocks my world.
