Irish guitar player Gary Moore was a one time member of Thin Lizzy, which was an amazing band. He was in and out of the band many times, but their album Black Rose that featured Moore marked a new era for this band and it is one of their strongest. Moore was a kind of rock musician that put virtuosity ahead of everything. This is a thin line that can make you sound kitschy or really grand. Moore did both, but we will remember him for the best. This show goes to him. First half hour of the show is therefore loud and for the most part live. Still, we also introduce some new artists, Towerbrown from France and Susie Hug from London. Even though Susie lives in London, her sound is very American. This is not surprising since she’s raised in San Diego in a Japanese-American family. Just check our her latest album Tuscon Moonshine that she recorded with the help of Joey Burns and John Convertino of Calexico and Giant Sand fame. We also check in with North Mississippi Allstars – a band that we featured for the first time exactly 10 years ago. They have a new album called Keys To The Kingdom. We also check in with our good friend Huw Akiba Jones and his Akibas. They recorded another album pastorally titled The Cows on Donkey Hillin 2009 and it’s finally in our hands.
