Howdy we're in Lexington, Kentucky for the Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, also with Melissa Ferrick, live webcast tonight at 7pm EDT. It's also broadcast on over 500 radio stations, Armed Forces radio, and on some PBS stations. Check the website for details on that. And dive into the archives! - Joe Lewis Walker, Aoife O'Donovan, The McCrary Sisters, The Deadly Gentlemen - it's an amazing resource of great American music. The Barn Birds album is out! We love the words "album" and "record." They have outlived format names like "LP" and "8-track" and "MiniDisc." It is an album of our best work, recorded for you to enjoy. We hope you love it. If you hate it, turn it up really loud and leave it playing in your house while you're at work so your neighbors can check it out. You can listen and download on bandcamp or order a CD from Waterbug Records. It will be on iTunes this week, Spotify, Rdio, Pandora, and your mama's new music website by Friday.
