The Indie Spotlight is "Black Beauty," the new solo CD from Hot Club of Cowtown’s Elana James, an amazing fiddle player, who also provides wonderful vocals. Whit and Jake of Hot Club do guest performances on the CD. WVGN has this CD as a first and exclusive — we got the CD, which will be officially released later this month, directly from Elana.
We include music from Jacqui Naylor, who will appear in concert in Water Island at the home of Alex Randall. This will be a special Valentine’s Day concert.
We also include new music from Ryan Adams, Old Crow Medicine Show, Rockin Jason D. Williams, Willie Nile and more.
We play music from Taj Mahal with Gregg Allman, Koko Taylor, Annie Lennox, John Hiatt, the Doors, Coasters and more.
We also play music from Yvette Landry, who will perform at 8 p.m. at Tillett Gardens on March 20 as part of the Arts Alive season.
We feature songs in honor of Pistarckle Theater’s “Pump Boys and Dinettes” including songs about diners, bars, honky tonks, restaurants, etc. as well as music from Dwight Yoakam, the Derailers, Paul McCartney and Wings, Jim Croce and more.
