One of the things I love most about owning this website (although I honestly love EVERYTHING about owning it) is that I am introduced to artists I might never come across. Canadian David Myles is one of those artists.
I do not always receive music that I thoroughly enjoy as much as I enjoy Myles’ album.
I knew more about Dwight Yoakam‘s reputation as both a musician and an actor than I did about his music itself, but I was as excited to see him perform for the first time (on the heels of an excellent new album, Second Hand Heart) as I was to see my first show at Indian Ranch!
I was impressed with both! Indian Ranch is an unusual venue. Set on Webster Lake in central Massachusetts, it is a combination campground and music venue. This show was accompanied by a light drizzle through much of the show, but that did not dampen anyone’s spirits even though some were in uncovered areas. I look forward to returning on a day with better weather!
When I know that I am seeing a rockabilly act, I expect it to be a rocking show. What I did not expect from this show at the Extended Play Sessions was the talent that is Rosie Flores, appearing with Dale Watson’s The Lone Stars.
Dale Watson was supposed to appear but he had laryngitis so Rosie graciously agreed to perform in his stead, with his band. Read the rest of this entry
