Progressive Rock Explorations!

Progressive Rock Explorations!

A few years ago, my son Andrew told me that I had 70sto go to one of the prog music festivals with him, because lots of the attendees were old gray-beards like me!! Since back in the 1960s and 70s I was a fan of early prog groups like The Moody Blues, Jethro Tull, Soft Machine, King Crimson, and Emerson, Lake and Plamer it made sense to me, so I started to explore Prog and found out that I did like it! So join me in my explorations of the genre!!

Roots Music Explorations

Roots Music Explorations

I have been a folk music fan since the first time I heard Tom Paxton, Tom Rush and Jerry Jeff Walker. Through the years of childrearing I mostly listened to the music of John Prine, Jerry Jeff, Steve Goodman and added folk artists like Bill Morrisey, John Gorka, and David Wilcox. When my boys go older we started going to Tunes Used CDs a lot and I started exploring Texas Country music, bluegrass and other Americana artists. Come and explore this genre and sub-genres with me!!

Blues - the Common Ground

Blues - the Common Ground

There's blues in jazz, progressive rock and folk and I love it all. I taste tends to lean mostly toward blues rockers like Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Sheperd and Stevie Ray, but I also like the masters like Buddy Guy, the Kings B,B, and Albert and Albert Collins. In the last few years I've added several blues women rockers to my list of favorites including: Samantha Fish, Joanne Shaw Taylor and Lisa Mann. So join me as I look for new and exciting blues music!!
