Birds Fly South

Last night, opening for Steve Earle n Bloomington, IN, I heard The Mastersons for the first time. Not only are they invaluable to Earle's work...perfect guitar slides in and out at just the perfect place and vocals that enhance and underscore, rather than surplant...but they are, on their own, a major talent in my view. In spite of the audio disparities in the Buskirk Theater venue that ovewhelmed the a great date, things got better as the night continued. Love these guys and wish them all the best....another Austin treasure without all the nonsense.

Just heard them open for Los Lobos at the World Cafe Live at the Queen in Wilmington, Delaware. Gorgeous venue. Excellent show, good humor, wonderful vocals, and strong playing on guitar and violin. Came home and downloaded several of their tunes. One thing stands out. Could hear every word of every song. Isn't that the whole point of a singer/songwriter act? But so rare.
