KEN IRWIN CONTINUES TO “DIG DEEP” INTO THE ROUNDER RECORDS CATALOG FOR GLOBAL RADIO

Posted on November 28, 2017








"For much of this past year I’ve been sharing some deep catalog, from the Tau Moe Family to Vernon Oxford, which I thought many of you might have missed initially.

This month I have focused on more recognizable artists such as Gatemouth Brown - Rounder’s first Grammy winner, and Solomon Burke - one of the greatest soul singers ever.  “My Home Ain’t in the Hall of Fame” by J.D. Crowe featuring Keith Whitley is a fence sitting album, it isn’t country or bluegrass, but straddles the line . While The Spanic Boys, although they appeared on Saturday Night Live, will likely be the artists least familiar to many.  Their appearance almost didn’t happen as no one could reach Ian Spanic in the days before cell phones, and we almost had to cancel!  This batch is also a catch up month for Americana and Austin including wonderful recordings from Jimmy Dale Gilmore and Joe Ely, both of whom were Americana before there was such a designation.

We include two relatively new releases here as well, Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers and Chris Hillman both put out albums on Rounder this fall.  Martin’s effort with the Steep Canyon Rangers showcasing his Bluegrass prowess as a songwriter and banjo player, while Hillman’s record further solidifies his reputation as a seminal figure in American roots music."
