I have been a fan of Alison Krauss for many years and have her entire catalogue, a unique voice and also a unique talent. I simply love everything she does, from song writing, to producing.
Today she released Windy City which is her first solo album since 1999’s Forget About It. I think it has been worth the wait and has been the perfect end to a not so perfect week.
I have just bought this fastastic new album, I simply love everything Chris Thile does, a musical genius!

Thanks to a recommendation from @Leader_Music I simply cannot get enough of this newalbum by Karen Jonas, Country Songs. I had not heard Karen’s songs before, but her story telling is wonderful and her voice is incredible and yet classic country. I am sure by the end of the day I will have purchased her debut album Oklahoma Lottery.
I have to admit, when I first heard Garrison Keillor was retiring from A Prairie Home Companion after 42 years I was concerned my radio listening would never be the same.
I moved to the US for a few years in the late 90s and I discovered A Prairie Home Companion on Michigan Radio, and ever since then the show has been a part of my weekends. It’s possibly my favourite show on the radio…actually it’s probably second to my best buddies show, Leader’s American Pie.
However I was wrong to be concerned, Christ Thile is doing a fabulous job.
Chris Thile has been preparing to host the beloved radio variety show A Prairie Home Companion—which comes to Pasadena this weekend—for nearly his whole life
