chrisk w new hatThis is one of those weeks when both the weekly post and the monthly News Notes & Spins column are on the same weekend .. .and the truth is, I should have had the News Notes and Spins done already, but other more pressing business slowed me down a day or two …. or three…..

This week’s show features two brand new releases from Euforquestra and Tallgrass.  Both bands are originally from Iowa, as is Mike Finders from Finnders & Youngberg bluegrass band, and Jeff Brinkman and his cellist Ben Davis.  I’m not sure what that says about Iowa.  The guys in Tallgrass  are friends with Mike Tallman and other members of Euforquestra, who moved to Fort Collins several years ago now.

Sorry, no new music shares this week.  None of the acts with new music have Bandcamp pages set up for those releases yet. 😦
