Johnny Irion

Johnny Irion worked with members of Dawes, Wilco and Mother Hips when creating his latest release, "Driving Friend."  He's on his way to see us. He'll be at Caffe Lena on October 11th.

Johnny is offering you a pair of tickets and one of the copies of his record on vinyl (CD if you'd prefer that version).

Peter Annello

When Peter Annello first came to us, he knocked us out with his charm and guitar playing abilities.  He's been working on his playing - playing out, going to cool guitar and music workshops like the ones at Cample Cripple Creek (summer of 2018) where he met and impressed Larry Campbell and others.

We keep admiring Peter's drive and his songs.  Now, he's out of high school, and he keeps impressing.  Check out his session with the trio, his father Chip Annello on drums and Paul Zullo on bass.

Amy Helm

Amy Helm stepped out of her comfort zone. She traveled to the west coast to work with Joe Henry on her latest album. She could have simply recorded as she has in the past, at her father's studio here in Woodstock, but instead, she transplanted herself and took a chance.

That chance paid off. She's just delivered another masterpiece of an album, "This Too Shall Light." She stopped by before a show at The Cohoes Music Hall to let us in on how it was made. She also shared some insight her father, the late, great Levon Helm, gave her. Life lessons learned and she's living them now.

Look: Big, dumb riffs are harder than you think. Palm-muted chugs and sidewinder pull-offs can rate on a scale of Honda Accord (safe, reliable, standard) to El Camino (muscular, mean, wild) depending on the driver who's stomping on the sonic gas pedal. Hair Puller was founded on this premise, and its 101 MPH sludge will pulverize your headbanging skull.

The Thistle & Shamrock: Live From Ireland

11 hours ago

Host Fiona Ritchie is feeling a little nostalgic and a lot Irish this week, delving into her radio archive to relive some of the great sets of Irish music she's aired on Thistle through the years.

Four years ago, Jocie Adams of The Low Anthem, stepped aside from the Rhode Island band she was a member of to begin the next evolution in her musical career as lead singer for Arc Iris. This Friday, Arc Iris will release its third album, Icon Of Ego, via Ba Da Bing Records.
