Ways To Connect

Remember that mixtape your friend made you way back when - the one that's etched in your soul? Martin Sexton's new album 'Mixtape of the Open Road' is a self-described musical cross-country trip, blazing through all territories of style, as you cruise through time and place. This record is a charm bracelet of twelve gems all strung together with the golden thread of what Rolling Stone calls his 'soul marinated voice'.

Alligator Records will release 'Outskirts Of Love', the genre-smashing new release from trailblazing vocalist Shemekia Copeland on September 11 – the same day KSUT will feature the CD at 12 noon.

We're happy to welcome Colorado-based, progressive, acoustic string band The Railsplitters back to the KSUT listening area this weekend, for their performance at the Four Corners Folk Festival. The band's latest CD, 'The Faster It Goes', is our feature CD this week, as we give folks a preview of some of the talent gathering on Reservoir Hill in Pagosa Springs. Tune-in Friday at 12 noon.

Blues icon Buddy Guy has released his new studio recording Born To Play Guitar.  The album features guest appearances by Van Morrison, Joss Stone, Kim Wilson and Billy Gibbons.  Morrison joins Buddy on the heartfelt “Flesh & Bone,” a song dedicated to the late great B.B. King.  On “Come Back Muddy”, Guy reminisces about the good ole days with his friend Muddy Waters.  The album is produced by Grammy Award winning producer/songwriter Tom Hambridge.

GRAMMY-award winning artist Warren Haynes has been recognized as a cornerstone of the American music landscape and revered as one of the finest guitar players in the world. Throughout his prolific career as part of three of the greatest live groups in rock history – Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule and the Dead – his virtuosic artistry has led to thousands of unforgettable performances and millions of album and track sales. Despite all of the ground that Haynes has covered on his musical journey, the impressive thing is that he still has many miles to explore.

Dwight Yoakam will visit KSUT's home town on Saturday, August 1, performing at the Sky Ute Casino Resort in Ignacio. Alas, he won't be dropping by the station, but we will be featuring the new CD 'Second Hand Heart' in his honor. 

While the guy has one of the most  impressive catalogs in country music, it's his most recent projects that resonate with KSUT's blend of music, remaining firmly in country/roots territory, with nothing left to prove to the commercial country crowd. 

We're pretty impressed with the new Amy Helm CD 'Didn't it Rain', and look forward to playing it for you on Friday 7/24 at 12 noon on KSUT. This solo project is also the result of the final recording sessions of her father Levon Helm, who acted as the project’s executive producer as well as adding his unmistakable drumming on three tracks.

Jason Isbell's new CD, 'Something More Than Free' is KSUT's feature this week. Hear it in its entirety Friday at 12 noon.

A great follow up to Isbell's celbrated breakthrough album 'Southeastern', the former member of the Drive-By Truckers continues to unleash his storytelling skills on this fine project.

Mike + Ruthy – “one of acoustic America’s most revered musical duos” (Folk Alley) – have re-emerged with an ace ensemble and their stunning new album Bright As You Can.  Surrounded by friends and family, Mike Merenda and Ruthy Ungar are forging their own take on Americana, not just musically, but in their non-traditional approach to life and parenthood which has informed the songwriting and emotional range of Bright As You Can. The album is in many ways a heartfelt musical expression of Merenda and Ungar’s life and adventures together.

Outlaw music legends Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard have reunited for 'Django and Jimmie', KSUT's feature CD this Friday, July 3, at 12 noon - as we kick off the July 4th holiday weekend.
