House Above the Sun- Five Hours North- CD review

Written by James Killen The purists are going to holler a bit, but we now have Americana coming in from Britain. Certainly, we expect this genre to come from this side of the pond and preferably from the South. I’m afraid however we may need to scoot over a bit and make some room for…


James McMurtry- Heights Theater- Houston, TX – Review

Written by James Killen It hasn’t been long since my last dose of James McMurtry, but getting to see him at the Heights Theater was too good to pass up. A young writer from West Texas, Jason Robert Blum, opened the evening with a more Western than Country style of folk. He appeared solo with…
