Fwd: This Monday is KASU's Bluegrass Monday with High Fidelity
Posted on Monday June 27, 2016

Dear Bluegrass Friends,

I hope you are staying cool this summer! Come enjoy some hot
bluegrass in the cool comfort of the beautiful Collins Theatre this Monday
night.

High Fidelity will perform a concert of bluegrass music this Monday,
June 27, at 7:00 p.m. at the Collins Theatre, 120 West Emerson Street, in
downtown Paragould, Arkansas. The performance is part of the Bluegrass
Monday concert series presented by KASU 91.9 FM. KASU will literally “pass
the hat” to collect money to pay the group. The suggested donation is $5
per person.

Formed in 2014, High Fidelity is a group of young musicians who have a
passion for bluegrass music from the 1950s and 1960s. The band is heavily
influenced by artists from that era such as the Stanley Brothers, Jim and
Jesse, the Louvin Brothers, Don Reno and Red Smiley.

Shortly after their formation, High Fidelity won the 2014
International Band Championship at the 40th annual Society for the
Preservation of Bluegrass Music in America awards. Since then, the band
has been performed at select venues across the country, receiving acclaim
from bluegrass music fans who love their traditional style and sound. High
Fidelity released their debut CD earlier this year.

Kurt Stephenson plays banjo and sings harmony in the band. He is a
graduate of Arkansas State University, and he is the 2010 winner of the
National Bluegrass Banjo Championship held in Winfield, Kansas. A native
of West Tennessee, Stephenson has performed in the band Stone County
Connection which has performed at past Bluegrass Monday concerts. He has
released his own solo CDs.

Jeremy Stephens is the guitarist and lead vocalist for High Fidelity.
He has been performing bluegrass music in a variety of bands for almost
twenty years, and he is best known as the guitarist and vocalist in the
long-running gospel group The Chuck Wagon Gang. In addition to playing
guitar, he is also an in-demand banjo player having worked with Phillip
Steinmetz and the Sunny Tennesseans as well as Kody Norris and the Watauga
Mountain Boys.

Corrina Rose Logston plays fiddle and sings harmony in the group. She
has performed in numerous acclaimed and high profile bluegrass groups
including Jesse McReynolds and the Virginia Boys, David Peterson and 1946,
and Chris Henry and the Hardcore Grass. She is also an outstanding
songwriter, and she has produced two solo CDs featuring her own
compositions.

Vickie Vaughn plays bass for the band. In addition to playing with
High Fidelity, she leads her own bluegrass group, and she has performed in
the bands of country superstar Patty Loveless and bluegrass vocalist
Valerie Smith.

The doors to the theatre will open at 6:00 on the night of the
concert, and seating will be first-come, first-served.

In addition to the concert, Terry’s Café, 201 South Pruett Street in
Paragould, opens on Bluegrass Monday nights to welcome bluegrass music
fans. The café serves a catfish buffet meal beginning at 4:30 p.m. on the
evenings of Bluegrass Monday concerts. Concessions will also be available
at the Collins Theatre.

Bluegrass Monday concerts are held on the fourth Monday night of each
month. These concerts are presented with support from Bibb Chiropractic,
the Posey Peddler, Holiday Inn Express and Suites of Paragould, the
Northeast Arkansas Bluegrass Association and KASU.

KASU, 91.9 FM, is the 100,000 watt public broadcasting service of
Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. For more information, contact KASU
Program Director Marty Scarbrough at mscarbro@astate.edu or 870-972-2367.
Bluegrass Monday is also on Facebook (search “Bluegrass Monday”). To be
removed from this emailing list, reply to this email.

If you love hard-drivin’, traditional bluegrass music, you’ll love
High Fidelity. I look forward to seeing you Monday night.

Marty

*Bill Johnson* *“Cold Outside”* *Oxborough Music...
Posted on Monday June 27, 2016



*Bill Johnson*
*“Cold Outside”*
*Oxborough Music Co.*
*By Peter “Blewzzman” Lauro © June 2016*


*Prelude*

Those of you who receive these review emails, those of you who regularly
visit our website, and those of you who received copies of our “*Mary4Music
Presents: Keeping The Blues Alive*” compilation CD series should be quite
familiar with the name Bill Johnson.
- Back in 2010 we reviewed his “*Still Blue*
” for that CD
being my favorite of all the discs I reviewed that year, and a song
from that CD - “*Half The Man*” - earned Bill an additional “Blewzzy
Award” as my favorite song of over hundreds of songs from those
discs.
- In 2012 that same song - “*Half The Man*” - appeared on the debut
“*Keeping The Blues Alive Volume One
” *CD.
- In 2015 another song of Bill’s titled “*Another One*” appeared on
“*Keeping The Blues Alive Volume Seven*

Now Bill’s back with another dynamite disc and I just can’t wait to tell
you about it.

*Review*

On “*Cold Outside*” - his fourth release - Bill Johnson, on guitars and
vocals, is joined by: Rick Erickson on bass; Darcy Phillips on piano &
organ; Ross Hall on drums; Joby Baker on drums plus song on bass: and David
Vest on piano. The disc contains eleven original tracks that include a
well rounded mix of traditional, swing, rock, funk, soul and roots blues.

The disc opens with “*Baggage Blues*” and as the title seems to indicate,
it’s about a relationship involving some past hardships. To his
regret, Bill’s woman keeps handing him the baggage that someone else has
given her…and it’s starting to get quite heavy. Musically, it’s one of
the more straight up blues tracks. Rick and Ross are right in the pocket
on the rhythm, David’s smokin’ on the piano and Bill slammin’ out some
blues on both the guitar and the vocals. Real great track.

Hit the floor dancers! As Bill say’s “Don’t call it jazz, it’s my west
coast blues. Ain’t no outside notes, like Charlie Parker used”. Yeah, he
may be “one buck short of ten” but “*Nine Dollar Bill”* - and everyone
else, for that matter - are killing it on this one. Relentless from start
to finish.

His wife was sick while his mother was dying. He’s at the end of his rope
he’s nearly finished tryin’. He couldn’t find a job and he was close to
hitting bottom. He tried to call his friends but it seems he hasn’t got
‘em. He even called his preacher but the preacher never called him back.
The bank took his house he’s bust and he’s broken. He’s in desperate need
of a soul healer but the only friend he has is a drug dealer. Nobody
really knows you when you’re down, it’s “*Cold Outside*”. If any of these,
or the rest of the bone chilling lyrics are true - and I happen to sadly
know that some are - is it any wonder Bill Johnson sings the blues?
Although there’s somewhat of an eerie melody going on behind him, this
track’s pretty much all Bill. From the somber and heartfelt delivery of
the melancholy lyrics to the intriguing sound of his slide guitar, Bill
puts his heart and soul into one hell of a performance on this one.

This song opens with Bill saying “I’ve got an inclination for the blues and
a natural ability to lose”. Now that may be true but the man also has
a “*Natural
Ability*” to belt the hell out of the blues as well. He’s at disc’s best
right here. His soulful vocals are as convincingly painful as his stinging
guitar leads. Also at disc’s best is Darcy. His seventy second piano and
organ intro immediately had me knowing I’d be listening to some amazing
blues….and indeed I did. Here’s the Blewzzman’s ultimate compliment Bill
- not only do I think this song’s the one to beat for this year’s
Blewzzy but it’s song of the year material as well. You nailed this one,
my friend.

This one’s called “*Makes A Fella Nervous*” but it had this fella rockin &
rollin’. Lyrically it’s a song about paranoia and musically its a song
about…..well…..paranoia. Rick, Joby and David are rockin’ the rhythm
on bass, drums and piano, Bill’s rockin’ out on guitar and the whole song
just screams rock & roll. Rockin’ good job guys.

“*Driftin’ and Driftin’*” is easily the most beautiful song of the lot.
It’s a love ballad with a fifties and a bit of a country feel, and
everything about it is perfect. The rhythm is totally relaxing, Bill’s
soft and emotional singing is transcending and his pickin’ and strummin’ on
the National Resonator are flawless and masterful. At five and a half
minutes, it’s one of the disc’s longer tracks but man I could have handled
it being an hour and a half.

Other songs on “*Cold Outside*” include: *“Night Train”, “True Love”, “Free
From My Troubles”, “Angry Guitar”, *and *“Angeleen”. *

Right about now is when you should be going over to *www.billjohnsonblues.com
*. While you’re there, make sure you
read his bio. The guy has played with so many of the genres giants you’ll
think you’re reading the lineup of a month of blues festivals. And please,
don’t forget to tell him the Blewzzman
sent you.

'Lift ev'ry voice and sing:' Honoring an anthem and its author
Posted on Sunday June 26, 2016

'Lift ev'ry voice and sing:' Honoring an anthem and its author:

Set to music in 1899 the song predates jazz, generally thought of as originating in the first two decades of the twentieth century.

In form and in harmony the song is a jazz change. Ahead of it’s time and part of it’s appeal.

I am so glad to see this detailed appreciation of this important song.
