Saturday Matinee – Igorrr, The Wise Guyz, Firebird Trio & Billy Strings

“It feels satisfying that, after all those years on the internet, I still can be wtfed.” -YouTube comment

I don’t know what to make of that, so you’re on your own. Igorrr (aka  Gautier Serre) claims to have synesthesia and perceives music as colors.

Like Ukrainian rockabilly? The Wise Guyz do a damn fine job.

Too hot to handle and too cold to hold, Australia’s Firebird Trio takes the heart of rock and roll and nails it to your forehead.

“Looks 14, sings like a 40 year old and jams like he’s been playing for a hundred years.” -YouTube comment.

William Apostol, aka Billy Strings, was exposed to bluegrass at a young age, and it shows. I’ve got turmoil and tinfoil on my mind these days, too.

Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll figure it all out tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Buddy Merrill, Neil LeVang, Tommy Emmanuel with Billy Strings, & Molly Tuttle

Saturday, 6 June 2020

Buddy Merrill played for Lawrence Welk‘s Champagne Music Makers for twenty years before he decided he didn’t like playing on camera.

You might not know his name, but you’ve heard his work.
Neil LeVang was one of the greatest studio guitar players of all time, played on many TV shows and movie soundtracks. Lawrence Welk hired him when Buddy Merrill was drafted.

Tommy Emmanuel & Billy Strings do things with guitars that just aren’t supposed to be done [via].

One more. Molly Tuttle has the perfect voice and style for this John Hartford cover. If that ain’t morning roadtrip music, nothing is.

Have a great weekend, watch out for the guys in black, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow for stuff.

Saturday Matinee – G-AAH, Billy Strings, Billy Gibbbons & Stéphane Grappelli

Aviator Amy Johnson was honored with an Underwood typewriter animation.tribute [via]. She achieved worldwide recognition when, in 1930, she became the first woman pilot or aviatrix to fly solo from England to Australia. She flew the G-AAAH Jason, a second-hand trainer airplane.

Stéphane Grappelli

Great early morning road trip music back when I was running early morning road trips. 1930s sunrise swing always worked for me.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.
