We had an opportunity to have Casey James Prestwood and the Burning Angels in for a live performance. We celebrated their latest release 'Honky Tonk Bastard World' - a release of all original material. We also spoke with Casey about his Country roots and carrying the torch of Gram Parsons into the 21st Century. Big Daddy was the host on the KGNU Kabaret. (Archive from 6/2/14)
The one and only, Wayne "The Train" Hancock paid us a visit early one June morning back in 2010 for this studio session with our very own Doc Martin. He may be a little on the young side but we consider Wayne to be a living legend carrying the torch of Classic Country wherever his path may lead him.
Local Gold: We had an opportunity to spend some time with Gregory Alan Isakov. He's certainly no stranger to the KGNU studios, having performed multiple times over the years. On this occasion, we caught up with him about his writing style and approach to instrumentation. We also spoke about his collaboration with the Colorado Symphony and the challenges of performing with an orchestra.
Local Gold: We had an opportunity to spend a little time with The Railsplitters on KGNU's Old Grass Gnu Grass show. They shared a few live tunes and spoke with Brian Eyster about how they collaborate as a band and their developing sound. Their first release is out and showcases their balanced and emerging style.
