From Nevada City, Sticki Vikki and her Pinecones occassionally bring her coustin-in-law, guitar great Albert Lee, on stage with her. Not sure if this is happening this week, but Vikki's alt-country and rockabilly music stuff will make for a great Ramble this week.


03/21- Amee Chapman & the Big Finish

"Chapman's songs and sound paint big sky backdrops on which she casts the shadows of various folk in tender moments of melancholy and hopefulness."

With a voice that conveys both the brutal honesty of a changing California and the tender footed sweetness of its past, Amee Chapman maintains a meandering love affair with the roots of American music and with the oft times bitter realities of rural soul. Influenced by the likes of Lucinda Williams, Esther Phillips, and Jeff Tweedy, her singing, songwriting and guitar playing reflect the images of the average and eccentric: lonesome highway phone booths, sea faring whiskey rebels, city wise angeled outlaws and suicidal tattooed cowboys, all of them pent up together on a stretch of land between the past and the present.


03/28- Flat Mountain Girls

"Flat Mountain Girls - It's some of that corn-slurping old-time craziness, this time psycho-conducted from '30s Appalachia by three clogging, harmony-singing female maniacs."

Hammond's new album, Push Come to Shove, released January 23rd.
Produced by G Love.
Though Hammond may be a 40-plus-year veteran of the music business, he’s lost none of the fire and credibility that first attracted G Love to Hammond’s music: “He attacks the guitar and harmonica and vocals - he goes after it!” That passion and openness is evident in the laid-back but vital grooves of Push Comes To Shove. Hammond's voice runs the gamut from big and gruff to sly and sexy, while his stellar steel guitar work and harp playing would be at home in any gritty roadside honky tonk. If much of Hammond’s past genius has been re-imagining other’s songs, on Push Comes To Shove, he’s re-imagining and pushing the boundaries of his signature style and career while staying true to his roots. And when Hammond sings “I’m a rhythm king, baby…. / If you wanna rock and roll, I sure won’t do you wrong,” he couldn’t be more right.

"There is life after the Ramones, but who knew that its sound would be bluegrass? Tom Erdelyi, better known as Tommy Ramone, the band's first drummer (and only surviving original member), plays a mean mandolin in this new acoustic duo, singing tautly written songs much like Ramones songs, but with tenderness about the comforts and subtle politics of home life. "
