Podcast: Yawpers on KRFC 88.9FM Live@Lunch Radio Show

The Yawpers is  “A stripped down, brazen rock and roll band from Colorado, accompanied by over-driven acoustic guitars and a trap kit. Inspired by Whitman’s promise to “sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world,” the Yawpers have created a sound that is equal parts frenetic, earnest, and menacing, all while bringing together disparate pieces of the American musical lexicon. Though less than two years old, the Yawpers have played over 200 shows on both coasts, and everywhere in between, and have shared the stage with: the Heartless Bastards, the Black Angels, Cracker, the Nadas, the Supersuckers, Quiet Corral, the Delta Spirit, Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, the Stone Foxes, Joe Buck and many others. Following the release of an EP in 2011, their critcally well received LP, “Capon Crusade”, released in late 2012, debuted at #1 on the Colorado Music Charts, and is now in its second printing.”

Led by dynamic young singer-songwriter Nate Cook and guitarist Jesse Parmet, emerging Boulder trio The Yawpers (named after Walt Whitman’s promise to “sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world”) recall a grittier version of Wilco, with as much raw country sensibility as twisted indie imagination.

Equally akin to Deer Tick, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and Elvis, The Yawpers give a fresh blend of alt-country and rock ‘n’ roll. Their debut full-length album, Capon Crusade, is available online and in stores.”

Podcast: Escape Goats on KRFC 88.9FM Live@Lunch Radio Show

“Joe Schicke, Marty Rein & Steve Amedee of  The Escape Goats bring us  all original rock and soul…like a goat with a head full of steam charging across the field.  They meld their rock with blues, pop, ox tail funk, and country soul.   Joe Schicke writes most of the music, plays all the guitar and sings. He is known for his work with Reba Russell and Minivan Blues Band. The crop of tunes he wrote for this recording range from jug band-boogie to garage rock, and provide a sometimes hard-boiled, often impulsive twist on well-tread blues themes.  Steve Amedee is the drummer for the Subdudes and the Three Twins. He also sings his bum off.  Marty Rein is The Bass-man. He plays with the Three Twins as well. “

Marc Black is an eclectic folk-rocker who carries the Woodstock tradition of dealing with life with all its social and political challenges…one song at a time. He’s been hailed by noted folk artist Happy Traum for his “timeless” songs featuring “deep grooves, excellent playing [and] top-notch guitar and vocals.”

He’s performed and recorded with many luminaries including Pete Seeger, Art Garfunkel and Rick Danko.  Levon Helm also invited Marc to play one of the Midnight Rambles.

Marc’s song subjects range from his love for Rachel Maddow, good coffee and just about everything in between.  His fingerstyle blues is reminiscent of Mississippi John Hurt and Lightnin’ Hopkins.  And his recent CD, Pictures of the Highway, reached #6 on the Folk DJ Chart.

Traveling with his gps and his Guild D40, Marc spends most of his time on the road— playing festivals, clubs, arts centers, libraries and house concerts.  He was named Folk Artist of the Year on ABC Radio’s Fame Games and was a finalist in the prestigious Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Competition.  Sometime a Spark, his song about Mohamed Bouazizi and the Arab Spring, caused an international stir that led to an interview on Tunisian State Radio.

He’s currently completing a duet CD entitled Champions of Love with piano great, Warren Bernhardt.  (http://www.warrenbernhardt.com/).

While still in high school, his band, the Blades of Grass, reached the top forty and performed along side the biggest acts of the day including the Doors, Van Morrison and Neil Diamond. He has since recorded more than a dozen CDs including one ‘pick hit’ in Billboard Magazine and another that was recognized as a ‘minor masterpiece’ by famed music producer John Hammond Sr.

In the 1980s, Marc won the American Library Association Award for Best Children’s Album for producing American Children, a collaboration with such talented artists as Richie Havens, Taj Mahal and Maria Muldaur.  ASCAP has featured Marc in performance at the Sundance Film Festival and several of his Youtube videos have been viewed more than 50,000 times!

Over the past couple of years, he’s occasionally turned to a more topical songwriting style.  One tune, No Fracking Way – recorded with John Sebastian and Eric Weissberg (of “Dueling Banjos” fame), and some 100 Woodstock, NY citizens — has been sung at rallies as far away as South Africa, Ireland and Australia.”

Podcast: Michael Kirkpatrick on KRFC 88.9FM Live@Lunch-One Hour LIVE Radio Show

“Singer. Songwriter. Folk and Rock musician. Michael Kirkpatrick is a modern day minstrel. He sings about nature, dreams and sensuality. The original music comes to you straight from Michael’s soul–unfiltered, passionate and true. Michael often covers other artists material, but only after finding that special character that makes the song his own.

Michael’s main instruments of choice to accompany his rich bass voice include the acoustic guitar and mandolin–although he has been seen with electric guitars, lap steel guitar, the sitar, hammered dulcimer and electric mandolin. Aside from performing as a solo artist, you can catch Michael on stage with his Folkadelic Rock band The Holler!”
