New on The Show

Shari Rowe
“Family Gathering” -  “Fitting for the season and it gets my vote” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

Genre: Country/Pop Country/Bluegrass
Record Label: Lamon Records Nashville

With her summer anthem “Moonshine,” Lamon Records recording artist Shari Rowe introduced herself and intrigued country music fans through a clever play on words and catchy melody that stuck with you. 

With the summer months now behind us, Rowe takes us on journey as she reminisces back to those one of a kind family get-togethers through the picture painting lyrics of her new single “Family Gathering.” The acoustic country/bluegrass base provides the perfect accompaniment as it wraps around you and pulls you into the lyrics. 

As you close your eyes and listen, the picture clearly unfolds. She touches on the food and drinks singing of potato salad, her cousin’s homemade pie, and more than just lemonade in those Dixie cups. She also digs deeper into the people gathered and their personalities such as Uncle Jerry being late, her cousin showing up in a little dress with a brand new guy, grandpa talking about how things should be the way they were back in 53, and her brother Joe, who shipped out a year ago, calling home.
New Single “Family Gathering” (Lamon Records) was sent to Radio Nov 14, 2015 with an Impact date Nov 23, 2015

The Slocan Ramblers
“Mississippi Shore” – “The final cut is my pick” - Marie Crichton BBC Radio Shropshire

The Slocans are: Frank Evans (Banjo), Adrian Gross (Mandolin), Darryl Poulsen (Guitar), Alastair Whitehead (Bass),
Emerging Artist Award”- Edmonton Folk Fest, 2015
“I love it – smokin’ bluegrass!”  BBC Radio

The Slocan Ramblers are Canada’s young bluegrass band to watch. Rooted in the tradition, fearlessly creative, and possessing a bold, dynamic sound, The Slocans (2015 Edmonton Folk Fest Emerging Artist Award recipients), have quickly become a leading light of Canada’s roots music scene, built on their reputation for energetic live shows, impeccable musicianship and their uncanny ability to convert anyone within earshot into a lifelong fan.

On their new album, Coffee Creek (2015) The Slocan Ramblers blend lightning fast and devilishly intricate instrumentals with the sawdust-thick vocals of singer Frank Evans, who takes lead on songs ranging from rowdy old-time numbers like “Groundhog,” to a Dustbowl classic like Woody Guthrie’s “Pastures of Plenty.” “Toronto audiences don’t respond to a clean, polished Nashville sound,” tune composer and mandolinist Adrian Gross explains. “They dig a lot of energy in their music, a rowdy bar vibe. They’re hard to win over.” But The Slocan Ramblers have won them over, moving from a young ensemble of bluegrass pickers to one of the best known Canadian roots bands. They’ve done this by staying true to the roots of the music, not seeking to revive anything but rather to tap the rough and rowdy heart of the music.
Coffee Creek was produced by the band’s friend and mentor Chris Coole (The Foggy Hogtown Boys), a well-known banjo player and community leader in Toronto’s bluegrass and old-time scenes.

The Houston Bernard Band
Home Town: Boston, MA
The band was formed in 2013 when Bernard, a well-established solo performer, crossed paths with an all-star cast of supporting musicians. “It just clicked,” says Bernard “I am very blessed to share the stage with these amazing musicians and people. We each come from diverse musical backgrounds and when we play it just fires up on all cylinders. The new album is all about capturing the sound and creativity of us as a band.”

HOUSTON BERNARD: Born in Oklahoma, Houston is a direct descendant of famous gunfighter George “Bittercreek” Newcomb, a member of the infamous Wild Bunch and a most-wanted man in the 1890s.
More recently, Houston's father and uncle played in country bands with stars like Tanya Tucker and Sleepy Labeef.
The group quickly gained a following in the Boston area of “not so typical” Country Music fans, earning them a nomination by the 2015 New England Music Awards for Country Act of the Year. The band played over 100 shows in 2014, opening for Jake Owen, Eli Young Band, Josh Thompson, Cadillac 3, Delbert McClinton, Scotty McCreery, 38 Special and Pure Prairie League.
The Houston Bernard Band is a must see! The bad boy of Boston country has assembled a group of musicians that bring vitality and grit to modern country. Their brand of original country music is fresh and hard hitting. Houston delivers one crowd pleasing country anthem after another with both polish and passion, while the band cooks up the good stuff; tight, modern country beats, soaring harmonies and expertly crafted solos. The Houston Bernard Band will move you! Nominated for Country Act of the Year in 2015 and Having opened for Jake Owen, Eli Young Band, Josh Thompson, Scotty McCreery, and Pure Prairie League, and performing at colleges, theaters, festivals, fairs, and New England’s most respected country nightclubs, the band is enjoying regional success while gearing up to rock the nation, one town at a time. With down-home sensibility and plenty of rock and roll energy, the Houston Bernard Band has re-imagined modern country with a new philosophy; country music is better raw than fried!
This powerful full-length debut Knockin' Boots from the up-and-coming New England Country band is sophisticated yet fun, featuring compelling and infectious songwriting that captures stellar vocals and intricate instrumental performances with high production values.
