Don't let Todd Snider fool you

As it turns out, Todd Snider has everyone fooled. 

The Nashville singer-songwriter who wears his hippie stoner persona proudly is actually a workaholic who released two albums in the first four months of the year. “Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables” is a scathing indictment of the current state of the union, while “Time as We Know It,” is a loving tribute to Jerry Jeff Walker, the man who changed the course of Snider’s life.

Monday morning notebook

Mindy Smith's new album arrives in stores Tuesday.

Dar Williams invited more than 200 folks over Saturday night for a spirited evening of songs and stories.

In lieu of hosting at her house, which is in New York, Williams  turned the Redmoor in Mount Lookout into a suitable stand-in as she played eight of the 10 tunes from “In the Time of Gods,” and six others with the help of keyboard player Bryn Roberts and guitarist Josh Kaler. 

The music was certainly the centerpiece, but it was some unexpected moments that lent the night its homey feel.

Scott Toepfer

We didn't find the album between the ditches, that's for sure.  The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band is back with a brand spankin' new album titled, Between the Ditches.  If you folks at home were worried, there is no need.  It's packed full of that same gritty, tough, distinct voice perfectly polished by smooth original guitar that we all know and love.
