Under the Covers with The Shady Groove: Podcast #130



We’re back with another of the famous Theme-Time Radio shows from The Shady Groove. Today we go under the covers and explore the righteous genre of cover songs. I absolutely love when bands cover other bands. It is the highest form of flattery for a musician. Its the ultimate tribute. I love to see the variety of different directions an artist can take in recreating a favorite song. And then there’s the good, bad, and ugly. Some covers can rival or even surpass the original. Some can not even come close to being as good as the original. Either way, its an entertaining genre that will continue to delight forever..So enjoy this edition of The Shady Groove Podcast. Listen loud, sing along, have fun. Live it, love it!

Podcast 122: Following the Sound – Folk Fest Past Present and Future

Sunset at fest


It’s been two weeks since the last notes of Los Lobos filled the air up at The Old Poole Farm in Schwenksville, and I’m still thinking about it. The 55th anniversary of the Philadelphia Folk Fest, the longest continuously running folk fest in North America, has come and gone; but to the Fest faithful, it’s memories live on for years….Or until the next Fest hits in mid August 2017. This year brought some amazing musicians and collaborations together for a spectacular 3 days of audible pleasure. From Del and Dawg to The Sheepdogs to Anderson East and the Lone Bellow covering Mariah Carey’s ‘Baby’, it was a great time had by all involved. So for this weeks’ Shady Groove Podcast, I’ve put together a great set of music from Folk Fest artists past and present…and probably future. Sit back, relax and enjoy.
