We're calling ourselves The Little Brothers this time around.  We sound pretty much the same as the Ganesha Ramblers, though:

Which is to say, sounds great! Liked it on Y'allTube and like it here. I was playing along with Sittin' On Top of the World the other day and my brain finally dealt with going to the C early.  :P

Joe and Pat alone will make it a terrific show, that's for sure.  Last time I saw them at jalopy was when they opened for Spider John Koerner.  Pat and Joe's set was among the most profound musical experiences I've ever had - their playing is both nuanced and powerful, traditional and fresh.  These are not two guys wearing vintage clothing and playing rehearsed arrangements...  they literally breathe this stuff.

Suzy - I wish I could be in Austin for that Texas Sheiks show...  there's really no chance the bunch of you could even do one teensy east coast appearance?

It was a smokin' hot show last night ladies and germs. I unfortunately missed most of Pat and Joe, but what I did hear was righteous yes, yes, yes. Frank & Kim did a boilerplate nonstop juggernaught of a set of uniformly excellent quality.
What backwater of the blues didn't they touch on?  My favorites (limited recall here folks) included Rolling Mill Blues, BLJ's Corrina, A Sleepy John Estes song which I think may have been Black Maddy, and too many more to mention.
Kim tore up that fiddle and acquitted herself wonderfully at this her Maiden stage voyage. They were joined on Mandolin by Mike Jessup who was also slammin' good. Arrangements were tight, right and out of sight. The audience
dug the show alot.

Damn, wish I could've been there. 
Maybe some time the Texas Sheiks will play in the northeast, but first we have to play in the south (Austin) and west (Berkeley). What we need is some festival or big-time concert series that would be willing to foot the bill for all the travel to NY.  The CD has been getting pretty good airplay, and is inching its way up the Americana chart, much to my horror-amusement-astonishment. 
I sure love the kind of old-time blues string band music that you all were playing at the Jalopy!!

Well Cleoma since the market doesn't seem willing or capable of supplying enough venues for this music to thrive from sea to sea it may be time for the UORBR (union of rural blues revivalists) to chart its own course. maybe a small college tour or a series of them. Meanwhile why don't you see to it that the folks at Le Poisson Rouge, the newish-hippish club here in New York gets a promo package from the Texas Sheiks? Jalopy would also be a place to think about.
