The “Lord Of The Rings Show”
A long Neil Young song so you can get a beverage and find a chair, then Bo Hansson’s epic album in its entirety. Ramsey Lewis takes us gently back from Shire and Raccoon Eyes gets us to Rawhide and another working day.

Metalgrass pickin’ with the Dustbowl Cavaliers, a toss of the dice, shakin’ the bush with Willie Jones, an Andean interlude, a merchant sailor’s song, a Fisherman’s Dream, around an Acadian campfire in the Ontario woods, that ole Cajun moon, a bit of Greek to get our appetites up for supper in Montreal, a tribute to the Boy From The Country, a blind man plays the oud, a rainy August night thumbing to Ft. Lewis, an Indian Sunset ending with a hound dog in the back of a pick-up truck heading down Highway 12.

We start off with a gold-mining song with a flute and pedal steel guitar then jump over to Europe where Ian Anderson shows just what a man can do with a flute before floating on the Sea of Japan to soothing koto and shaku-hachi sounds. Freddie Aguilar tells us “There Is Time Yet” and some prairie boys tell us there is “No Time.” We pop up in St Petersburg, Russia and hear an indie band before the unmistakable accordion riffs of Louisiana carry us back to North America. We encounter a Big Boned Gal from southern Alberta and hear an Aboriginal man’s story before being soothed to the bone by Najma Akhtar. We get our souls wet in the South Canadian River of Texas and finish up in Surrey, B.C. listening to some delicious flamenco.

We kick it off in Austin, Texas, visit the future, drop in on an old Lynn Valley friend, walk the piney woods, hear a raccoon sing(and his daddy), visit the Elk & Green Rivers, play a tribute to a Texas man I knew, sit in an Irish pub with the old folks, hear Chet Atkins after a couple of Coronas, get introduced to South East Indian London Country Music, ask a Question, make a judgement, imagine the pretty gals of Cali, Colombia and finish off with a damn good joke from right here in Lillooet.

Some good advice on war, its causes and its aftermath by a few different artists starts us off before we head down to Beaumont, Texas with Ronnie Milsap and into the swamp with Gatemouth Brown running from “loup garou”. The boy down the road leads us to Japan for a break before the 2000 blues. Bevis Frond rallies us back to honor the brave men and women who refuse to kill for other people’s agendas with a Burrito Bros. nod to Vancouver, B.C. Next we find ourselves on a grassy riverbank in Ireland and fall asleep with visions of a Poinciana tree. We wake up and hear about the disappearing goat.

A Tennessean’s tribute to Texas on the Sugar Road to Punta del Faro. A jump across the Straight of Gibralter to Morocco where we meet Mustang Sally at a Pow-wow, drink blackberry wine with some Greeks and Cambodians. Advice for fair and tender maids, getting old in the bayou listening to Freddie Aguilar, a wee bit of church for Easter, trying to make it in the big city and finishing up with a South African line dance.
