Yesterday....went to the SwampStomp in Tally....
mostly a mini Folk Festival...as most of these bands played at the last Florida Folk Festival in Live Oak.
To me...the act that stole the show was a singular "band"
Dylan Ragpicker Allen .....an 18 year old picker in the Mississippi style of the Blues. He built all of his instruments, including 3-4 guitars, a drum and a cymbal. He used anything he could find for the instruments....thus the name "Ragpicker".
He reminds me of the North Mississippi All-stars in style and song selection. He played a 6 string, three string and even a one string guitar as well as a banjo that he built.
He only played a 30 minute set but he is trying to add to his repetoire.
I wish we could get him in touch with someone that could really further his career...as he is quite good.
He has some music on YouTube....but it is not well recorded....if you want to give him a listen. He is much better than what is on line.
I am going to try and get him a local gig as well as a spot on tv.
If anyone knows anyone......BeachBob????

Go on YouTube and type in Ragpicker Allen...his stuff will come up...
Note that it is not well recorded...but I am trying to get him on a local station this week....with better recording.
Alos, note...he is only 18 years old....but plays old style.

I'll check him out.

----

Speaking of shows, last Saturday we went to see the *other* Brother Ray: Ray LaMontagne. He played the Fillmore in Miami Beach. Opener was Jenny Lewis, formerly with Rilo Kiley. Opener for Jenny was the Belle Brigade, a sister / brother outfit who are also anchoring Ray's current touring band.

Belle Brigade had a short half hour set... typical for being first on a triple bill. The band is led by sister Barbara Gruska on drums and vocals, ably assisted by brother Ethan on guitar and telepathic harmony vocals. Some really nice power pop tuneage, and they sounded like they could easily knock out 90min of worthy song smithing. As it was, they left the stage far sooner than any of us wanted them to. This, on balance, is a good thing. I hope to hear more of them.

Jenny Lewis was compelling as well. I'm not familiar with Rilo Kiley at all, yet somehow I recognized a few of the tunes anyways. Funny how that works. Jenny was assured in her song craft, as well as her delivery. Her hour set was well paced and impressive, as was her band.

Finally, Ray took the stage... he ran through nearly all of his current release, Supernova. Some might have grumbled about his setting aside the troubadour / country stylings for the more rocking and downright trippy tunes held in Supernova. But not me; it was so well executed that Ray seemed not at all out of place with his new stylings. Several past catalog favorites like Beg, Steal or Borrow and Jolene were met with thunderous approval. But this is NOT the Ray of five years ago... Ray is showing he can take on whatever he likes. Indeed, a review of his albums shows a continual evolving. He might just be achieving a career like Paul Simon's, one in which 'chameleon' is the best way to describe him, and the casual listener can be assured of musical excellence, whatever sonic avenue he takes. We should be so lucky as to have more like him.

A fine evening. And a bonus for me, finding a couple new and worthy acts.
