This episode of Pastures of Plenty features old songs, new songs, blues and folk-rock. You’ll hear some cool covers of songs from Bob Dylan’s 1967 classic LP “John Wesley Harding”, some songs to get you in the mood for Cinco de Mayo, Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal’s earliest collaborations in 1965, when Ry Cooder was 17, and their latest collaboration from their brand-new album “Get on Board”, cool music from the Midwest, and finishing up with my favorite songs about tornadoes.
Featured artists include Michael Hedges, Sandy Denny, The Texicana Mamas, Tex-Mex accordion great Flaco Jimenez, The Texas Tornadoes, Ry Cooder and Taj Mahal, Carrie Newcomer, Milwaukeeans Peter Mulvey and Willy Porter, Guy Clark, a student from my Meteorology 101 class (a great singer and songwriter), and Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer.
