  • Brush Fire – Country Music

    In the 1980’s I spent a few years playing country music. Here are some old demos and la live show   In the 80-90’s I played in a cattle car full of Country Western Bands. Not like the modern Country music you hear on the radio today. We did a lot of Outlaw and Old Thymy country. I must have played every C&W joint in Mass and NH. The old Nashville North in Laconia to the Blue Star in Saugus with all kinds of acts. Mac Macniel and Soultown Country, Dianne Lincon, Liz Bordo, Rick Plant, Hal Eddy just to name a few. I took the house Bass Player chair from Bobby Sargent at the Meadow Lounge in Chelmsford MA when he left int he late 80’s. Here are a few tracks from a smokin 3 piece I played with called “Brushfire”

  • “Ragtime” Jack Radcliffe and the New Viper Review

    I met Jack Radcliffe in 1978 in Callis ME. I can not begin to tell how crazy a time that was! I knew Jack for about a week before he asked me to be best man at his wedding. You can find Jack at Wepecket Island Records We did this at MT Philo VT in 1979. Jack has been performing for more than 30 years. He is a master of traditional country blues and ragtime & stride piano, and a powerful singer/songwriter, as well as songs from the “Great American songbook.” He also accompanies himself on the guitar and fiddle.Jack’s performances always include a lot of uplifting wit, historical anecdotes and connections with local lore, wherever he performs. His background in journalism amplifies a lifelong quest for the cultural framework of his music and the places he performs. Jack was inducted into the Old-Time Music Association Hall of Fame in 2014.He was a fixture on the coffeehouse circuit in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. His band ‘The New Viper Revue’ pushed the genre envelopes of blues, folk, country, rock ‘n’ roll and jazz from 1972 -1976. Jack resumed his solo career in 1977, then teamed up with reed player Al Oliveira in 1983.He retired from the music business, except for occasional local engagements, in 1987 to raise his sons and work as a newspaper editor. Now he’s back to his music fulltime, directing Wepecket Island Records, performing and recording his own music, producing other artists’ recordings and touring nationally.
