Your #TinPodShuffle for Sunday, March 11 , 2018:

Your #TinPodShuffle for Sunday, Feb 25 , 2018 features some big, big names but one of them’s a secret.


Gotta open with a curling song this week, #amiright? It was also a good week for music: I finally got to see Josh Ritter, THE Mark Erelli played with him, and another guy who wears his heart on his sleeve, Leeroy Stagger, opened.
After that, how’s about a 10-song American-Canadian who dat? Whoever it is plays on them all and I’ll wait til below to tell you in case you want to guess.
Who dat answer: Amos Garrett played session guitar and trombone for, like, everybody. It’s his guitar on these tracks by Anne Murray, Emmylou Harris, Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Maria Muldaur (the famous solo), Paul Butterfield’s Better Days and Rodney Crowell, and his trombone with Bonnie Raitt and Jerry Garcia. He was also lead guitarist in Ian & Sylvia’s Great Speckled Bird and co-wrote one song, this one, with Ian.

After representative cuts from my favourite albums last week plus new songs throughout the year’s weekly shuffle, 2017 should be pretty well covered. I have troubles moving on, though, so let’s finish off January with a few more odds and sods.
