Tyler Childers Live on Red Barn Radio I & II

Hickman Holler Records

June 29, 2018

Genre: Country

Vinyl LP pressing.

Tyler Childers is the finest songwriter to emerge from the Bluegrass State since Chris Knight and should be mentioned in the same breath as Fifth on the Floor, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapelton, and others who are currently leading the most notable renaissance of Kentucky music since Keith Whitley and Ricky Skaggs took Music City by storm 30 years ago. Previously released as two separate EPs, Live on Red Barn Radio I & II is now available on a single LP for the first time. Volume I was recorded live on May 29, 2013 and Volume II was recorded live on November 7, 2013, both at Kentucky's legendary Red Barn Radio show in Lexington, KY. Live on Red Barn Radio I & II features six original songs (including "Whitehouse Road" as heard on Tyler's latest full length, Purgatory) and two covers. (Review from FYE)

Girl Who Loves Horses
By Lyn Hacker
Released: 1 March 2010
Genre: Bluegrass

A gathering of friends accompanied singer-songwriter Lyn Hacker in the recording studio - weaving her original compositions into a warm blanket that wraps the listener in a genuine appreciation of country roots through songs written from the heart. Elements of reflection are penned into lyrical thoughts as each song captures the specific mood Hacker wants to share with her audience. Her down to earth writing and warm vocals form an honest quality that is lacking in much of today’s  mainstream music. There’s a wealth of wisdom written into each of Hacker’s gentle stories. You’ll come across several gems as you delve into this impressive twelve song disc - neatly tucked inside an inspired package. “Springtime in Kentucky” won the American Songwriter Magazine award.

“Girl Who Loves Horses - a pause that refreshes through genuine songs written from the heart.” (c) Mark’s Online Music Source

John Lilly Live on Red Barn Radio
By John Lilly
Released: Spring 2006
Genre: Roots Country
The Roots Music Authority, est. 1995

One hour of uncomplicated pleasure from John Lilly, a consummate musician who seems way too nice to be in show business. There’s no edge, no inflated ego, just a finely honed skill as musician, performer and writer. Listening to him on this disc, or seeing him on stage, is like seeing your favorite uncle good- humoredly take off his working jacket, pick up his guitar and play a few well loved songs to while away the evening. There’s generosity of spirit in his performance and a really deep love for the music he plays.

Taking Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams as his starting point, John delves into the roots of mountain/country music, plays old tunes and songs that are familiar without necessarily being standards and then mixes in his own songs which generally sound like old standards themselves. He operates in what might be called the Heritage Folk scene, where generally much is made of faithfulness to the tradition and there's a lot of po-faced seriousness about, but John Lilly never falls into that. His warmth, sincerity and, above all, his genial good humour make him an entirely likeable performer. A couple of his own songs featured here are typical of his gentle humour: A Little Yodel Goes A Long Way and Roadkill are both going to make you chuckle. 'Roadkill's' pay-off line is 'I'm the roadkill on the highway of your heart' - wry, rather than bitter, at the end of the affair.

The range of his enthusiasm takes him from Jimmie Rodgers and country blues through the mountain folk tradition right up to where Hank Williams morphs into rock and roll but when he takes Rod Stewart's Gasoline Alley and makes it sound like a jig for a dirt floor barn dance, then you know this man's ears are wide open for a good tune, wherever it comes from. His guitar and mandolin playing manages to be precise and relaxed at the same time, an easy pleasure on the ear.

"A remarkably warm and accessible recording, Generations has enough going on inside it to repay repeated listenings!"

"Even those – count me among them – who ordinarily prefer more basic approaches will be hard-pressed to resist this amiably dazzling recording’s generous supply of charms."

Read the complete review! Bluegrass Works, Jerome Clark

"Don's fluid guitar work has direct ties with the music of his family with strong influences from blues, jazz, new acoustic directions and bluegrass."

"Danny Williams' mandolin playing is exciting, melodic and played with the crisp rhythm of a thoroughbred.”

"Danny Cecil's bass playing is a marvelous foundation for the group's rhythm sound. He easily moves up and down the fingerboard with flowing riffs that are contrasted by the guitar and mandolin. A great acoustic album for a rainy afternoon, a rocker and a porch."
