Trail Mix September 2012

first_imgIn 1927, Ralph Peer’s journey to Bristol, a sleepy town tucked away in the mountains of Northeast Tennessee, seemed somewhat unremarkable.  With the simple goal of recording the sounds of the Appalachians, few would have predicted that Peer’s trip would herald a seismic shift in modern music, becoming what many call the Big Bang of country music.Now, the third week in September serves as a reminder of Peer’s mission, which opened the world’s ears to such luminaries as The Carter Family and Jimmie Rodgers, among many others.  The Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion draws music fans from around the globe to celebrate Bristol’s role in the birth of modern country music.This month’s Trail Mix features artists performing at the Reunion, taking place September 14th-16th.Leading off the mix is a track from Folk Soul Revival, easily one of the favorite bands in the Southwest Virginia/Northeast Tennessee region and long a festival darling.  “D’Railed” comes from the band’s latest record, Prompting The Dapperness.Featured are brand new tracks from Josh Phillips Folk Festival, Angel Snow, Zach Deputy, Uncle Lucius, The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, Tift Merritt, James Justin & Co., Cahalen Morrison and Eli West, Spirit Family Reunion, Anthony Keys, Humming House, and  This Mountain.Also in the mix are tunes from Dale Jett & Hello Stranger,  A Great Disaster, Chris Rose, Sol Driven Train, Eric Brace & Last Train Home, Pert Near Sandstone, William Walter & Tucker Rogers, The Grass Cats, and Paper Bird.This mix is representative of the diverse line up of the Reunion.  Check out the complete line up and schedule at www.bristolrhythm.com!Download Trail Mix September 2012 here.Click here to open the player in a new window.Download more music from month’s past here!

We must learn how to survive a disaster

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionLet me ask you some questions: In case of a tornado, what do you do? Where do you go? In case of an earthquake, where do you go? In case of a nuclear bomb, what do you do? How do you retrieve your kids to keep them sale and uncontaminated? How do you get from your job to your vehicle and from your vehicle to your home. How to you find safety from fallout? How and when do you decontaminate? What happens if you have to leave your home? Where do you go? What do you need to survive? How do you survive looting?Remember these threats are real and it’s going to happen — it’s  a matter of when.The main thing is to be prepared. Don’t depend on first responders. They also have families. If prepared, you have a 99.9 percent chance of surviving disasters. Does Gov. Andrew Cuomo have any ideas? I don’t think so. You will have TV and radio warnings, but without being prepared of what to do or where to go could cause chaos, and you will be killing each other on the road. The idea is to stay calm and know what to do before it happens. All you anti-gunners will not survive. You won’t have any defense against looters to protect you and your family from rape, theft and deaths.Claude Rizzicone Jr.SchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesSchenectady department heads: Budget cutbacks would further stress already-stretched departmentsEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsSchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Motorcyclist injured in Thursday afternoon Schenectady crashlast_img read more
