I started the interview with Eddie Ray Buzzini, from Mooresville, NC, and now I am finishing with Ettore Buzzini. Eddie Ray was the Stage name that he chose, only because people had trouble pronouncing his given name, Ettore, pronounced (Ee-tore-aa). Also, he is proud of his Swiss Italian Heritage.

I may be one of the last people from The Bluegrass Jamboree to realize that Anthony Howell played all the musical instrument parts, on all the songs, in his new album ‘Hold Back The Dawn.’ The songs were written by a variety of Traditional, older, and more contemporary writers, including himself.

Even though I was very familiar with their videos and recordings, from following them on facebook, youtube, and The Bluegrass Jamboree; the quality of their sound in person, was extra […]

Today, I received my pre-release copy of the CD album, ‘My Ozark Mountain Home‘, by The Petersens. Their fans have waited about a year for this release, and I am here to tell you, it was worth the wait. The ‘title track’ is a beautiful Petersen’s original written by Katie. The rest of the album, […]

The new CD album, ‘Stories of Valor’, by Roger Cline, is more than a collection of songs in an album. It is truly an anthology of various different short stories, telling of the author’s life experiences and stories heard along the way. Before getting to any details, I do want to say that I found […]
