Listen To Full Audio Of Gov’t Mule’s Tribute To The Allman Brothers At Peach Fest

first_imgWith the unexpected cancellation from Gregg Allman, it was Allman Brothers’ guitarist Warren Haynes that stepped in and filled the Sunday night headlining spot at last weekend’s The Peach Music Festival. The band was given an extended time slot and made the most of it, playing a rocking Mule set before reaching into their catalog and playing an extended encore tribute to the Allman Brothers Band.The main set was no slouch, as the band worked in numerous ABB and classic rock teases through hits like “Mule,” “Thorazine Shuffle” and more. The band also welcomed out Rich Robinson for “Sometimes Salvation,” and closed out the set with “Blind Man In The Dark.”The encore saw the band welcome out Blackberry Smoke members Charlie Starr, Brandon Still and Brit Turner, opening up with “Come And Go Blues” to kept people rocking. From there, Haynes playfully called upon bassist Oteil Burbridge to sit in with the band. Burbridge was a last-minute addition to the festival, as he joined The String Cheese Incident for their Allman Family Incident set earlier in the weekend, and made his debut as part of Russo, Benevento & Burbridge. Let’s hope RB&B is here to stay. Burbridge joined the Smokin’ Mule gang for a rendition of “Dreams.” Finally, Burbridge left the stage and the band closed out the show with an energetic rendition of “Whipping Post.” Good lord!Check out full audio of the Mule set below, courtesy of Chris from Jam Buzz.Mule continues their summer tour tomorrow night, August 16th, at the Saranac Brewery in Utica, NY.

Road To Rooster Walk: Mipso Discusses Songwriting

first_img“All of a sudden there’s a song – there in your hotel room playing your guitar – and you write it, and two or three years later it will come true. It keeps you on your toes.”These words, spoken by Townes Van Zandt, support a popular notion of the songwriter in American popular culture: A rambling man, on the road with a band, playing venues both squalid and splendid, creating songs from thin air with little more than a beat up guitar, bottle of booze and hotel notepad.And there’s no doubt that countless great tunes have been written in such a manner. But there’s another question worth asking: In 2017, are most songs written that way?To find out, we spoke with six songwriters who will be at the ninth annual Rooster Walk Music & Arts Festival over Memorial Day weekend (May 25-28) in Martinsville, VA. These six artists: Paul Hoffman (Greensky Bluegrass), Anders Osborne, Andrew Marlin (Mandolin Orange), Lyle Divinksy (The Motet), Marcus King, and Wood Robinson (Mipso) bring different backgrounds, hometowns, experience levels and genres to the craft of songwriting.Perhaps unsurprisingly, they write songs in different manners. In fact, some artists create songs with very little “writing,” literally speaking. For proof, read on to learn about the surprising methods that Andrew Marlin employs when creating fresh material for Mandolin Orange. Then, catch their afternoon set at Rooster Walk 9 over Memorial Day weekend.Editor’s Note: This is the fourth story in a six-part “Road to Rooster Walk” series about the craft and process of songwriting. Previous installments featured The Motet, Greensky Bluegrass, Marcus King, Anders Osborne, and Andrew Marlin.Just like last week’s band, Mandolin Orange, Mipso hails from the stringband stronghold of Chapel Hill, N.C. But unlike their Tar Heel brethren, Mipso features four songwriters, not one.The combination of Wood Robinson (bass/vocals), Jacob Sharp (mandolin/vocals),Joseph Terrell (guitar/vocals) and Libby Rodenbough (fiddle/vocals) gives the band an embarrassment of lyrical riches, each with his or her own approach to the craft.“I know that for Jacob, he writes based on a single line that will come to mind, and spend months working around that one line. For Libby, I know that it’s a lot to do with kind of the thematic content of the verse that she writes. She usually writes when she’s driving, and a verse will come to mind,” Robinson said. “And then for Joseph, it’s kind of more on the same lines as Libby does, where he’ll have a rhythm and meter to a verse that he’s working on and then expound upon that.”For Robinson’s part, he admitted no regular process or method to his songwriting, claiming instead that his songs are realized only when “the divine light shines upon” him.But unlike Marlin or Osborne, most Mipso songs are far from finished when introduced to the rest of the band.“None of us are extremely attached to the initial blueprint of the song that was originally brought to the table,” Robinson explained. “So if someone has a good idea, it’s just a good idea. And that can make the song even better. So sometimes (the finished product) was just what the original songwriter wrote and intended. But probably much more often, to a typical listener’s ears, it would be apples and oranges, very different between what was initially performed for the rest of the band, and what the band ends up performing.”For an example, look no farther than “Momma,” off the band’s 2015 release, “Old Time Reverie.”Sharp wrote the song about his late mother, each stanza depicting a different hypothetical conversation between himself and his mother, father and brother.Sharp first presented the song, which at the time was just guitar and lead vocals, to Terrell while the band was on tour in Japan. The two proceeded to work out many of the harmonic elements of the song but left it unfinished.“Then when we got into the studio, with the help of Andrew Marlin, who was producing that record, we started adding orchestral” violin elements, and fretless electric bass, to the song, “that are really beautiful and really haunting,” Robinson explained.The finished product “wound up being much more than a single guitar with a singer – which it could live very comfortably as,” Robinson said, “but it feels like a much more band-orchestrated arrangement.”Though all four songwriters vary in their creative methods, Robinson said they share an appreciation for the craft of songwriting, and the fact that studying one’s trade will only lead to improvement.“There’s some serious truth to the fact that you learn the craft by knowing the craft,” he said. “We all listen to a lot of music and a lot of songs. And almost all of the best songs have already been written. And to recognize that and try to learn from the ones that already exist – you know, you listen to a record with headphones on and you take notes. And find those turns of phrase that you like so much. And somehow some of that sentiment will seep into your head. I know that that has helped me a lot in learning from some of my favorite songwriters. And I know that that’s how all of us think: You can’t write a good song if you haven’t heard one before.”Songwriters who influence Wood: Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon (“among the true greats.”) Jonathan Byrd, Robbie Fulks, Simon Linsteadt, Andrew Marlin, Neil Young. (“There are so many. It runs the gamut.”)Song: “Momma”last_img read more

Border checks stopped at N Ireland ports after threats

first_imgLONDON (AP) — Authorities in Northern Ireland have suspended checks on animal products and withdrawn workers from two ports after threats against border staff. The Northern Ireland government said it stopped inspections at Belfast and Larne ports “in the interests of the wellbeing of staff.” Graffiti recently appeared in the Larne area that described port staff as “targets.” Britain’s departure from the EU has brought checks on some British goods going to Northern Ireland because it shares a border with EU member Ireland. Many in Northern Ireland’s pro-British Unionist community oppose the new rules. Police said evidence suggests the threats against border staff are the work of “a number of individuals and small groups.”last_img

How to make debt work for you

first_imgMany personal-finance experts consider debt to be evil, whether they’re talking about a credit card charging 15.8 percent, an auto loan at 1.9 percent or a mortgage creating a much needed tax deduction. Their advice is always the same: Pay cash.But that’s an oversimplification. Not all debt is the same; taking it on comes down to its cost of capital and how you plan to use your borrowed funds. If the conditions are right, this leverage can help you preserve cash and put an otherwise illiquid asset to work to build your net worth.Corporations regularly use debt to optimize their capital structure—and so can you. “Apple recently capitalized on low rates by issuing $5 billion in debt, despite having $178 billion of cash on its balance sheet,” says Joe Elegante, CFA, portfolio manager at RMB Capital of Chicago. “It used the proceeds to repurchase shares of its own stock.”Why? Apple’s return on invested capital—which has averaged approximately 35 percent for the last five years—is much higher than its after-tax cost of borrowing. “Given the fact that Apple pays a $2.08 dividend (1.6 percent yield) on each share outstanding, reducing the share count actually enhances the company’s financing cash flow,” Elegante explains. continue reading » 49SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
