We’ve reached the end of the line for 2015! Hard to believe another twelve months of Trail Mix has passed us by!Somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 songs have been featured here this year, along with scores of artist interviews, ticket giveaways, and insights into the national roots music scene.All in all, it has been a hell of a year and, in keeping with that spirit, it would only be right to bid farewell 2015 with a bang.That means, of course, another collection of killer tunes.Featured this month is Leftover Salmon, the the Colorado godfathers of the jamgrass scene, who released High Country, there most recent record, just last week. Though the line up has seen some transition since the band’s inception in 1989, Vince Herman and Drew Emmitt – the driving forces behind the band since its earliest days – remain committed to the band’s singular purpose; hard driving, genre bending acoustic music. Be sure to check out “Gold Hill Line” on this month’s mix.Also on this month’s mix are Jordy Searcy, who appeared on NBC’s The Voice in 2014, and longtime blues master Bobby Rush, who recently released a four disc compilation chronicling his fifty years in the blues game.Be sure to check out brand new tracks from King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Wild Child, Barrule, The Secret Storm, The Black Ships, Ric Todd, Husky Rescue, Peter Case, Moa Holmsten, Ben Millburn, Pete Lanctot, Narc Twain, and The Paperboys.Stay tuned to the Trail Mix blog this month. Upcoming are chats with Town Mountain, up and coming old time musician Sam Gleaves, and Hot Buttered Rum, along with New Years resolutions from musicians and music fans from across the region.And, of course, get out and buy some of the music from these great artists.
