We’ve previously mentioned the new CD from Three Ring Circle, a side project for Blue Highway dobro man Rob Ickes, Kentucky Thunder fiddler/mandolinist Andy Leftwich, and Nashville studio bass session stalwart Rob Pomeroy.
Rob emailed yesterday to let us know that they recently appeared on the Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, and that both high quality audio and streaming Windows Media video of the entire show can be found on the show’s web site. They are featured on show #390 and perform a gypsy jazz-inspired piece called Made In France and Rob’s lovely take on Stevie Wonder’s Isn’t She Lovely, both from the new CD. They also spend some time discussing the new project and their “regular” jobs with host, Michael Jonathon, and jam a bit with the other show guest, Stray Cat’s bassist Lee Rocker.
Rob mentioned that he played his new Wechter/Scheerhorn Rob Ickes model resonator guitar on the show’s opening song with Michael Jonathon.
If you scroll through the list of shows in the Woodsongs archive, you see a number of other bluegrass and bluegrass-related acts, such as Wildfire, Cherryholmes, Alison Brown Quartet, The Duhks and many others. It is recorded and webcast each week from the Kentucky Theater in Lexington, KY.
