Patty Griffin Live on SiriusXM’s The Bridge

This weekend, Patty Griffin is a guest on the Village Folk Show on The Bridge, SiriusXM CH. 32. While I’ll feature a clip of her interview with SiriusXM’s Mary Sue Twohy, if you want to hear the full special, tune in this Sunday at 10 pm ET / 7 PT to hear the special about her new self-titled album.

Echo in the Canyon Gear Up for Opening Weekend

How often do you think about how geography shapes music?  This weekend, the film Echo in the Canyon premieres in Los Angeles. The film explores that ‘California sound’ that came out Laurel Canyon in the mid-60s. You know, when folk met the electric guitar? The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas played a huge role in that sound. The film features Jakob Dylan, who uncovers wonderful details about the scene from conversations with Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr, Michelle Phillips, Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Roger McGuinn, and Jackson Browne.  At the same time, modern-day musicians like Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor, and Norah Jones talk about how artists like Tom Petty inspired their music. The film is said to feature Tom Petty’s final taped interview. I’ll play you a song from the soundtrack, also out this weekend; Echo in the Canyon’s cover of “Go Where You Wanna Go” featuring Jakob Dylan. The rest of the soundtrack features covers from the era courtesy of Beck, Cat Power, Josh Homme, Fiona Apple, Norah Jones, Eric Clapton, Regina Spektor, Neil Young, and Stephen Stills.
