I love writing for and helping edit okra magazine! In the next issue, issue 8, I will have three articles, including a story on one of my favorite bands, the subdudes. Should hit the stands around the end of August, first week of September - at all good Barnes and Noble stores throughout the south. Same for Books a Million and your better grocery stores.
As of next week I am slated to spend three days touring the Mountain Music Trail in West Virginia. The MMT is a 200 mile stretch of highway 219 that runs through 5 counties. This "trail" is a series of towns and venues that feature Bluegrass, old time, and Celtic music. This will be for a feature story in issue 9 on Heritage Music. This issue will also include my interview with slide guitar master Sonny Landreth.
There is more cool stuff on the way for issues 10 & 11 ! Look for a feature on the Southern Rock explosion that was Capricorn Records. And then a feature on a really cool new PBS show, The Good Road, debuting in April 2020.
If you go to okra magazine's FB page you will see they are giving away one free subscription per day throughout the month of August ! Go for it !
By the Way, the subdudes have their first record of new material coming out soon, either fall of 2019, or very early 2020! It is all recorded and mixed down, so count your blessings people !!!
