Blog Guelph: Have You Herd?

This picture was taken on campus, where on hoofbeats radio, this morning, we heard from the band, The Hoofbeats.

They were live in the studio, a summer or two ago, and we re-aired their appearance not just because it was so much the first time, but because they have a performance coming up in our town, at the lovely Magnolia Cafe on October 5th.

As multi-instrumentalists, with a well-developed sense of humour and musical spontaneity, their music and shows combine bluegrass, swing and jazz with some blues and twang to cook up a unique blend that even the most discerning palate will enjoy.  The core of the band is Murray Ritchie (vocals, guitar & mandolin), Ian Pattison (banjo & percussion), Brad Forwell (vocals, guitar, harmonica) and Lewis Melville (vocals, guitar, accordian, slide/pedal steel) & bass.

Wasn't the trivia about the former radio show The Hoofbeat, and the title of their band enjoyable? Not to mention the music!!  They have 3 cd's that I hope to own... and I hope you do too!

Here's some rough notes on playlist:
9:05, One With The Wind,
9:12, Carry On,
9:24, If You Were Able, Mayflower,
9:33, Missed You Again, Chris Terhune/Hoofbeats, Mayflower
9:47, Slippery Slope of Love?, 3rd album
9:52, Stuck In The Mud,

You can listen back in the archive at CFRU.ca. - just choose hoofbeats from the program schedule.
- Enjoy!
