Americana Highway #79 - June 25, 2006

Girls with Guitars, and Banjos, and Fiddles, and Mandolins, and Pianos, even a Girl with an Upright Bass! That's right...this week on WIVK's Americana Highway it's some very talented women who not only sing...but also play fantastic bluegrass, Americana and true country music!
And just who is that girl playing the upright bass? Why it's Jack's very special in-studio guest: Amy LaVere! You may have seen her in the Johnny Cash movie "Walk The Line"...or if you're familiar with the Memphis music scene you might know of her work with the band The Tramps. But she's got a brand new cd out on Archer Records and she'll be stopping by and bringing with her some of the great new music off of it...and she'll share a few stories as well.
As always, if there's a song you'd like Jack to play on The Americana Highway - this week or any week - just send an email with your request to:
Oh and this just in: Now you can listen to the show right here on! Yep, just look over to the panel on the right and you'll find our new "Listen On Line" section where you can listen to streams of both this week's show and last week's show.
