Heartland favorite son Jeff Black returns to the Tasty Brew Music Radio Show this Friday August 26! His writings have been described in the Allmusic as “impressionistic songs that are smart without forgetting the emotional undercurrent.” His songs have been covered by Alison Krauss, Waylon Jennings, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas and BlackHawk. Black also co-wrote the title track Circles Around Me with Sam Bush for his 2009 Grammy nominated album Circles Around Me. Black has released 10 of his own self-produced albums and tours widely. He is also recognized as a digital music pioneer by NPR for his podcast, Black Tuesdays. Jeff has always been a staunch supporter of KKFI and will be performing at this weekend’s Crossroads Music Festival!
Mixed into the brew of new releases (Forrest McCurren, Allison Russell, Will Sexton) and classic Roots Music favorites are selections from artists on this weekend’s line up for the Kaw River Roots Festival in Lawrence, Kansas August 27 at Abe and Jake’s Landing.
