Newsome.Org Friday Night Music Video Hootenanny (Volume 5)

Volume 5 starts out with some great live Whiskeytown and a Phil Lesh & Friends cover of one of my favorite Ryan Adams songs, featuring vocals by Joan Osborne.  Then comes a short interview and classic number by Townes Van Zandt.  Thunderclap Newman is next, followed by live Fleetwood Mac from 1977.  A live Beatles number fills slot number 6 for those who are starting to forget how the Beatles revolutionized rock music.  Next is a fantastic song from Orpheus.  Some live REM from 1985 wraps up this week’s hootenanny.

Enjoy.  Tell your friends.

Newsome.Org Friday Night Music Video Hootenanny (Volume 4)

Volume 4 has some live Cranberries, a great live Ben Harper number, an old one by the vastly under-appreciated Bob Woodruff,  my favorite Band song, my favorite Counting Crows song, one by Chuckanut Drive and a great cover of Neil Young’s Powderfinger by Ruthless Tom.  An absolutely amazing bluegrass number by Emmylou Harris wraps up tonight’s hootenanny.

Enjoy.  Tell your friends.

Newsome.Org Friday Night Music Video Hootenanny (Volume 3)

Volume 3 begins with some live Layla (seeing Clapton play that opening riff live for the first time earlier this year was a before and after moment for me).  Next we have an old one by The Marshall Tucker Band, with my late buddy Tommy Caldwell on bass.  Then there’s a great Bottle Rockets number, some Smiths and my favorite early Dire Straits song.  The late, great Junior Kimbrough is next, followed by must be seen to believe live Dr. Hook.  My favorite Red Elvises song wraps up this week’s hootenanny.

Newsome.Org Friday Night Music Video Hootenanny (Volume 2)

Volume 2 starts off with one of the best covers I have ever heard.  Next comes a live one from 1966 by the greatest piano player who ever lived.  A great America (the band) number and some very fine (for at least 2 reasons) Mazzy Star are next.  Followed by Billy Swan (from 1975), Blue Rodeo and some live Pogues.  An awesome cover of Hotel California (in Spanish, no less) wraps up tonight’s hootenanny.
