The show is broadcast live on WDVX FM and WDVX.com. Tickets are $10 in advance, available at http://jigandreel.ticketleap.com/ or at the door starting at 6 p.m.

Listen online at http://www.wdvx.com/listen-live/

In the meantime, enjoy this Bullet Backstory from Bombadil. It was real sweet of them to take the time to answer our questions for this regular feature on the WDVX blog.

An Extra Helping of the WDVX Blue Plate Special Featuring Travis Linville Performing “Wishes”

Oklahoma’s Travis Linville joined us on the Blue Plate Special. The Oklahoma Gazette called Travis a “godfather of modern Oklahoma folk” for his performances, teaching, and production work during his 20-plus year career. A multi-instrumentalist with multiple CDs to his credit, Travis is also known for his work as a sideman with Texas songwriter Hayes Carll, who calls him “One of my all-time favorite musicians.” Travis’ newest release is called “Up Ahead” (March, 2017) and he closed his show with this tune, “Wishes”, from that album. Find out lots more about Travis Linville and see why Rolling Stone included him in their list of “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” (3/17) on his website at http://www.travislinvillemusic.com/

An Extra Helping of the WDVX Blue Plate Special Featuring the Mastersons Performing “You Could Be Wrong”

The Blue Plate Special recently welcomed The Mastersons to the stage. Well known for their hectic touring schedule as a duo, as well as members of Steve Earle’s band , The Dukes, Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore shared some tunes from their new CD, “Transient Lullaby” (May, 2017). The album was recorded in Austin, TX and they told us that most of the songs were written (by necessity) while on the road. This tune, “You Could Be Wrong”, is a perfect example. The Mastersons found themselves on tour in Lexington, KY, during the height of Kim Davis’ obstinate stand against the Supreme Court’s same sex marriage decision, so they penned the infectious melody in a dressing room before taking the stage with “Love Wins” draped across their guitars. Discover lots more about The Mastersons on their website at: http://www.themastersonsmusic.com/
