Listen again to the great Ralph McLean chatting to Hub founder Rob Ellen on BBC Radio Ulster about his quest to encourage concerts in peoples own homes, when the Medicine Show toured Ireland this year with Chuck Hawthorne and Libby Koch (featuring interview and session with them too) 35 minutes into the show.(click picture)
I am almost finished with booking the first leg of our European tour for the release of my latest album, "The Burn The Truth The Lies." The new album was recorded by Jim Vollentine (Patty Griffin) at Treefort Studios in Austin, and it sounds terrific. The album features some fantastic musicians, including Grammy-winning guitarist Joe Reyes and producer/keyboardist Rip Rowan (Old '97s, Rhett Miller), and the reviews have been very good.
