Road Warriors Completing Fourth Year with Over 100 Dates, Including Acclaimed Tour with Steve Martin ASHEVILLE, N.C. (October 27, 2009) Rebel Records’ Steep Canyon Rangers are wrapping up a month that saw them performing on the 20th Annual International Bluegrass Music Awards Show with Steve Martin, before continuing on his acclaimed tour which brought them to The Late Show with David Letterman and The View; the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, Carnegie Hall, the Ryman Auditorium, and other venues in cities including Boston, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington, Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Santa Fe and Troy, NY. The Rangers currently grace the cover of the November issue of Bluegrass Unlimited, with a feature written by Penny Parsons. The band released their fourth studio album for Rebel, Deep in the Shade, on October 6, and it is currently at #3 on Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums chart (issue date October 31). Samples of some of the album reviews follow: “Though all five members are terrific pickers, the focus is almost always on the song, with Woody Platt singing the story and his bandmates musically reinforcing the mood, whether it’s the wistfulness of ‘The Mountain’s Gonna Sing’ or the vengeful kiss-off of ‘Heartbreak Is Real.
Tuesday, October 27, 2009 Del McCoury Band FAMILY CIRCLE Having recently celebrated his 50th year in the business, Del McCoury should be commended for continually testing the boundaries of bluegrass music, a feat that's earned him slots at Bonnaroo and made fans out of Elvis Costello and Björk. Joined by his two sons as well as bass player Alan Bartram and acclaimed fiddler Jason Carter, the septuagenarian acts half his age as he covers songs by Mark Knopfler, Jerry Lee Lewis and other acts not typically associated with the high lonesome sounds of bluegrass. Knopfler's 'Prairie Wedding' sounds as though it could be a McCoury original, but the most interesting cover on 'Family Circle' is the Charlie Rich-penned 'Break Up,' which was made famous by Jerry Lee Lewis during the golden age of Sun Records. The boys replace Lewis's frenetic piano riffs with sharp acoustic picking as McCoury channels his inner rockabilly singer, accenting his mountain tenor with a few Killeresque vocal theatrics. It's not all rock-and-roll here... Read full review in The Washington Post.

Oct. 26-- 'Lincoln in the Land of Bluegrass,' a bluegrass-based musical on the life of the nation's 16th president, is getting a lot of attention more than eight months after it was staged at Owensboro's RiverPark Center. The musical, which featured a cast of more than 300, debuted on Feb. 12 -- the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. The play was staged by the International Bluegrass Music Museum. Earlier this week, Gabrielle Gray, the museum's executive director and the show's producer, learned that a photograph of students from Foust Elementary School performing, 'Yes, We're Really Free!,' will be featured in the Kentucky Arts Council's 2009 Annual Report. The Kentucky Department of Travel will also use the photograph in some of its publications, Gray said. Wednesday, she learned that Kentucky Educational Television will broadcast a tape of the performance five times between Nov. 3 and Nov. 6 on KET3, an instructional television service for K-12 students and teachers. Times are 7 and 11 p.m. on Nov. 3; 11 a.m. on Nov. 4; and 10 p.m. and midnight on Nov. 6.

Old-Timer, Still Telling Mountain Tales By CHARLES McGRATH
Ralph Stanley is one of the last, and surely the purest, of the traditional country musicians. He’s such a stickler that he has no use for the dobro, let alone electrified instruments, and he’s not overly fond of the term bluegrass. He prefers to call what he performs “that old-time mountain music.” He plays the five-string banjo in the claw-hammer style he learned from his mother — or he used to, until arthritis caught up with him — and he sings in a raw, keening Appalachian tenor.
The songs tend to be about hard times, unfaithful lovers, deceased children, lonely graves. One of his most famous, “O Death,” is a pleading dialogue with the Grim Reaper himself. It used to be said that when you heard a Ralph Stanley tune, you either wanted to get drunk or...

Last Thursday, Murphey appeared on WSM Radio with Bill Cody where the song was played during the show.

Also during the VIP Showcase, Murphey performed another new single, “Running Gun” with bluegrass veteran, Audie Blaylock & Redline much to the delight of the audience. The song will also be available on “BUCKAROO BLUE GRASS 2.”

LIZ MEYER NEWS: Liz missed the EWOB Festival 2009 due to severe back problems caused by an aggressive breast cancer invasion of the bones that virtually destroyed her spine (backbone). Since early June, Liz has been undergoing treatment at a very special little hospital in southern Germany.
German cancer clinics are considered the gold standard in cancer treatment worldwide, and Klinik St. Georg is the gold standard among German cancer clinics. Liz attributes this to its medical director, Dr. Friedrich Douwes, whom she describes as brilliant, creative, and years ahead of his time. Dr. Douwes is also the President of the German Oncology Association. Although Liz arrived looking like a lost cause, her treatments are going very well. The cancer invasion has been reversed, her bones are slowly and successfully being remineralized, and soon, with lots of physiotherapy and exercise, Liz will be able to sit up for the first time in 4 months. She expects to be home in Holland before Christmas.
You can write to Liz at this address. LIZ MEYER (patient) c/o Klinik St. Georg, Rosenheimer Str. 6-8 D-83043 Bad Aibling, Germany"
Liz's Strictly Country Records CD THE STORM (backed by Bela Fleck, Emmylou Harris, Sam Bush, Jerry Douglas, Glen Duncan, Ron Block, Rob Ickes, Stuart Duncan, Mark Johnson, Byron House, Shad Cobb, Kenny Malone, and Chris Brown) is enjoying a successful radio release in the USA & Canada. #15 for Folk & Bluegrass Radio Airplay, August 2009 Liz's beautiful song 'Trust Me' has also been released on the most recent King Easy radio sampler. RADIO DJs & PRESS: Email a reply to this address to request your promo CD. We are very grateful for your support, and welcome your reviews. At a time when Liz is unable to set foot out of bed, she says it means the world to her to see her songs take wing and fly. Liz has been too busy with EWOB work, cancer treatment, and lots of extra sleep to complete her new website with the wonderful Thirsty Lizards, but she intends to see the new website completed this fall. http://lizmeyer.com/
