The Old Fashioned #16

Jim Miller
Jim Miller

When Jim Miller died in March, it was mostly reported as a sudden tragedy affecting his beloved Americana/country band Western Centuries. But friend of trad music Devon Leger pointed out in a lovely tribute that Miller had an extensive resume in old-time and bluegrass as well. So in TOF #16, we devote a set to rare sides featuring Jim as guitarist and singer. His voice on “Little Satchel” with Louisiana’s Dirk Powell is fantastic, as is Ginny Hawker’s mournful “The Back Of Your Hand,” with Jim on harmony. We kick off with Peter Rowan covering Woody Guthrie from his fine new album. And we treat you and ourselves to heart-rending historic bluegrass from Keith Whitley.
