Oxford American Annual Music Issue
Several weeks after the post I received an email from music writer and reviewer Amanda Petrusich (Seattle Weekly, Paste Magazine). She was working on an article about the Armstrong Twins for the annual music issue of Oxford American and wondered if I had any additional information. We exchanged a few emails and I wished her better luck than I had.
The 2006 Music Issue of Oxford American is now on the shelves of better newsstands. Amanda's article is worth the price of the magazine alone, but to sweeten the deal it comes with a CD of 24 fine examples of Southern music and articles about each of the artists.
I want to congratulate Amanda on her superb article and thank her for referring to the Old Blue Bus as a "wonderful Americana blog" (pg. 74).
