Captain Ellis and First Mate Rad are embarking on what is sure to be a cruise not to be missed or forgotten. Experienced seamen that we are we will truly be in our in our element as we we navigate friendly Gulf waters just south of Tampa. We will shout out to Cuba and proceed through turquoise Caribbean waters to the Isla Encantada: Cozumel. I can assure you we will be even more entertaining than we would be at a landlocked concert. Lord knows that is saying something! I swear something comes alive within both of us when we are cruising tropical waters. It’s hard to explain. You just have to be there I guess. See you on the high seas… First Mate Rad

Radoslav Lorkovic has recorded eight albums, but he is best known for the virtuoso musicianship and beauty he has put into many other artists’ music – both live and in the studio.
Born in Croatia before moving to America at age six, the classically trained pianist and accordionist played three shows with Ellis Paul this past weekend (June 5-6) and will be playing at least nine concerts this year with Jimmy LaFave. Throw in a few gigs with Susan Werner, various shows backing a host of musicians at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and his own shows, and it’s a typically busy year for Lorkovic.
Lorkovic performed with LaFave last month at the Cherokee Creek Music Festival in Cherokee, Texas, prior to Don Henley’s headlining set. The festival is held annually in a bucolic setting in Texas Hill Country, and the performance of Henley and his band, and a show the next night by Flaco Jimenez in San Antonio, were the best concerts Lorkovic says he witnessed this year or in 2014.

Wastelands and Casinos is now on Pandora!
It’s been quite a year or two for me from the vantage point of the piano (and B3) bench at Cedar Creek Studio in Austin. After fleshing out a section of Looking into You (Jackson Browne tribute featuring anybody and everybody) and playing on almost all of Hal Ketchum’s powerful new record, I stayed put in the keyboard room and doubled up piano and organ on every track of Jimmy LaFave’s new record “The Night Tribe.” The tribe, generally nocturnal was mostly active diurnally for this recording. The core band worked feverishly and furiously knocking out Jimmy’s eloquent new songs. A midday break was occasionally taken to secure exotic coffee and very specifically made tacos al pastor from an obscure hand truck deep in South Austin. Andrew and Anthony would accept no substitutes. Musta worked. Really proud to be on all this incredible and prolific Music Road Records stuff!
