After a wait that could be best termed "a while," Boyd Bristow has made his first solo recording on Maxine/Audiophile. It is a celebratory collection of folk, R&B, country, gospel, and rock and roll. Featured are some of Boyd's best songs, along with excellent works from fellow South Dakotans Tom Peterson, Bruce Preheim and Dennis Westphal. Cloudless Sky was produced by master musician and recordist Chris Gage at MoonHouse Studio in Austin, Texas. Chris and Boyd go back "a long while." With the help of a cast of great players, and especially aided by the beautiful backing vocals of Christine Albert, they have created a deeply satisfying recording.

August 6, 2014 I would like to thank the Friends of Traditonal Music of South Dakota for having Mike Connor, Guy Gullickson, Terry Pospisil, Kenny Putnam and me (we are the "Song Pilots") at the 2014 Sioux River Folk Fest on August 1st. It was a great honor for us to play for the folks. What a crowd the great bands pulled in, including, of course The Red Willow Band, which is hotter than ever. I would especially like to thank the Friends of Traditonal Music (FOTM, we call 'em) board for the honor of being inducted into the Friends of Traditional Music Hall of Fame. It is a great and high honor for me.
Okay....coming up.... A South Dakota Acoustic Christmas will be back on stage this December for one show, on December 9, at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls. East of Westreville and The aforementioned Song Pilots will share the stage for a show we are calling the South Dakota Christmas Extravaganza. Tickets go on sale at the Pavilion Box Office on Saturday, August 9. We will put the information with further details up on the Acoustic Christmas Facebook page.
And on September 13, if you are near Wessington Springs, SD, please come and see East of Westreville at the Wessington Springs Concert Hall. Wessington Springs has always been one of finest music towns in South Dakota, which is saying a lot. Great musicians of all kinds come from there. A few months ago the town was hit by a huge tornado. The folks there have carried on with business as usual, at least in terms of not giving up on the things that they feel are important to maintain for their quality of life. Like music concerts! Heres to all of you in Wessington Springs! Thats all for now....thanks.
