Richard Laviolette - Someone To Tell My Story When I'm Gone

Geez — has it really been three years since the excellent You've Changed label celebrated it's fifth anniversary? Time flies, but friendship lingers, and this night featured many of the same musicians, either on stage or just hanging out in the now-fancier-than-ever basement of the Great Hall. Switching over to a full-on, seven-piece country band took a bit of time, and Richard Laviolette seemed a little nervous his group was going to get the proverbial hook after just three songs. They managed to get a reasonably full set in, but it gave a leave-it-all-out-there edge to this tune. With a John Prine drawling howl (plus Lisa Bozikovic's keybs prodding things along, plus Aaron Goldstein's pedal steel, plus Jessy Bell Smith's backing vox) this showed off the joyful energy on Laviolette's recent Taking The Long Way Home album.
