The Kentucky Headhunters Come Out Swingin’ ‘Live at the Ramblin’ Man Fair’

The album, captured at the 2016 Ramblin’ Man Fair in Maidstone, UK, has the loose energy of a live show, but the band is as tight as a military operation. Like they're storming the English shores while also finding time to see some sights.

Colin James Has ‘Miles To Go’

James deserves a lot of credit for tackling sacred tunes. One has the sense that while part of the reason is to share his interpretations of these beloved songs, another reason is to send fans back to the originals.
