Jayhawkin’

Attorney-friend Craig Kelley suggested that I post about The Jayhawks, an alternative country band.  I don’t know much about them.  I’m more a Dwight Yoakam, John Prine, Hank Williams kind-of-a-guy.

But because Craig is quite knowledgeable about different musical genres, I give you … The Jayhawks and this from an email from Craig:

“Most alt country people fans describe these two like Simon and Garfunkel, Lennon & McCartney and other great duos

If you like this stuff, then take a listen to Wilco, Uncle Tupelo, Cracker and other great bands of this genre of music.”

Turn it on, tune it in, and rip the knob off.

    What is this…1992-1997 again (my college days…daze)??? I suppose you will be talking about the Dandy Warhols next, DA. Haha.

    That’s the goal, brotha. Craig Kelley would be proud.

    How’s the river holding up for your property down there?

    The one-and-done singer-songwriter super-group The Thorns did a solid cover of Blue on their eponymous project: http://youtu.be/bHjEqmIVE6w

    I saw the Jayhawks at Variety Playhouse in Atlanta a few years ago. Actually it was just Gary Louris and Mark Olson and some supporting players, but it was a Jayhawks setlist. Here are a few of my favorite Jayhawks tunes:
