MP3 Dylan-Thomas Vance and Griff Bear - Live at Biddy McGraws
Lap slide guitar and fiddle chasing each other all over the bar... Like two squirrels running around a tree. Songs by Hank Williams, Robert Johnson, Johnny Cash, John Prine, Bill Frisell, Bob Dylan, Dylan-Thomas Vance, and Griff Bear.

BLUES: Acoustic Blues, FOLK: Folk Blues
Drop by Biddy McGraw''s nearly any Tuesday and you''ll get an earful of mournful, forceful blues from these Portland pros. If the teasers from the live CD the pair recorded at the Northeast Portland pub (due out mid-February) are any indication, their extended residency has served them well. Vance''s sandpaper vocals have gained an ever-rougher grain. The pace is faster. His guitar steams while Bear''s frenzied fiddle practically gooses listeners. If this duo''s sound gets any bigger or wilder, it''s liable to overtake the whole damn bar itself.
