Cool artists I’ve known #1: Dirtfoot

Thought about this just this morning, just felt like coming up with a series of completely non-holiday related posts. I want to talk about some of the talented artists I’ve had the pleasure of knowing in my life. First up: the Shreveport band Dirtfoot. I went to college with Jason Bratlie, the cool, mellow banjo player of Shreveport band Dirtfoot. I like their sound. A LOT. They’ve got a gritty bluegrass boogie going on that reminds me of Frank Zappa’s groovy side. They’ve been featured on Louisiana Public Broadcasting, put out some damn find recordings, and are going to be touring with the Rev. Horton Heat come February. Most recently, their last album hit #9 on a roots rock chart. Give ’em a listen, and let’s hope they do more touring far and wide.
