Honky tonk from Matt Masters

Alright I think I’m back from vacation so it should be all new posts from here on out.

Here’s a treat. I mean how many real honky-tonkers are stil out there anyway. Dale Watkins, Earl Scruggs, a handful of others. Add Matt Masters to that list and put him near the top. He’s a Canadian who actually really looks the part of a cowpoke.

Here’s a new song that’ll hopefully be on a record due out in early 2006. It’s called “Centennial Swell” and is a good update on the trusty old flood as metaphor song.

PS Check out today’s post about The Second Band at Swedesplease, it should really be posted here as well it’s that good.

    Have you heard Roger Wallace, out of Austin? A real-life honky-tonker, playing real-life honky-tonks like Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon. Check him out at http://www.rogerwallace.com — you’ll dig him.

    Love your site!

    hi there,
    thanks for putting my song up here. actually there is no real metaphor here. in the summer of 2005 Alberta faced the worst flooding we’ve seen in 200 years. that’s the story. hope you like it.

    Speaking of cowpoke… Matt Masters is a character played by John Wayne in Circus World (1964).
