Episode 166 - Harris Lemberg & Johnny Widdicombe

November 30th, 2010 · Comments

A NJ native, Lemberg studied Philosophy at the UW-Madison while earning a living playing gigs.  I gig-meister still, Harris' award-winning 2007 release, "Lost In My Own Little World" features (in Lemberg's own words) "funky childlike piano jazz in the the style of Vince Guaraldi".  Joined by another great jazz-philosopher, Mr. Johnny Widdicombe (Piper Road Spring Band), on bass. These are all old friends of ours, so this show promises to be a great reunion!

Their new CD, "Two Dollar Turpentine" just hit the streets, though the Dirty Shirts have been blazing their own honky-tonk trail for several years.  "Burkhart writes songs that would make Kristofferson reach over to turn up the radio..." (WI Public TV's Andy Moore--"30 Minute Music Hour")

A.V. Club-Madison says, "...one of Madison's most unmistakable musicians...you'll be hard-pressed to find a better acoustic bluesman in town. Even when Stephenson is right in front of your face, you can almost imagine the tunes are streaming off an old 78."  We second that emotion.
