Hear the latest from Darrell Scott, Couchville Sessions, on the Four Corners feature CD


Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Darrell Scott returns to the KSUT listening area for this weekend's Four Corners Folk Festival, on the heels of his new CD Couchville Sessions. KSUT will feature the new release Friday, 9/2 at noon.

We'll let Darrell explain the story behind the new disc: "this recording spans from the springs of 2001 and 2002 when Danny Thompson, Kenny Malone, Dan Dugmore and I cut these songs in my living room on a road called Couchville  - then, time travels to the spring of 2015 when I brought Bill Payne to sit in a different living room (to a master, overdubbing IS time travel and I believe Bradbury would agree).  Do not be alarmed by the time in between 2001 and now - masters are unphased by time. The songs are mostly mine - with a song each by (masters): Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, James Taylor, Townes Van Zandt and Peter Rowan - add a narration by Guy Clark and you may have your story. And, just one more part to the tale, when we tracked these songs, one song was ringing out at the end (you know, where you try to be dead quiet for a few seconds) and I remember looking up and perched on the catwalk fresh from school and above the living room was my 11 year old daughter listening to us make racket in her home - she and I still share that moment - when we were witness to something, to each other, to what had just happened, to this full band of older gents playing like they were 18."
