We just wanted to let you all know what's happening with TEN FOOT POLECATS in 2012 as we continue to book out the year with shows, festivals, house parties, etc., and work on our second LP. Some new things (well, new to us) are on the horizon...Check it out.
NEW ALBUM RELEASE
We are currently recording our second LP with Rosy Rosenblatt, who has recorded albums with Paul Rishell and Annie Raines, Bernard Allison, and Grammy nominated albums by Susan Tedeschi, North Mississippi Allstars and Taj Mahal. Although we do not have a time table for completion, we'd like to think it will be available to the public sometime in the summer, if not sooner. We may even do a vinyl run of the new album!
We are also going to have some recordings on various album compilations, including our version of "Peaches" on Outlaw Radio Chicago Vol II (Solitary Records), and some songs for a complitation of artists who are playing Christyfest this year. If our recording continues to go well, we may also have songs coming out on other comps, including the JR/RL compilation by Hillgrass Bluebilly Records.
Besides our normal New England to Pennsylvania touring schedules, we are going to be playing shows in the following locales in August, as we are doing our first coast to coast tour: Western Montana, Washington, Oregon, Northern & Southern California, Arizona, Southern New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Illinois, Ohio, Western Pennsylvania, and Upstate NY. Show confirmations are still being worked out, so keep an eye on the schedule!
Look for us this year at: Deep Blues Festival, Northwest Deep Blues Festival - Cleveland, Christyfest (Shippensberg PA), New England Winter Blues Festival (THIS SATURDAY IN SALISBURY!).
Yes, this is a new one for us! Looks like Jim Chilson is going to make an appearance in a movie documentary about Mississippi Blues Legend, and I believe oldest actively touring musician, "T-Model Ford", who is estimated to be around +/- 95 years old. Our version of T-Model Ford's song, "Chicken Head Man", is also going to be used in the movie. The movie is a Chicken Head Man Production and is due to be released later in 2012. Also, check out T-Model Ford's backing band, GRAVELROAD. Their new album, "Psychedelta", is awesome!
Friday at Sligo Wreckords in Dover NH (private event) and Saturday at Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury for The New England Winter Blues Festival!!!
