BEYOND A SONG: Tim Carbone (Part 1 and 2)

BEYOND A SONG: Tim Carbone (Part 1 and  2)

Host Rich Reardin talks with musician and producer Tim Carbone. After 34 years of experience creating music as an artist, songwriter, session musician and producer Tim says he may not be up to playing music live for the rest of his life but you will have to pry his dead, clammy hands off the mixing console. Safe to say producing records is his passion.

Mostly known nowadays as the violinist for the roots/jamband Railroad Earth, Tim produced his first record in 1986 and since then has lent his talents to records all around the United States.

As a producer Tim has helped create dozens of albums for some of todays leading, up and coming artists on the Jamband – Americana scene.

Currently Tim Carbone has joined forces with  Phil Ferlino, Jeff Miller, Keith Moseley, Sheryl Renee, Matt Butler, & Duane Trucks to form the supergroup “The Contribution”

BEYOND A SONG: Butch Trucks (Part 2)

Host Rich Reardin talks with former Allman Brothers bassist David Goldflies about working with the late, great drummer for the band, Butch Trucks. David played bass for the re-grouping Allmans for 4 years in the late seventies and early eighties. Rich met David in 1984 after he played in the band, and so I asked him if he’d share some thoughts on Butch. As part of the fantastic rythm section that made up the Allman Brothers Band, David became friends with Butch and here shares with us some of the experiences and insights he gained playing in the band. David now plays Bass in the Panama City Pops Orchestra, as well as many other music projects, including working with Gary Allman, a cousin of Duane and Greg. This is the final episode / part 2 of a 2 part series.
