The last time I wrote about D. Charles Speer, AKA Dave Shuford of NNCK and other bands, it was because he was collaborating with Jack Rose on the really great Ragged and Right EP. This time, he’s got two fairly new records, one a solo effort in which he explores traditional Greek music, the other a band affair with the Helix, where he ranges all over traditional Americana styles – folk, country and zydeco.

Read the double-header review here

“Markos’ Cave” (from Arghiledes)

“Freddie’s Lapels” (from Leaving the Commonwealth)”

Looks like he’s going out on tour this month, mostly through the Midwest and south.
