Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on


Bruce and Bela

So what's Bruce Hornsby up to right now, anyway?  And better yet, what are his plans for this summer?

In a recent radio interview, Hornsby covered both subjects, talking about his current (and long-awaited) debut musical SCKBSTD and also his touring plans for the summer.  The first 45 minutes of the interview will net you plenty of SCKBSTD chat, but it's the last 5 minutes of interview time that really bring it all home.

First up, that previously mentioned live album (although the title has been amended slightly) Bride of the Noisemakers will be in stores in April, according to Hornsby. The live release will be a perfect fuse to set your fires burning in anticipation of what will certainly be an excellent summer vacation for Hornsby fans.  Hornsby says that he'll perform this summer at several festivals including this year's edition of Bonnaroo and he'll also spend the summer touring with the Noisemakers as part of a package tour featuring Hornsby and.....drumroll.......his longtime pals Bela Fleck and the Flecktones!  Hornsby calls the package "The Bela and Bruce Show" and says that the pairing will be hitting markets during July and August and promises that there will be the expected jam sessions featuring both Bela and Bruce.

Listen to the entire chat here (left click and download) via and if you're so inclined, don't forget to check out the "Free Noise" series featuring a ton of live Hornsby/Noisemakers recordings from the 2009 tour, for free!  (There are also some 2004 recordings posted that are not free, apparently newly migrated from similar downloads previously available at Munck Music.)

2010 found Bruce off the road taking a break to recharge the batteries, so his return to touring this summer will certainly be welcome!

    Thanks for this, Matt. I have never been a big Hornsby fan. It is not that I don’t like him, just that I never invested any time in listening to his stuff. You talk about him often enough that I think it is time for me to listen to both of you! Usually when I have trouble connecting with an artist, I go straight to the live material…where (I hope) there essence as a performer lives. I’ll check out this double-secret live album when it comes out (on Rdio, of course)
