LEXINGTON, Ky. — This week Jason Sinkhorn, Haley Perros of Kentucky Music Preview and Bourbon Branch joined me for episode 62 of Wick’s Picks on Lexington Community Radio.
After hearing music from Warren Byrom & Fabled Canelands along with another from one of next week’s guests on Wick’s Picks in Driftwood Gypsy at the top of the program I sat down with Junction City-based singer-songwriter Jason Sinkhorn and Kentucky Music Preview’s Haley Perros to discuss Sinkhorn’s musical upbringing, friendship with area musicians Coby Langham and Zane Hilton, the artist’s 2018 album “Junction City, Kentucky,” and more ahead of his show on April 7 at the Green Lantern. During the segment we also heard Sinkhorn perform live versions of “The Runaway Dorothy Gale” and “Flat Rate Heartbreak Blues” along with “Go Out Drinkin'” and “Jericho” cut straight from the aforementioned album.
Following a halftime break that featured music from Scott H. Biram and Massive Cult, who play at The Burl on April 2 and April 5, respectively, Logan Gray and Kenny Bolin of Manchester-based roots foursome Bourbon Branch hopped into the studio to discuss their new album “Lost in Kentucky,” Manchester Music Festival and much more. During the hour the duo performed “If It Wasn’t For Your Heart” and “Feelin’ Alright” along with “Pillbilly Blues” and “Let it Go” from their new album. The band returns to the area on March 12 to perform at My Old Kentucky Foam in Georgetown.
