Words by Sean Moeller
It's been a number of years of trying to get the great Bobby Bare Jr. into the Horseshack for a Daytrotter session and in a last minute scenario, the Nashvillian brought his bandmates (Matt Rowland of Ghostfinger and Deanna Varagona, occasionally of Dark Meat) for the day to Rock Island for a few hours this summer. It came just a day after a big Shel Silverstein event in Chicago at the Pritzker Pavilion - the beautiful, spidery, outdoor auditorium in Millennium Park, designed by Frank Gehry - where Bare Jr. and what he dubbed as the Popsicle Princess Promenade band performed Silverstein songs and more with his father, Bobby Sr. The trio was still shining considerably the afternoon following and session has a seasoned and scrappy feeling to it that keeps you rapt and interested in every turn and valley to these originals and covers that all sound as if they were scooped out of the same barrel. Bare Jr. grew up around some of music's legends, finding Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson or Johnny Cash in his kitchen on a given evening, and his own songs are imbued with the inherent recognition of what it takes to make a memorable and lasting three or four minutes.
