Hi Kush,

Especially enjoyed the cover of "She Ain't Goin' Nowhere" by The Trishas.

Speaking of Guy Clark covers, David Allan Coe did a great job with his cover of
"Desperados Waiting For A Train."

Hi Steven,

It is an excellent cover version but I like their other tracks equally. Lot of soul. As they put it "Texas dirt, Mississippi river water, City lights and apple pie" - pretty accurate. Someone introduced me to their music last weekend. Note that Lloyd Maines (Natalie Maines Dad) is playing pedal steel on the She Ain't Goin' Nowhere performance on the right side of the stage.
Wish they had picked a more original name to call themselves though.
I just checked out David Allan Coe's version of Desperados Waiting for a Train. I'd put it up there with Jerry Jeff Walker's but my favorite version is by the Highwaymen, which I like better than Guy Clark original too.

Hi,

Kelley Mickwee of The Trishas will be opening for Ray Wylie Hubbard at the Sellersville Theater
tomorrow evening, April 30, 2014. The Trishas is currently on hiatus.

Here's a link to Ray Wylie Hubbard performing his song "The Messenger":

Hi,

Attended the concert and enjoyed it. "The Messenger" was one of my favorite Ray Wylie Hubbard songs performed that evening. The "old poet" spoken of in the song is Rilke and the Mr. Van Zandt mentioned in the song I take to be Townes Van Zandt. (Ray Wylie Hubbard was an interviewee in Brian T. Atkinson's book I'll Be Here In The Morning: The Songwriting Legacy of Townes Van Zandt.)

The Messenger is a great song Steven. Glad to hear you were able to enjoy Ray Wylie Hubbard and 1/4 of the Trishas. I am sorry that they are on hiatus as a group, hope it does not become a permanent break. They have a very unique sound together.
Am posting from India right now. Will spend a few days in Europe as well before heading home.

Savannah Welch loses leg

Postby Kush » Sun Dec 11, 2016 8:39 pm

I was shocked to read yesterday that on Nov 2 this year Savannah Welch of The Trishas got caught up in a freak car accident and had to have her leg amputated. Wishing her speedy recovery.

Although not a full time group - with family and other commitments - I thought they were a super talented foursome from Austin rivaling the Dixie Chicks.
