Paul “Detour” Hartman’s Top 10 Songs of 2012

In no particular order:

1. White Freightliner Blues by Tim O’Brien & Darrell Scott
2. Heartland Sea by Cahalen Morrison & Eli West
3. Toujours Amants by Le Vent du Nord
4. Aïma Ymaïma by Terakaft
5. If You Were Mine by Mary Jane Lamond & Wendy MacIsaac
6. Roll the Woodpile Down by Bellowhead
7. Jag tror du står och sover (I Think You’re Absent-Minded) by Lyy
8. Fivio by New Riders of the Purple Sage
9. The New Rigged Ship/Eddie Curran’s Monaghan Twig/Kitty the Hare (reels) by Altan
10. Way Down Under by Little Feat

Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter makes two appearances on this list by co-writing many of the songs on the latest Little Feat and New Riders of the Purple Sage albums. Lamond & MacIsaac, Bellowhead, Altan, and Lyy do great jobs of updating traditional music, while Morrison & West supply some “new old-time music.”

The Top 10 Songs will be featured on Detour on Sunday, December 9th, 5-7 PM on WTMD.
