So partner and I have to find a name for the latest member of our dynastic project and I quite like the name 'Arlo' (amongst others) so I thought I'd refresh my memory of the only tune I know associated with this name - Arlo Guthrie's 'Alice's Restaurant'. Anyway, as you do, the song plays, song finishes, next 1 starts (unselected as I'm not looking at the page). An hour later I not sure we're any closer to a name, but I really like this (previously unknown to me) artist and album:

Been to this party when I was much younger. I like the Dawes, but this is their best song to date IMO.

The refrain from this song, I had in my head, all weekend long ... (FWIW... the gourd-shaped string instrument is called a 'ngoni.')

Tribute Album to Songwriter John D. Loudermilk Debuts Sept. 15, 2017 



Features Emmylou Harris, Rosanne Cash, Ricky Skaggs, Doyle Lawson and Others

In one of the most ambitious projects yet launched to memorialize a Nashville songwriter, Vector Recordings will release on Sept. 15 the album "A Tribute to John D. Loudermilk."

 

Recorded live last year during a concert at Tennessee's Franklin Theatre, the project will also be spun off as a PBS special and possibly as a commercial DVD.


Among the more than two dozen artists performing on the 24-cut album are Emmylou Harris, Ricky Skaggs, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell, Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, John Jorgenson, Tommy Emmanuel and Lee Roy Parnell.
 

All artist royalties from the project will be donated to MusiCares, the Recording Academy's charity to aid in-need members of the music community.


Loudermilk, who was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1976, died in 2016, a few months after the tribute concert.
