Chris Crossroads, Holly Ruth & Show # 565

Armed with a banjo Chris Crossroads entered CJAM FM on Saturday June 20th. He last visited in November of 2014, which was during the station’s pledge drive. Formerly a resident of Windsor, Ontario, Crossroads originates from Winnipeg, Manitoba and currently resides in Winnipeg. Fresh from an impromptu show with Holly Ruth and The Bindle Band (also from Winnipeg) in Windsor the previous night and an appearance in London, Ontario prior to that, Crossroads appeared in good spirits with Holly Ruth, who also brought her acoustic guitar. Holly played two tracks on acoustic, with Crossroads on banjo accompaniment. She played a rootsy original titled “Little One" and an acoustic rendition of the Jazz standard “Autumn Leaves”. In between a mixed selection of country, garage and surf songs, Crossroads also provided two originals and a greased up version of Johnny Cash’s “One Piece At A Time”. Chris Crossroads will appear at Phog Lounge on Friday June 26th, in a live performance said to have a toxic waste theme. Holly Ruth will appear at Phog Lounge on Tuesday June 30th.
