Last night I watched some of the weekly Wednesday night streaming video of the Music City Roots show from the Barn at the Loveless Cafe in Nashville, TN. There were some technical difficulties this week that seemed to grow worse as the program continued. The performer that I wanted to see was, John Cowan. He came on at beginning of the show. I hadn't heard of any of the other acts.
