I've done three podcasts with Jethro Easyfields now, and booked him a couple of times for various gigs. He remains one of my favorite personalities in the local scene, is always extremely easy and generous to work with, and easily gets my vote for top five most-fun people to hang out with in the local music scene. To call him a "character" might be an understatement -- he's more like a "force." If you know him, you almost hang on his every word, knowing that about half of what he says (or is it simply the way he says it) is going to come out like some quotable line of poetry. If you haven't met him, well then I definitely want to be the one to introduce you. Some of my favorite stories start with, "Remember when I introduced you to Jethro?"

Best of all, his unique personality carries over and complements his considerable talents as a player, making Jethro something of the local music scene's equivalent of a troubadour warrior. He started off in Northern Indiana here in mid-1980's and later journeyed across the country to hone his skills, most-notably as a resident of New Orleans and Phoenix. Now as an elder-statesman of the local Americana "family" he has played with, and had his songs covered by, many of the great players here in town. Definitely take some time and check out his CD Release on April 20th (make of the choice of date what you will) at Square Cat Vinyl.
