Dirt Road Radio on Live Lunch Break

Published August 22. 2012 4:00AM

It's high praise indeed to suggest that Stonington's Dirt Road Radio recalls the sounds of the most-excellent Americana band the Jayhawks.

As the 'hawks boast two very fine guitar/singer dudes in Gary Louris and Mark Olson, Dirt Road Radio features Mike "No, Not the Guy in the Waterboys" Scott and Dennis Walley.

Do the Jayhawks frequently use a female violinist? Yes, and fiddler Kelly Asciolla is an equal Dirt Road Radio member in good standing. And the songs! Melodic, harmony-sparkled and melancholic but roots-happy. See and hear Dirt Road Radio at noon on Thursday as they guest on our "Live Lunch Break" series, streaming right atcha at theday.com.
